Have been looking around for a half decent DSLR and this looks a good deal to me, especially as it comes with 2 lenses.

Supplied with Canon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens and 75-300mm f/4-5.6 non USM lens

The Canon EOS 450D
One of the most popular digital SLRs on the market and its easy to see why. Blending uncompromising performance with ease of use, this model is renowned for its image accuracy and ability to perform in low light, such as dawn and dusk.

The 12.0 megapixel CMOS sensor gives you plenty of detail for up to poster size prints. Other fantastic features include 3.5fps continuous shooting, wide-area 9-point AF system and a large 3.0-inch LCD with Live View mode, plus the EOS Integrated Cleaning System.

Not a bad body (Bit long in the tooth now), but just about 2 of the worst lenses that Canon ever put its name on!)
#3
should be the IS version of the 18-55, which is better than the original 18-55 non is. cant speak for the bigger lens tho, sorry. there not enough info about it.

I'm upgrading from a point and shoot camera, so dont know too much about lenses and stuff. To me it looked ideal for my step up to DSLRs. Would this kit not be the case then? Given that this is about the top of my budget, what body/lenses would you suggest? Cheers!! ;-)

Not a bad deal. I regressed though from a DSLR to point and shoot, After getting a Sony HX5V and Panasonic TZ7, I very rarely use the DSLR. Quite happy as more discreet. takes fantastic video as well. Voted Hot for the deal.:thumbsup:

Imo this would be a poor choice of DSLR for the money... the lenses are pretty poor, the 18-55mm isn't an amazing lens especially given its not the IS version and the tamron 75-300mm is nothing special.

If you were spending around £550 on a dslr and wanting to go canon I would conider is a 550d with 18-55mm IS which could be picked up for around £650 after canon cashback. Obviously there's no second lens but you'd be getting a far far superior body. That said, the cashback promotion has recently finished 550d so unless one can wait till another rolls around I would recommend you look on a particular auction site for deals. Infact one with lens only a month old went today for only £450, nice bargain someone got there!

If going Nikon the closest in a similar price range would be the D5000 or D90, I would advise against getting a D90 now as Nikon are due to replace it with a new model within the next few months, the D3000 and D5000 are both good buys and being quite cheap would give you some cash to spend on another lens (like a Nikon 55-200mm vr which is a great cheap lens). Being a Nikon fan I would argue they have the edge on Canon in terms of body, picture quality and quality of included lens, that said the Canon still has its advantages in some areas such as built in motor in the body (cheaper lenses) and the 550D shoots great video for any wouldbe amateur film buffs (see youtube for examples), so its apples and pears really. Consider older models too, deals can be had if you look around =)

Whatever you get though definately set aside some cash for some accessories and an extra lens or two and an external flash unit, otherwise you just aren't making the most of your purchase. Happy shooting.

If you can get to an airport or anyone you know is flying (even domestically) then the D90 with 18-105VR is £740 at Dixons Duty Free. Then you can claim for the £60 cashback. It also comes with a spare genuine Nikon Battery that is £32ish on Amazon and an IR Remote that is worth £15.

And if the D90 successor does come out then you get 60 days to return the camera*, even if used, so you an buy the new version. *Only applies at BAA Airports (LHR/EDI/GLA/SOU...) Though it may be very expensive so the D90 is probably a good price as it is nearing end of life.

I'd recommend you have a look at the different options in person. A camera that ticks all the boxes specification wise might in practise be unsuited for personal use. In the end I decided to go for the Pentax K-x, as the camera's small size and grip felt right for me and it had all the features I was looking for. Curry's have a decent deal on at the moment for the twin lens kit:

Went for the Nikon D5000 in the end. Worked out at £455 after Quidco, so with the money saved I bought the 55-200mm VR lens from ebay. :thumbsup:

Excellent! That's a great camera. I love the flip down display.

Check out [url]www.nikonians.org[/url] and also the RockyNook book authored by Darrell Young, a Nikonians member. I have the D90 and it is a well written guide.
