Ok, so here is how it worked for me.
Go through topcashback website
http://www.quidco.com/amazon#description - or try -
https://www.quidco.com/visit-prep/4412/None/no-cashback/voucher/5435
now close that pop up, after copying the code, and you should be redirected to Amazon now add the camera to your Amazon.
Continue the ordering process and check that the code is working for you!
Also, be sure to use the VAT cashback offer from sony - bringing the price down to £340.64
VAT will be given back off of the full price of the sale I believe. Otherwise it's £348.09.

"SNYNEX5O" is an amazon code (not Quidco), so anyone can get it, no need to register with Quidco.

Go directly to amazon (link below) and follow the instructions on the site:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000469513&tag=quidcocom-21

I could make a new post with the direct link to amazon if you don't want to change your post. This would make it available for people who don't want to get involved with Quidco, or are using Topcashback instead (like me). It is actually an amazon offer, Quidco is just taking the credit for it in your post.

The net price for this NEX5, after reclaiming V.A.T. from Sony, is £348.03 (not including possible Quidco/TCB)

Let me know what you think.

Excellent deal, just what I was waiting for!!! Thanks.

I've opted for the one with the extra lens which still qualifies for the vat back...although a bit of a swizz because the black is £549 and the code doesn't work but the silver is £581 but the £50 comes off. Paying £30 more to get £50 off but at least I get the Vat back making it £451 or there abouts.

You're very welcome!
It finally made me decide to buy it after a very long time of looking!

It did work for me with the Black, but only tried it on the single lens! Hoping to find a deal on some more lens/adapters. Best I can find is just under £100 for the 16mm lens... the search goes on!

This deal was posted before - although the Silver body was the cheapest then

Ordered the black twin lens kit from Best Buy earlier in the week but stupidly cancelled because my Quidco didn't track. Tried re-ordering last night (with 15% Quidco) about 6 times but all unsuccessful. Now out of stock again.

Just with I'd bought from Jacobs on Friday when they were doing the black twin kit for £499 before any cashbacks.

Can't understand why Amazon haven't included the black twin lens kit in their £50 voucher offer. I tried using it Friday but obviously it wouldn't work.

Best Buy are doing the Nex-5 with both lenses for £549.99 with 10% TCB and VAT back. Brings the price down to around £413.

You obviously didn't read my above post fully. This weekend Quidco is 15% for Best Buy. Yes it's the best deal - IF Quidco or TBC comes off. You'll see that it's not tracking for most people at the moment.

Most importantly - It's out of stock! And when it occasionally comes back into stock (like late last night), I'm unable to buy it for some reason - goes through the whole payment, verified by Visa, etc but just says order cannot be processed at this time. It's not a credit card problem - I've spoken to the issuers. I've just given up with Best Buy.

The Best Buy Nex-5 thread is here:

Neither Quidco nor topcashback offer cashback at Amazon so better to go through a Nectar link instead and collect over 1200 Nectar points (triple points atm) worth about 6 quid. Every little helps and all that!

Good point on the Nectar Points! I merely listed what worked for me, I followed a link through to TopCashBack, got the code, then off to Amazon.
The OH will kill me for missing out on yet another store card opportunity though!
#13
God I want one of these but can't decide on this or the dual lens deal.
#14
I cancelled the best-buy order today and ordered for dual lens from Amazon. Quidco failed to track best-buy purchase.
#15
This may sound like a stupid question but can this zoom much? I know it isn't listed because of the lens itself but I don't know much about cameras. My TZ5 has 10x optical zoom, how would this compare?

18mm-55mm is equivalent to around 3x zoom.
#17
You can add lenses with higher zoom levels - though it's not cheap!!

has anyone seen a case for this camera that can let you leave the flash attached while in the case?

Haven't seen any specifically for leaving the flash on, but there are lots of cases out there.
Best bet might be to take your camera into a shop to try out the cases with camera and flash.

The biggest from Sony that I've seen is the 18mm - 200mm lens

Received the Camera today, but printed invoice has VAT on total - £50. Online order summary still has VAT on total, and net - £50 as final total.

Not a big deal but £7.45 is lost :(
