i paid £400 cash and got the rest on 0% intrest for six months :-)

Was thinking about buying a 40D but discovered the 500D. I know the 500D take HD video and seems the better buy.

Any suggestions

have a look at reviews on the net 40d vs 500d and you should be able to make your own mind up :-)

99% of people there choose the 40d over the 500d :-)

but it really is down to what your going to use it for

hope this is of some help

no it was a proper boxed one, did you ask if they can transfer one from another shop?

i think the extras are up to the store manager but still a good deal with out them

result ..just picked one up from the bolton branch for £790 including bag and 8gb card
:thumbsup:
#11
just unpacked at home to find out the camera takes a compact flash card and not the sdhc which was given ( lexar 8gb premium). which one did you get with the camera?
#12
just had a look and it is an sd card :-(

take it back and say that it will not fit into the camera,
#13
just had it changed with a lexar extreme compact flash card III (was priced at over £50) but 4gb only still can't complain:thumbsup:
#14
Sounds promising that someone else got the same offer. I wonder if all managers are told to offer bag + card with any SLR purchase to clinch the deal?

Planning to buy a 40D or 50D in the next month or so, and my local has one of these bundles in stock. Was going to go for body only, but might as well go for this if I can wangle some freebies without too much hassle.

Well, the 50D has been out a while, and was deliberately put out at a higher price point than the 40D.

The theory on some photography forums is that when the 60D comes out (which should be due before the end of the year if they keep to their plan of annual updates) the 50D will drop to current 40D prices. Any remaining 40D stock may drop in price further then.

What Lowepro bag did you get with your camera, by the way?

was a small camcorder bag, my sis in law has it for her camera, it's to small to fit anything into, plus i already have a cam bag

I got the Lowepro altus 120- quite small really can only take the kit lens and an additional battery
