Yes it was brand new I had ordered the Body only because I already had an older Canon camera and I used the lenses from that camera. The T5i is a great camera, be prepared the pictures are large (file size) so you will need memory cards with a fast write rate (at least a 10x) I pefer th Ultra that can transfer 30 mn,sec
Yes, it is brand new body and lens, as other responded. T3i is a great camera, very good pictures and the lens included in this kit is great if you need to take pictures from long distances (still is an average lens, check for more details in Canon.com).
There are only three options offered by Canon for this model: - Body Only - Body plus 18-55mm lens - Body plus 18-135mm lens
Now, if you are asking about the model, this is not the latest EOS Rebel model. The latest model is the EOS Rebel T4i.
