A family member asked to recommend a decent starter DSLR for an upcoming trip. Found this which seems fairly good considering the 50mm sells for £100 on its own. I gather the 18-55mm Canon now bundle is not image stabilised anymore (however, with the 50mm f/1.8 this should not be an issue in low light). JL also include a 2-year warranty, and Canon are offering a free photo book.
***Update*** it seems that John Lewis are now out of stock of this bundle, however, the same can be obtained from Jessops
for the same price (not sure about warranty with them, however, a possible 3.03% TCB available too)
