I want to buy a camera for mostly outdoor photography and some indoor. I don't have a small fortune to spend. I want to keep it under $1000. Need some advice about what to buy from you gurus.

What do you all think about this package from Bjs?

Don't know much about the rebel. . I got the cannon 70d and a tamron 70-200 lens for right around $1k. Its a nice set up. At some point I'll upgrade the glass.

That's a nice set up If your just getting started in photography. As a outdoor/wildlife photographer reach is everything. You will need a long lens at some point or learn how to get really close to your subjects. It's kinda like hunting. If you can afford a little more then a $1000.00 I would go for the Canon 80d setup. That body will last you a long while, then add a 400mm or 100-400mm and you'll be golden.

The 70d definitely looks better for fast shooting.

My buddy is a pro and uses the 80d. That's what he is trying to talk me into.

One? Shouldn't I have a backup?

Looks good.  Tamron lenses are pretty decent.  Not as crisp as some of the Cannon glass but a good place to start.  Also the 70d has 1.6 crop sensor so that 300mm lens is the same as 480mm on a full frame camera, albeit much more pixelated than the full frame at that length.
