Nikon Cashback is back on the D60.

As stephenashforth and publicnme pointed out you can add another item and then use the XMAS20 code to get £20 off. For example you can get the Sandisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC card (which is £20) free!

Alternatively you can buy the D60 with a second lens and receive £50 cashback.

Cashback details here:
http://www.nikon.co.uk/sites/cashback/summer2008_buy.html

Don't forget possible 6% quidco (excluding VAT) - works out at a healthy £14.85 but read on in the thread below as it's not guaranteed...

PS: The Jessops discount codes don't apply to DSLRs unfortunately (but do apply if you add an accessory).

Superb buy. This is a good step up from the D40. Ifyo have £400 to spend on a dslr then I wuld buy this, sell the lens on ebay and buy the Sigma 18-200mm OS (optical stabilizer) on ebay for just over £200.

That combination will be better than anything else you can get near the price.

In fact Jessops sold me the Sigma 18-200mm OS for £200 when I bought the D40 for a friend. So you may be able to get the same deal.

The standard zoom lens this comes with is fine. You would be better off keeping this until you can afford the Nikon 18-200. The Sigma does not come near this for quality and struggles to focus at longer focal lengths in anything but bright light. The Nikon 55-200VR (about £130) is a cheaper alternative to complement the standard zoom.

Just to say that the Jessops codes e.g. XMAS20 do work with DSLR cameras if you add an accessory to your basket. This is an ideal way to get a cheap SD card for example.

any news on cashbacks for d40??

Good Price...

Any reviews?

Any Jessops vouchers?

Also - if I buy online but collect in-store - do I still get Quidco?

Is it worth paying an extra £30 for the VR 18-55?

XMAS20 will work with this provided you buy an accessory with it e.g. memory card

Yes, quidco should be fine. Mine is validated and should be paid in January, I hope.

If you add a memory card that is under £20, it's effectively free. Worth adding to the OP. For example:

Sandisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC Memory Card

Nikon D60 + AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Lens

This has got absolutely nothing to do with this thread :whistling: but I was thinking of getting the Panasonic Lumix FZ28 Black instead of this. Can anyone advise? Has anyone got one?
#17
Just bought it with the 'VR' variant lens at £329.99 - bought an 8GB Ultra II SD card (priced £24.99) but used voucher to get for £4.99

So hopefully after cashback will be under £300 and then hopefully quidco will work even though I am gonna collect in store tomorrow.
Does anyone know if I have to do anything for quidco to prove I went into the shop and bought the blighter - or does it happen automatically?

I am also likely to get the FZ28. Generally excellent reviews. My brother bought an FZ18 earlier in the year and is very pleased with it. Just need to find one at the best price!!!!

DSLR junkies may poo-poo the bridge cameras, but I think they have their place.

I don't understand why all the obsession with Jessops. Have you tried Calumet or Jacobs? Most of the times they have better deals than jessops. jessops should be cheaper because they sell more, but still keeping prices up.

I totally agree, it amazes me the amount of people that ask these questions when they are on the internet and have a plethora of search engines to find information on practically anything. Friends always wonder why I can be knowledgeable on a variety of things, and it all boils down to one thing : I use my initiative, I read up on whatever on google...its not rocket science! :thumbsup:

I've used a nikon coolpix s3 for a couple of years, and have been pleased with the pics, but I've decided now to get a dslr. Can anybody let me know in there opinion, for around the £270 mark, which is a better camera, this nikon d60 + 18-55 lens kit or Sony Alpha A200 + 18-70mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens?

Thanks in advance for any comments!:)
#25
Maybe they were asking for personal reviews by people on here who actually have one?

Anyway, my thruppence is that I've still not got my cashback from nikon from buying a D40 in June....theiving gits.

There is not a lot to seperate those 2 cameras but the A200 is not a good deal @ £270 considering it has been around the £190 - £240 mark plenty of times recently.

Buy the best your budget allows and you are comfortable using e.g. go into a shop and get them in your hands, have a play, then of course buy at the best price (likely online but not always.) And as websearcher said read some reviews on google (dpreview is good but verrrry long and technical although you can skip some of the pages with graphs and things on if you like, as I did!) :)

Superb buy. This is a good step up from the D40. .


Can't wait to hear your explanation why........:whistling:

From dpreview...

...The D60 takes the successful formula established in the D40 / D40X and, well, if we're being honest, doesn't do a great deal with it at all

Sounds like you know what you're talking about :roll:

Is there an obsession with Jessops? I agree their prices are usually steep but ususually in this case they are the cheapest.

Agree - I'm a noobie looking for a 1st DSLR too. The Nikon comes with a 2yrs guarantee the Sony 1yr. According to the 2x camera shops I've been into, Nikon have the best reliability rate - they don't often see faulty returns. The only other advise I was given is that he Nikon is marginally easier to use. Picture results are comparable. Canon cameras are apparently overpriced at the moment, considering the price of these entry level machine, they're relying on the name to shift units.

I was going to go for the Sony A200 - but the lack of live view is putting me off - that's being spoilt by compact digitals for you - I don't think the Nikon has this either, but am willing to be corrected. Both seem to be about the same build quality and roughly the same size/weight.

Go and have a play is the best advise; try Jessops or John Lewis - not Currys - the former try to employ people who actually know something about the cameras.
#31
The D60 does not have 'live view' but you won't miss it. I bought this camera a few weeks ago and that was one of my concerns having used compact digitals for several years but you soon get used to it.
The camera is superb. I bought the 18-55 VR lens and picture quality is excellent. I was previously using an Olympus SP 510, I would definitely recommend an SLR over a compact 'super zoom', picture quality is superior and it's so much faster - the D60 takes it's first picture in a split second, and is far quicker to autofocus and take further photos. The viewfinder does not go blank as you take each picture making it far better for action work.
#32
I bought a D40 recently, having also been used to compact cameras with live view, and like Nektar above I don't miss it. Infact it's much better to look through the viewfinder as you can see more detail than on the screen, plus background light isn't a problem. Also it just makes it feel more like using a proper camera :)
#33
Looks like cracking deal to me!!!!

cheers

NO QUIDCO ON THIS

quidco mentions that the discount is exclusive of SLR Cameras
#35
Thanks. Strangely it only tells you after you've logged in which is why I missed it. You could try topcashback, who are offering 6% cashback from 11am-3pm today. It doesn't mention DSLRs being excluded but just look at it as a bonus if it does come through.

Edit: Actually quidco might work as some people have suggested above that it has tracked. Also, if you buy an accessory and use the code it may not register as a DSLR sale, so it's more likely to work.
#36
It might give you the cashback on the accessory surely which is barely about a pound or so but yes that would still be fair enough.

I think it would be wiser to wait a bit more as Nikon is on the plan to reduce this further like it did to sell out the D40s .
These are just promotional sales to get them out of the market to promote the D90 n newer brands. So i am just gonna wait till xmas and I am pretty sure we would have a better deal like last month when the D40 went for about £200 with the lens and a memory card
#37
The Nikon and Sony are both good cameras. Hold them in your hand before buying though. As others have said, I don't miss Live View since going DSLR at all. To me that's a non issue. People like to buy in Jessops as there is more likely to be a shop nearby so they can take it back if there are problems, and to check the gear out in the first place. I would pay a bit extra for that. In this case they are cheaper too! :thumbsup:

Nikon EXPEED Processor, from the D3 and D300 (handy if you want to do HDR shots etc) plus self cleaning sensor, so it does add functionality, although from reading around quite a bit, i think you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference on well lighted shots and you can add a VR lens to a D40 so that's handy

Quidco works fine. The note you mention refers to the various discount codes which do not work if you only buy a DSLR camera. Provided you buy an accessory they do. In this case use XMAS20 to get £20 off.
