Cheapest I've seen on the net.

I rang a local store to check if deal extended there too - it does! Total saving from Jessops is about 70 quid but the kit is only £20 more expensive than the single lens kit on Amazon.

-----------------
The Nikon D5000 is small in size, yet big on performance. Its versatility and simplicity, plus the ability to record full high definition (HD) movies, makes it an extremely popular digital SLR camera.

This terrific kit represents incredible value at an affordable price, as it includes an 18-55mm lens to bring the best out of this DSLR camera.

Superbly detailed images can be enlarged considerably without any reduction in image quality, thanks to the D5000’s 12.3 megapixel sensor.

The inclusion of an 18-55mm VR lens brings distant subjects into clear focus and incorporates Vibration Reduction (VR) technology to eliminate camera shake. When teamed with the NIKON D5000’s impressive high ISO range of 200-3200, faster shutter speeds reduce the risk of blurred images when shooting moving subjects and enables clearer photos to be taken in low light.

Live View mode allows image composition using the LCD screen, with four auto focus modes ensuring sharp results: face priority, wide area, normal area and subject tracking for pin-sharp clarity across the frame. These are backed up by the D5000’s Multi-CAM100 11-point AF (autofocus) system.

The clever features don’t stop there, as Nikon has also included its Scene Recognition System in the D-5000, which optimises exposure, autofocus and white balance just before the shutter is released, delivering precise settings in a wide range of light conditions, whether you’re photographing an up-close portrait or a sweeping distant landscape.

In fact, the awkward conditions sunny days can cause present no problems for this camera, thanks to the EXPEED image processing system which reproduces the details in areas of highlight and shadow to give a truer view of what the human eye can see.

Picture Controls allow the look and mood of photos or D-Movie clips to be pre-determined, with six settings to choose from: standard, vivid, neutral, monochrome, portrait and landscape.

The D5000 includes 19 different Scene Modes to take the guesswork out of tricky photo situations by automatically adjusting the Picture Controls for the best-possible results.

Images are kept blemish-free, thanks to the Nikon D-5000’s Image Sensor Cleaning and Airflow Control systems’ ability to keep dust away from the camera’s image sensors.

The Nikon D 5000 features a large, vary-angle 2.7” LCD screen for easy framing and review of images. Editing photographs on the camera’s screen is also possible thanks to the Retouch Menu which offers a range of effects, including perspective control, soft focus and colour outline.

Hi nathan30098,
I've just popped the retailer & price info into the title, so that it can be seen in text view, which is used by many members, for browsing.
Thanks for posting.
Best regards, Chesso

Excellent bundle price but the 55-200mm is around £150 not £200

The D3100 is a slightly newer version of this, but I think the D5000 holds up well in IQ to it.
Also, you get the tiltable LCD which the D3100 doesn't and ability to use the remote control for the shutter.

D5000 single lens kit has also been going for a higher price than the D3100

Thanks Chesso!
You're welcome; I've added an image as well. :D

Nice lenses - they are the ones I've got.

Good camera, slightly old in the Nikon line up (D3000, D3100 and D7000 have come out since) but still a good camera. These kit lenses aren't superb and don't hold that much value (you can't really split them and sell them on because nobody really wants them). Most people would be happiest with something like a 18-200mm lens but these aren't cheap.

I'd probably suggest looking at bodies and lenses separately. A slightly-used D5000 and a slightly used Tamron (et al) 18-200mm lens would probably cost a similar amount (if not slightly less) and make you a much happier person.

I've been searching for a used D5000 and they're not going for any reasonable amounts.
Also, Nikon include 2yrs manufacturing warranty with this kit.
The lenses supplied are far superior to a Tamron Super zoom, that'll incur pin cushioning and slower speeds.
The D5000 also incorporates the same sensor as the £1000+ D300.
It'll also have less noise than the D3100.
Anyway, bought it this weekend to upgrade my old Nikon DSLR, so thanks for the deal!

Should have got more heat and the offer is still on I see.
#9
What would be a good price to sell a used d5000 for?
#10
I hate myself for missing the D7000 for something like 699 in Birmingham's Vision exhibition. :(

Trying to calm myself that it's not the body but the lens that is responsible for quality nowadays.

Fantastic deal - but just for you to be aware that it is rumoured that the D5100 will be released in the next month or so

Ken Rockwell reckons the Nikon kit lenses are superb. Somthing that can't be said for the Sigma & Tamron 18-200's.

You can buy the D90 instead with the 18-105 lens for £675 here:

Or the 550D is a very good camera too, and the difference with the 600D are not that big:

Hmmmm, I'm not entirely convinced about Ken Rockwell's impartiality - apart from his review of the D3000, he generally seems to reckon the sun shines out of Nikon's backside and that they are vastly better than every other camera manufacturer on the planet. I've never has a Nikon SLR myself, so I don't know, he may be right, but his views very often aren't backed up by other reviewers.

Good deal! Heat added

It's true that the D5000 has been out for nearly two years and will likely be replaced soon by the D5100, but for most people's requirements it's still a good camera.

I bought one recently and am very happy with it so far.

isn't this a clearance model?

AFAIK, Nikon has stopped doing D5000's

Yes, the D5000 was discontinued in January. http://nikonrumors.com/2011/01/07/nikon-d5000-rip-officially-discontinued-by-nikon.aspx
For some reason, about 99% of people posting on that site were happy about this. No idea why, I think this camera is great.
