To clarify.... is this the ad you are referring to?
OK.... I think I see what you're looking at..... I think it is a typo. Need someone from Future Shop to verify it.

You mentioned this is your first DSLR......
I strongly recommend visiting the store and try out the 18-55mm... I know many who have tried the 18-55mm and hated it because the zoom range was too limited. Also when your subject is more than 6 feet from you, you find yourself needing a 55-200mm. But now you are stuck with carrying two lenses and risk getting dust in the camera.
Personally, I recommend getting an 18-200mm as your starter lens. The added zoom range is more practical for a beginner. As you get more advancd, get a 50mm to minimize distortion and maximize light. If not, consider f/2.8 lenses.
Future Shop does not sell camera bodies for entry cameras. So you might need to visit a proper camera store.
Finally, I like Nikon.
