The deal is here - a few quid saving on the dixons offer that's currently voted hot.

perhaps a silly question, but i have a 35 mm Canon SLR and have 2 lenses for it.

Will these lenses fit with a Canon digital, I see no reason ( other than more money) why they wouldnt make them compatable but would like to know first :)

Thanks

If it is a Canon EOS 35mm SLR then the lenses will fit. However, keep in mind that a 50mm lens on a 35mm SLR will equate to approximately a 80mm lens on a digital body. So basically, a wide angle lens will no longer really be wide angle once on a digital body.

Good price getting better every day!

Thanks, I searched the Currys site, but this deal didn't come back.

Hot as hell!
#10
I wonder how much cheaper this is going to get. I'd love to see it move towards the Nikon D40 price. Then all you need is the Sigma or Tamron 18-200mm lens off ebay and you're laughing.

No problem ferple!

If anyone else is having problems with links, just go to http://www.currys.co.uk/ , click on "Photography" on the menu on the left-hand side, then click on "D-SLR Cameras" and you should see it second to last on the best offers bit.

Only thing I would worry about is that the lens has an aperture ring otherwise if aperture electronics are not compatible you are stuffed. You will probably need to manually focus too which if you are used to a full size pentaprism (these have pentamirror and are significantly smaller) viewfinder it won't be a very pleasant experience.
I might be wrong so I would check first!

Do the what with the what now?

It says cashback on the body only. Does this therefore apply to the body/lens kit too?

I asked the same question on another thread too because its not exactly clear. Apparently there is a Canon brochure in jessops that says that the standard lens kit with the body is also included. If you look on Currys/Jessops website they both say £45 cashback on this product.

Not sure about the aperture ring, but my Sigma lens for Canon fit made my friends digital camera die! (it worked after taking the battery out and putting it back in with a digital compatible lens).

Not a silly question. If your lenses are EOS and auto focus (which I think all EOS lenses are) then they will be able to be used with the 400D.

Interestingly, it was only Canon who made their lens systems compatible between film and digital camera's. They had foresight when they introduced the EOS film system, but received a lot of flack as they moved from the old FD system.

The multiplication factor mentioned before is true of all lenses used on the 400D, and any crop-factor camera's for that matter. All lenses use numbers referring to 35mm focal backs (sensor size), and for the 400D a multiplication of 1.6 gives you the equivalent focal length for angle of view.
Note however, that it doesn't make your lens more telephoto, as the perspective achieved is still the same as when using a full-frame camera, it is simply a cropped version of the same composition.
It is these perspective and cropping issues that confuse most people.

The Canon promotion in December was worded exactly the same and cashback was paid on this package with no problems!! Hope this helps.
#19
Hmmm. I was pretty much set on getting a D40x, was going to wait a month or two to get some cash together. The more i look, the less I see it on sites. I know the D60 was its replacement but I expected to see the d40x's for a while longer at decent prices. Well...shall i be tempted by this 400D??

It depends on whether or not you already have nikon/sigma/canon lenses which are compatible with the 400D/D40X/D60. If you just upgrading from a bridge or point and shoot then it will be down to personal preferance - take a look in a camera shop. Of-course the nikons will cost £65-£100 more at the minute and theres no motor pin in the nikon bodies.

This would be my first DSLR, i have used SLR before, but not in depth, and not owned one. So im coming from digital compact. I've handled both, and thought d40x was more comfortable. Is the lack of a motor pin in nikon bodies a major issue?
#22
The canon cash back is for any 400 D with or without lens. According to Canon Uk that is.

The selection of lenses is less and they cost a bit more because of this. This is because the autofocus motor is in the lens instead of the body. I upgraded from a Fuji finepix s5600 (incidently an Argos deal posted on here) and bought a 400D from the canon outlet (ebay) which weighed in at £286.81 plus £5.99 but that is a "refurb". I think mine was brand new but the box was damaged so it was sold this way. Obviously at todays prices, its worth paying the extra £20 and getting a proper new one without any risk.

Take a look on http://www.dpreview.com/ for reviews and the pros/cons.
#24
There are other advantages of the 400D over the D40/x, which I outlined in this post a couple of months ago.

Hope it helps in making your decision. Remember, by buying a dSLR, you're not just buying a camera, you're buying into a whole camera system. The more flexible that system, the happier you'll be in the long term. As the D40 is quite limiting in the system it employs (only one macro lens for instance, and no fast primes) it could become a frustrating camera for you in the long-term.
#25
Go to Jessops and hold them both, it was my first DSLR and to be honest I was stuck between the Nikon d40x anf the Canon eos400. They were neck and neck to the finish but the Canon just "felt" better to hold for me so I went for that one!!! The only problem I have found is that I have no Hard Drive space!!!! The sound and feel when the shutter release and the 3 frames per second speed is soooooo cool you just take LOADS!!!!!

Good luck with the decision, both are fantastic and Im sure you wont regret buying!! Just take the plunge and get snapping!!!

:0)
#26
i think you guys have helped a lot with my decision - and this great deal - thanks! I've been looking for ages at DSLRs and really NEED to get snapping! I was tempted at going for the D80, but thought it was too great a jump from digital compact. This deal has pretty much sealed it for me...

ps. Monkeyboy - just read your comparison of the two and that helped a lot, and has almost made up my mind!!
#27
I took the plunge! Thanks to everyone that posted the offer and guided me further! Now i just gotta sit and wait... balls...

Jolly good, glad I could help!

You'll have years of keeping busy now you have a proper camera.
But you'll also end up spending loads on lenses and kit, if you're anything like me!
#29
i am tempted myself, will give it a day or 2 before making a decision.... however you can pickup 2 spare compatible batteries from 7dayshop.com for £9.99 + p and p
#30
so i got my 400d!!! haven't had any time to play with it yet, but its all very exciting and can't wait for the weekend to test it out! currys were very good with the order - ordered Thurs, arrived Tues morning - although it supposedly 'arrived' on the Monday, but no evidence of it. All fine in the end, DHL are plums.
