Update: Comet deal as posted is over - see post 11 for next best deal at Amazon.
Currently £320.94 at Comet (Cheapest price anywhere). Use code 5OFF to reduce price to £304.89. Use the free delivery option (or collect instore). Go through Quidco - tracks at £9.15.
Sony are offering a £50 cashback on this handycam at the moment. I phoned them today - this is valid on web orders. Cashback form download link on the Comet page.
This brings the Camcorder down to £254.89 (minus the Quidco cashback of £9.15 which gives you a final price of £245.74!).
I know the very similar spec Panny SD60 pips this slightly in the reviews, but at this price the Sony is terrific value - I've obviously ordered one.
Also this is the first batch of Sony's to be SD card compatible - a major plus in my opinion.
The 5OFF code EXPIRES TODAY - AUG 3rd, so you need to act quickly to get this price.
