Doesn't seem too bad a price IFyou want that combination of lenses. I have no need for such a long lens and it gets poor reviews anyway (which is probably why they are bundling it as no-ones buying it on its own). However, you could sell it on and just use the 18-55IS kit lens (which for a kit lens gets great reviews!). As the 70-300 retails for £124 you would be lucky to get half that making this deal around the £520 mark, cheapest price on cmaerapricebuster is £479 without a card or bag so its still a reasonable, if not mega-hot deal. Good find!

Where is this cheaper, cold voter's please explain.
#3
I would be patient as the 450D has just been replaced by the 500D so would expect lots of offers for these to start cropping up...
#4
looks a good price
#5
seems good to me, lurve my 450 :-)

hmmm i posted this is on to see what you guys think as i was just about to buy it! Been looking for a 450D for a while and need one asap before my holiday...i also will need to get a bag and a card anyway! But is the extra lens really not that good?? I thought with the kit lens wouldn't give me enough zoom! So thought this deal would of been perfect for me...but now i'm contemplating whether to get it or not.. :?

It's not brilliant, but it's a decent offer. The tamron lens get's mixed reviews, personally I stick to Canon or Sigma, but you get what you pay for.
If you're happy with the price then go for it.
If you're going to be taking lots of pics I'd get another memory card too, but you'll find a cheaper one elsewhere. :)

Problem is that without a tripod or image stabilisation you probably wont want to use 300mm anyway so its a false economy (the lens isn;t very sharp in the first place by all accounts so any degradation may be VERY noticeable). Plus you don't really want to be changing the lens every two seconds, which you will probably do with a min of 70mm, as you will get dust etc on the sensor. I'd say that the sharpness of the 18-55IS lens you will get plus the high pixel count should enable you to crop your images to "zoom" =, it also means that you will be carrying less kit. That said, its still not a bad price for a full kit.

I would say that anyone EXPECTING the 450d to drop in light of the 500dd may be disapointed. The 400d (which I have) never really dropped in price when the 450 came out!! One thing to note though is that Canon historically have annual £50 rebate periods but it sounds like you can;t really wait?!?!? Sounds like this will be your first DSLR, if so, I think you will be amazed at the quality you wont worry about a bit of discount :thumbsup:

Nice one guys, appreciate the advice :thumbsup: Good point about cropping the images because its of such high quality anyway! Think what might be best is just to get the camera with the kit it comes with then later get any additional equipment!

And you will once you get the bug :-D. I've just upgraded my lens, now Im looking for a nice flashgun..... then I'll need a sto-fen diffuser then probably need another lens, then another filter...... it never ends :-D

One thing I would definitely advise is a filter, just get a decent UV one to start with, some say that they reduce the picture quality but it will offer a bit of protection to your lens from bumps and other unwanted contact :thumbsup:

If you want any more pointers pm me, I took ages to decide on mine but I've never regretted it for a second.

I have used a 300mm lens for the past 18months with out a tripod no problem, i guess it depends how much you booze lol :whistling:

Hic.... whadayou trying to zay?? ... hic :-D You are right, but it depends on the lens and as you say, the photographer but more over, the subject i.e. landscapes etc as opposed to sporting action etc. Was just warning the guy that on cheaper lenses a long reach can be limited :thumbsup:
