For people who are in the 33% and 39.6% tax bracket, and subject to AMT, there is high likelihood that you that you will pay money back to the IRS.

Fuji XE-1 with 18-55mm Lens AND 35mm F/1.4 Prime Lens The XE-1 is being heavily discounted right now because the camera is going to be replaced by the XE-2. I got lucky with mine.
