Ok, ok, I know I am taking a big risk here.
This is probably a "too expensive" item for this site, but this is an amazing bargain.
It is only for serious photographers, no snappers or DSLR beginners.

The camera is the 5D, still amongst the best quality DSLR with a FF sensor. Recently superceeded by Canon and being sold by retailers who have stock at £1,199 for the body. The 24-105mm is probably the best FF walk about lens around and has image stabilisation (as well as being a Canon L lens), it is usually £699-799. The 100-400mm is also a L lens and is stabilised and is one of Canon's most popular "nature/wildlife" lenses, lowest price at the moment is £937.

Those good at maths will come to £2.9k. 7dayshop is selling this bundle at £2.2k.
I have a 5D and would have bought this if it was available at the time I bought mine.

7dayshop is also selling a deal with the 5D body and 24-70mm f2.8 lens, excellent quality but more specialised for only £1,749.

Its probably last chance to get the classic 5D new and the lenses will last for ever if kept in good condition.

So, running the risk of upsetting the "£99" crowd, I just wanted to point out this bundle to serious photographers, as few may lurk here, and this kind of deal is very rare.

I also wish hotukdeals had a camera category "hint hint"

I put up a deal for this camera's successor recently and it went freezing cold immediately, and then got pulled for some reason.

It's not a Liddle pack of 100 carrier bags for 20p deal, so expect it to go cold :)

It's a top camera, and hot deal IMHO. I bought the 5Dii before xmas for a lot more money :(

Have some heat.

enjoy your camera!

awesome price for an awesome camera. To be honest, if you are pro. there is nothing more you will need. That 100-400 lens is a blinder.

The D700 is wonderful. Also pricey at the moment, but hopefully there will be some hot deals in a couple of years on this one!

HOLY COW!
That is sooo expensive
but by the look of other peoples comments, it must be hot so
+9 from me :D

Ive been tempted to become a 'serious photographer' when i see some beautiful autumn landscapes (in real life), but it seems like alotof effort basically!

I got a bit lucky with my D700, I managed to pick up a New D300 Kit with 24 - 70 & 70 - 200 Lenses MB-D10 Grip and some other bits for £2,000 and sold the D300 for a D700 which cost £1,400. A lot of money I know but a heck of a lot less than if I bought everything separately!

I would have ended up with the Canon kit I think if I had waited.

excellent, exactly what i'm looking for, very tempted! i totaly agree that a hot deal should be a measure of relative value irrespective of cost.

well written and fun to read. I know nothing about photography but would like to be better one day lol.
#14
Great deal, for those who would really have to be serious photographers, either in their line of work or rich hobbyists!

Makes my Sony A200 body+lens seem irrelevant. Going to keep snapping away taking "pictures" though, and strive to get what I term as "photographs"......thats the beauty of DSLR cameras though, you can keep snapping away, hopefully one day I will master taking "photographs" instead of good pictures.
#15
Use this camera when I shoot weddings, events and portraits. Just a joy to use and so rewarding. Can't wait to have enough money for the mkII that's just come out.

great price with those lenses

10x out of my budget :)

Thats what I was thinking when I just looked at my Sony A200, its 10x less the cost of this and I truly know it is a mere budget DSLR.

Excellent price for a top end pro camera package. Got the 20d myself which is pretty good but wish I'd got the cash to upgrade. The site I use most for checking camera and equipment prices may be of interest to others. Try this.......... http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/

That's some deal you got with the D300 kit... I paid £900 for the D300 body only... am hoping one day that i'll be able to afford the 70-200mm F/2.8!

If you buy goods online from Jersey or Guernsey
Customs duty will not be charged.
Import VAT is charged if the value of the goods is €22 (£18) and over.
Many Channel Islands companies are part of a ‘VAT pre-payment’ scheme. This means you will be asked to pay import VAT if the value of the goods is over €22 (£18) at the time you pay for the goods. In this case you will not have to pay any additional costs when you receive your goods.
Excise duty will be charged for some goods, for example alcohol and tobacco.

therefore normal VAT

confirm with 7dayshop though

We're all for deals on expensive items here at HUKD as this post showed!
#27
On the face of it a great deal (but only if you happen to have wanted those two lenses anyway - but that said, they are cracking lenses).

If you total the cost of the two lenses & subtract it from the package price, it means you're effectively paying £640ish for the 5D.

This is where I have to raise an eyebrow. This is a fairly old camera now (a cracker though!), but it's street price of £1199 hasn't really budged in over 6 months. This is crazy bearing in mind it has a successor out.

In my opinion, using a typical camera price depreciation curve, the 5D should really be available for about £800 (street price) - I can't account for why it hasn't fallen in price for so many months. Have a look at the graph which tracks street prices....it's pretty much a straight line! (give or take a spurious spike)

http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/prod2.html

So yes, vs what you have to pay (still) for a 5D MkI elsewhere, it's a great deal but the 5D body price has been held higher than it should have been for a good while.

But if you're in the market for this camera & these two lenses.....you'll certainly not do better than this - HOT!!!!
#28
That's an interesting deal - and two excellent lenses in with the kit.

I've noticed something of a rash of 'body only' auction sales for the 5D - symptomatic of people upgrading I'd have thought. I think the prices where holding strong in the run up to xmas (£700-£800) but I'd suspect that once the 5D MkII beds in and prices drop the the older model will tumble some more.

Still an excellent deal - and high value glass that ill always hold its price.
#29
The 5D has held it's value because there is no real replacement for it. For many, the 5D MkII has just too many megapixels, with the resulting files taking up far to much storage space, and the current new price is far too high. For that very reason I bought an original 5D last month for a good price of £975. The old 5D is also in quite short supply, with retailers moving to the MkII.

As said, the deal is good but only if not owning those lenses already. Many 5D owners like myself already have a full set of L lenses.
#30
5Dii was in *very* short supply pre xmas, hence fewer 5D's sold used. Expect the 5D to drop in price over the next couple of months now though.

I'd have considered this deal, and it is HOT, however I suspect those wanting a 100-400L and 24-105L would want the newer camera too now. 5D takes GREAT pics, but is a pretty old camera now.

I can vouch for the two lenses, as I use both these myself. They are truly excellent.

I think the 5Ds (new) will probably all be gone soon.

Alot of 5DII folk also seem to be holding on to their 5Ds as spares.

That said the 2nd hand price will go down. I expect it to still stay reasonable due to the quality of this camera.
#32
That's an unbelievable price, who the hell pays 2k for a camera lol Like others have said, those in the know say its a hot deal so thats good enough for me but i'm surprised plane spotters at airshows don't get mugged if they are carrying 2k round their neck.

Thing is, if buying a camera like this, really you should be earning from your pictures.

Listen up...my kids are really ugly, I need all the help I can get to snatch a quality photo.

As for my wife...she'll just have to stay unphotographed until I can afford a decent fish-eye lens.

The assumption being if you're wealthy you don't need to save money?

lol, how do you think wealthy people get wealthy in the first place?!

well, (so I've heard) they tend to maximize their income & minimize their outgoings (that'll be where a site like this comes in) they bank the savings.
