Why is this camera so much cheaper than the a100? Is there a problem with it or something?
£234 is a crazy price.
#3
Very Hot!
#4
nowt wrong wit it! http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/read_opinions.asp?prodkey=sony_dslra200

the A200 is a slight upgrade of the previous A100 at a lower price point, the reason it's so cheap is the stock is 'due in' on 23/06/08, they cannot guarantee you will get one and hundreds of other people will not be before you on the list!

two questions. 1) the image from the email makes no mention of a lens, are you sure this isn't for the body only? 2) assuming the deal is for the camera with lens how does anyone who hasn't received the email get this deal?
#7
lens is included! it's not the best in it's class but a hot price. I'd personally go for the D40 for £247 at Dixons. It's the shutter noise of Sony and Pentax which puts me (and my subject) off.
#8
Excellent deal but I the price on the site is still £283.98.

I assume Dabs have not updated the pricing yet.

The link takes us to a page where the lens is listed in the description.

The price has now been removed completely, so watch this space for the new price.

"Not available for sale" now

let us know if ya get it, thnks!
#17
Also ordered one. Here's hoping.
#18
was going get pcworld to match the price, but can't find a store that has one in stock :(
going to see if jessops will price match the price instead ;)
#19
I don't think Jessops will match online anymore, but it's worth a go. I've ordered one of these, and have fingers crossed...

edit: it has vanished from the site now, not sure if that's good or bad...
#20
just tried jessops in nex oxford street..no joy :(
tried another camera shop and they couldn't match it :(

tried a couple of shops in tottham court road... no joy
almost got one shop match the price..
but when they checked online the price was back to normal? :oops:

checking the dabs site now and the camera isn't even listed :(
only the a350 and a700 :(

so i can't even order one from dabs now :(
#21
My order now says "stock problem" and "obsoleted product" on the camera, so it may not be any better for those of us who ordered one. Anyone had better luck?
#22
'tis odd. Dabs upped the price to £283 earlier today. Annoying as I was going to order. That said, it's now removed from their site altogether. Mis-price maybe? Take it off sale before relisting it at the £283 price which would be on par with other retailers right now.

Mine says exactly the same :-(

A200 price has been ramped down pretty aggressively over the last few weeks and I see Amazon.co.uk no longer stock it. Seems sony was stock clearing them out.

Hey ho, back to the search for a first DSLR. The real p155er is I've already ordered a compact flash card to go with it :x

Amazon do still stock it, but apparently are out until 27/6. Maybe dabs will come good in a week or so...

I've just had an email saying stock is now expected on 30/06/08, we'll see what happens then.
#26
That's interesting, I spoke to someone on the live chat system this morning who told me that they couldn't get them from the supplier, so there would be no more stock. I haven't cancelled the order yet though, I'm holding on to that glimmer of hope!

edit: They're back people! £235.64, but possibly without the kit lens? It's not really clear.

The next twist in this saga... I've just had an email saying that they don't have the stock to fill the order. However...

"We understand that this may come as a disappointment you, so as a goodwill gesture we can offer you the Sony DSLRA200 A200 Camera (without the lens) at just £206.99 which equates to our cost price. The current dabs.com sell price for this model is £235.64. "

That seems like a pretty damn good deal. Especially since the kit lens isn't much good by all accounts!

Just got a PC World price-match on this with an additional 10%. Might be worth a go if your local has stock?
#29
With a kit lens? That's insane, I'm on my way tomorrow!
#30
What would you go for? this Sony or the Nikon D40?
#31
I just rang PC world and got one too!

They checked dabs, but it was out of stock. I told them I had one in my basket and 'I must have got the last one' ;-)

She fell for it so I got it for £235.12 delivered. :thumbsup:

I am not an expert, but have been researching this myself for a couple of weeks. Both are great cameras by all accounts. The Nikon cashback deal (£30) means that the D40 is generally slightly cheaper (although not as cheap as this A200 deal!). Feature-wise the A200 has the edge, especially with in body image stabilisation (meaning you don't have to buy expensive stabilised lenses), but I've read reports from people who say the image quality in the D40 is marginally better. However, the D40 is quite restricted with the lenses it can use with auto-focus. At the end of the day, the most important thing is to try them both out and see which one feels nicer to use for you- I don't think you can go far wrong with either really.

Also, price match with PC World confirmed! I've ordered one for £227 delivered! Bargain of the year?
#33
Bllcks.

Just tried this and was refused on the basis it'sout of stock at Dabs. Bah.
#34
Tried on the phone too - wouldn't price match as out of stock. You guys got lucky, chap said he's had a few people asking about this model too today
#35
Well, I think dabs are due to get more stock on these on Monday, so maybe try then? This all comes about because the price on the dabs site is body only, but isn't clear on that fact. I have confirmed this with dabs. But if PC world are prepared to price match, who are we to argue?
#36
Can get this at Dixons for £257 delivered after 3% Quidco so not too different to the Dabs price.

Thing is, none of the PC Worlds near me have any in stock anyway so I wouldn't be able to price match Dabs at all.

PC World have it in stock for delivery (from the same warehouse as Dixons, of course).

Not sure whether to wait for Monday and try the price match again or go for the Dixons price.

Have to make a decision as I'll have to send the CF cards i ordered back if I don't go for it.
#38
Showing as stock in 3-4 days now.

Unsure if to go for the A200 or A300 which has Live View but is £399
