Is this a good price for a package?

Petrol carry bag,
Tiffen UV haze filter
Bogen 503 tripod.
all for $6250?
Bear in mind I'm not going to buy a P2 card yet as i am not shooting any HD untill September, and by then the 16gb cards will be out, so i will buy one of those then.
Technically, the full price including the card in September is like $7000.
Is this a good price for all that?

In a couple years, the HD camera world will have evolved even more, making the HVX200 old news.
It's just a personal preference of mine to not invest in any technology that isn't upgradeable, as far as software goes. I spoke with a DP who shoots a lot with the HVX, and he assumes (keyword) that future generations of the Panasonic HVX will come with options for software upgrades, keeping the cameras capabilities up to date with whatever would come out later. And it seems pheesable, since with the P2 cards, there aren't any moving parts, thus making this assumption a definite possibility, right?

And remember this is a personal opinion. Do you lease (rent) or buy your car? In most cases you buy it so you can have the equity of selling it when your done or at least use it for nothing after its paid off. The catch is really how much are you going to use this camera?
