Have this camera and love it. This kit lens is actually pretty good, but I am looking at getting some new lenses and they're pricey as.. oO

grab an adapter and some legacy lens. I have the Canon FD 70-200mm for this camera and it's pretty amazing. You lose auto focus feature and OSS, but manual focus mounted on a tripod and it's good to go :D

Looks like a good deal if u want the lens.
Yes body on it's own is £1500 so you are getting the lens for £350 instead of £729, saving £379.
The lens is well reviewed on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003ZSHNEK
The trade in is good also as you will get another £150 given to you on top of what you would get normally.
I think the review of the lens on Ken Rockwell's site does not rate it that highly.
"It is a sharp lens that is very comparable to professional lenses such as Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II, yielding great results throughout its focal range".https://photographylife.com/reviews/nikon-24-120mm-f4g-vr

'Problem' with the lens is that for pro wedding / portrait photographers it does'nt go down to 2.8 but in compensation it has a very good range. So its value second hand is always going to be a bit less than a 2.8 lens.

It depends what type of photographer you are and what situations it will be used in. But its still a very good price.

No - because it will have spent most of it's life inside a cabinet.. pulled out couple of times a week and a few shutter releases if that - whereas I've put 500 pics on one of these in one session (I do own this model Joseph it's very good!)

I'm a little confused by the branding - what exactly gives this "Arftificial Intellingence" or makes it the 'thinking' person's case of choice?!?! Seems very bog-standard to me!

Think Tank is quite possibly the best brand of camera bag, there is a limitless warranty and certainly the professionals choice. Think Tank is the brand, Artificial Intelligence is the Line/Model.

1950s actually, well many people like retro, its all taste.
In this case its not retro, it really is using the same rangefinder mechanism.
It is hand made, expensive and extremely accurate, probably contributing to around £2,000 of the cost.

Leica is certainly a mixture of hand made jewellery, workflow and results. The first two are important, as in why people buy an Omega over a Citizen watch ... Some people never would but its individual taste + means !!

In terms of the A7(r), if I said it was the best interchangeable camera ever made, no doubt I would be flamed, but it is IMHO



Edited By: colonel on Nov 19, 2013 11:58
Not very stylish something that is stuck in the 1970's
The new Sony A7 and A7r is probably a better camera in every measureable way and has full compatibility with Leica lenses and cost a 3rd of this.

Same price at Wilkinson cameras anyway.
I'm deadly serious (_;)
If I had the money I would buy .... Seriously

Not really fair to compare with random China/HK-based ebay sellers, though. Firstly, there's a chance of VAT/duty, secondly, based on experience, I'd estimate a ~20% chance that it won't turn up at all, and you'll end up going through the PayPal dispute process.

The length comment was a joke.

You're not wrong there...
The length comment was a joke.
RadicalJack72
suitable for amateurs wanting more length..... :)

Extension tubes don't give you more length I'm afraid, they reduce the minimum focusing distance of a lens allowing you to increase the maximum magnification. If people are looking for more length then you should consider teleconverters, not extension tubes.

I had a 16-85mm and was very happy with it for 3 years, then it hit the ground and broke. I got a secondhand 18-105mm a bit cheaper than this, to tide me over. It's a quarter the price of the 16-85mm but its not a quarter as good, it's simply almost as good.

I have a bog standard Nikon AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6GIs this lens the same performance wise but with some extra zoom? Or will I get better quality images/faster speeds with this?
It is a much better lens than the standard 18-55 kit lens. The filter ring size is 67 instead of 52mm so it gathers more light .Its speed is similar.

I guess it may let in a bit more light but the aperature range is similar to the 18-55; maybe the 105 at focal lenth 55 has a max aperature of nearer 4.5 rather 5.6 of the 18-55 at focal length 55..

You will get similar performance, but the added bonus of 105mm at the telephoto end, almost doubling your current zoom capability.

You also get some nice sharpness across it's range

On the -ve side, you get barrel distortion at the wide end and pincushion at the zoom end. I've read plenty of mixed reviews, but mostly positive from the perspective of a regular amateur.

BUT for the price, there is nothing better for this range of zoom. as others have said, there are better zooms, but they are pricey or shorter, and I wanted longer, the 18-55 is too short for me.

Harrison cameras have been around quite a while, and the shop is great if you can visit.
Good price for the camera and Harrisons are a Nikon Pro dealer, so they will reigster your purchase with Nikon and you will get a 2nd year warranty free (As well as some vouchers for money off).
Great price for a UK camera. I paid that from Panamoz and mine's a grey import (not that I care).

Possibly worth paying the 30 quid extra on the Panasonic FZ200 that has a 2.8 aperture throughout its entire zoom, now that would be useful. Just think how much you would pay for this lens alone for a DSLR
Never thought I'd see a Leica on HUKD, even if this one is essentially a Panasonic DMC-FZ150.

I believe firmware hacks ar only available for Canon cameras (mainly Powershots). I don't know of any hacks for Panasonic or Nikon.

For compact cameras, the name 'Leica' (same for 'Rollei' and 'Minox') is used by mainly continental distributors to sell re-badged Panasonic and Fuji compact cameras under their label. Sometimes the firmware is slightly different but you won't get technically better photos/videos over those sold under the original brand name. If you read tests on the varies continental web sites, you'll find there is no difference between the models, e.g.Leica or Panasonic equivalent. It's all in the mind, but this can still influence the outcome of your photographs. If you believe you have a better camera, you might put more effort in taking your shots and end up with better photos/videos. This would be the real difference.

Thanks for this.

Your point is well made. In the Cola wars Pepsi used an NMR scanner to view subject brain activity. People's pleasure centre lit up when they saw the logo of their favorite brand, regardless of the cola they drank! Vision like taste is massively subjective so the 'Leica' (same for 'Rollei' and 'Minox') fans will "see" better photos and pay more for these "brands"

Agreed the mod scene for Nikon is embryonic (http://nikonhacker.com/), Its a shame that other manufacturers do not open up their cameras as the change allow more capabilties and sometime better quality: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv_YyP-HJcU&feature=related. One nice feature of the Canon's is the custom firmware can be removed by taking the battery out to return to stock firmware. I'm sure Canon have benefitted in terms of sales due to Magic Lantern and other custom firmware.

The only hack I've seen on the Panasonic is for the GH1 with ptools. "With PTool, you can up the video bitrate of the GH1 from a pedestrian 20Mbit to 32MBit in AVCHD. If you opt for Motion JPEG (MJPEG), you can shoot at an astonishing 50 Mbit/sec at a full 1080p. " taken from http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/06/how-to-hack-panasonic-gh1-to-shoot-super-high-quality-24p-video-and-more/

I've noticed the number of SLRs and bridge cameras that can shoot full HD has increased, to meet the demand. The 600D with kit lens 18-55 EFS IS II and "starter kit" is now £375 from a UK retailer in London inc VAT but delivery is £25!

There is some alternate firmware for Canon SLRs, I think some of the Panasonics and Nikon, Not sure if this model has other firmware.
Most of the firmware from the enthusiast seems to work well and add real value.

http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/Magic_Lantern_Firmware_Wiki
http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK

Its worth noting that the resale value of the Leica should be more than the equivalent Panasonic, I'd expect this gap to become larger as the Camera gets old as Leica is perceived as a well made Germany Camera. Even though these roll of the same line and are flashed with different firmware and a red dot.

BTW the Lumix LX7 also available as a Leica might be worth a look at around 360-380 on Amazon.

There is a lot of choice now in this segment of the market.

Heat added as this is the best price I've seen for this Leica!

When Nikon sort out AF for video shooting, I'll sell my Canon.
I've heard that the canon is v good at video recording but since I have 3 lenses which are nikon and new to video shooting Im not sure what Im looking at for quality? heres a test vid of the 5100 AF anyway - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCbAnLbJv24

Why would you buy this over a D3200? Having real trouble deciding!

Main reasons would be:
Build quality
Built in AF motor for older AF lenses
Bigger brighter viewfinder

Image quality especially in low light will be better on the new D3200, plus a 24mp image allows for excellent cropping potential.


For anyone else commenting in photo threads:
Lens does not have an 'e' on the end.

Nice - though personally after long long consideration/research I went for the d5100 (when it was at £385). If you couldn't get the d5100 anywhere near £385 I would go for this for sure, was a very close choice.

Was that just the body at £385? Where from?

Body only - was on HUKD including that £50 cashback making it £385 :)

Just wanted to check that I didn't miss out on any good deals.

I've just bought a 600D. Not as good as Nikon when it comes to pictures (not far off), but far superior video.

I concur the D90 feels better and is semi-pro, but on the d5100 I couldn't resist the tilt screen, 1080p video and simply because its lighter and better low light condition pictures.

If it was like for like in price I would get D90, but since I got it at difference of £70-80 I could use that for another lense (af-s 50mm).
If I knew I was going into professional photography 100% i might of bought the D90, but then again if I was very sure I may have just stepped it up and got a D7000.
At the end of the day both D90 and D5100 are great, if you want that final icing on cake you'll need to look at specific user requirements to decide between the two. Portability and versatility are quite high on my list, 5100 topped that.

shlunk - I had a go on the 3100 not the 3200 but imo thats a very beginners camera, very limited settings and things to play (I even felt the 5100 was a little limiting compared to the d90, but acceptable imo)

Harrisons have been around for donkeys years!! I bought a camera and a couple of lenses from them, long before the internet became the norm for aquiring kit for a lot of us who are photographers. They are an independant photographic store based in Yorkshire.

I also remember that the postcode was S2 4LR which I found quite amusing :{

Having clicked onto this thread after reading the latest MasterCheif / Elton Chong / Boothy **** match over in Misc, I really was not expecting a post like that. You're a good man, Tarryboy. And kudos to Eden and Afroy, too.


Ditto. There's so much plain rudeness on this site sometimes that this just affirms that the majority of the human race are capable of decent behaviour. Nice to see.:3

:I am an entry level to this game of DSLR. I have borrowed a 450D and loved the capability. My wife is starting a make-up business and I need to be able to shoot good facial images and also wedding / party / occasion shots. I have been told that the 50D is the right camera for this. Any thoughts? I would appreciate any useful advice. Thanks in advance.


The lens will make more of a difference than any consumer body that you buy. If you're new to dSLRs, I'd advise against diving into weddings for a *long* long while - after all it's one of several peoples' most important days, and there is a *lot* to get right. Even down to things like bringing at least 2 camera bodies, in case one malfunctions. Etc etc....

That's not to put you off starting out though - everyone has to start somewhere! Any recent dSLR - I'd say the 450D or above (and especially the 550D and onwards), would do absolutely everything you need for now. An external flash unit for facial shots and a good, wide aperture lens, like the 17-50mm Tamron f/2.8 or Canon 17-55mm if you can afford it, and you'll have the equipment to get some cracking pictures.

Hope that helps

Should get mine tomorrow. Can't wait to get it on my GH1. Pretty tempted to sell my 14-45mm lens now and go for the 45-200mm.
I just called them and they offered the lower price of £225 so am very happy.

Given what is going on in Japan there may well be shortages of goods made there for some time.
Price now gone up to £249 + postage so not so good now! Happened just as I added it to the basket!
Good price for a good lens! (OK it would be nicer if it were priced at £180 but we can but dream on!)
