How much wider is this lens compared to what you get on the 18-55mm kit lens?

TK42
Same price at John Lewis but better customer service from Amazon.

Not in stock at JL unfortunately. Might be different in store?

You'd get an extra years warranty at JL. I find them better than Amazon.


Have known JL not to honour the price advertised on their website. Same scenario with Amazon and no excuses were made at all. they were happy to sell at the price advertised. No cancelling orders or making excuses about my card not passing security checks etc.

Yes, try to have your mobile attached to windscreen in hot weather on long journeys and it will melt/fail (sooner or later) - where proper sat nav for people who drive a lot is a lot better option.

Not true buddy. I have Garmin 3598 LMT-D for 3 years now and it is great, but hate these wires all over the place and to take it off and put on again on. Left once on windscreen, so some douche smashed window and tried to steal...
Where the phone keeps nice and cool on phone holder , which goes directly into CD slot.

If anyone is interested, it turns out that the Amazfit uses a Sony chipset, a worlds first using FD-SOI, thus making the power sapping GPS in this watch frustratingly awful for power consumption. Seems to me that all our power sapping GPS units are now rendered semi-obsolete.

No heart rate monitor and about 4 hours battery using the GPS.
So, this chunky item or the Amazfit for £84 with a 30 hour battery when the GPS and the HRM are turned, 5 days with GPS off.

Android Wear is simply too power hungry. Who really wants another gadget to charge every night?


that is a fair opinion. reading reviews about best waterproof ability of smart watches put this at number 1 so that was why I was interested but point taken about battery life

If you have a 4k tv why would you buy a blu ray player?? waste of tech

Because there are hardly any 4K Blu Ray discs available.

But I agree with other comments that a decent 4K TV will do a far better upscaling job than this cheap player.

Voted hot as this is a good price for a good lens, but as a dx user, it's not for me.
(Also I don't use Currys)
You can still use it on Nikon DX. It will be fully functional on all Nikon DX and FX models.
Perhaps they mean it's a less useful range for a crop sensor. 36mm is very tight for a "wide" end.

anyone know a good Nikon lens for closeups for cars
Depends what you want it for.
Is it for advertising, where you need pristine images, or for sales like Autotrader, or just personal interest?
What do you mean by closeups? Do you want to get in close to the car badges or is it for full car images?
Also, is it for cars you can physically get close to, or will you be at a distance for something like racing cars?
And is it for full frame or crop sensor?

This is hot, but I'm waiting for news on the price and quality of the soon to be released Sigma Art 2.8 24-70.
What sort of price are you expecting?

I really don't know, some of the recent Art lenses areally more expensive than the Canon equivalent. I thought it might be £700-800 to compete with the Tamron but now think they might charge £1000 to beat the Canon.
Canons cash back process is perfect , really quick as well. Something other companies should copy.

Wow - just looked at their product range - Diverse, to say the least!

They are almost certainly selling 'grey', so doesn't ultimately matter whether you buy from them, or one of the large, and well respected Hong Kong / Singapore shippers. Panamoz have an outstanding reputation (they've had a lot of my money!) and have a 3 year-warranty with service, if needed, from Canon UK. They are selling this kit for £854. I have also had excellent service from e-infinity, and their price is £755. Read their reviews on Trustpilot; you will see why I have confidence in them. Also ship from within UK, and UK return address.

General question about this retailer - does anyone have experience ordering, say a DSLR camera from these folks?

They have some quite low prices, but I'm wary of customs charges on bigger ticket items. Any first hand experiences with their warranty? I've read reviews from trustpilot etc, but it would be useful to hear first hand from HUKD folk.

I have a d3200 that I would love to upgrade to a d5500/7200 (if I had the £).

Lens wise I had the 18-55 but it broke (dropped) so I got a great 18-105 from eBay.

Would like the 50mm or the 35mm (reviews above are good!) but neither are on the cashback list are they?

I got my missus a d5500 really want to get the 50mm but have seen second hand they can go for more than new. Can't find a bargain one anywhere. she has the kit lens vr ii. A Tamron 70-300 I think but wants to take portraits mostly. Can anyone recommend where to get one I used flubit on amazon and the price wasn't too bad
I got my 35mm at e-infinity online (also my camera) - Its presumably grey import as it was a lot cheaper - delivery was prompt though and from within the EU and I'm pretty sure there wasn't any problems when I registered for my camera warranty.

Hi. Which lens are best for close up images of a baby / toddler, to go with my Nikon D3200. Thanks

For a first lens I'd agree with the 35mm F1.8. This has the same effect as a 50mm on a DX camera like yours. Best price for a Nikon UK copy is about £150 delivered.

http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/Nikon/Nikon-DX-Lenses/Nikon-AF-S-35mm-f1.8-G-DX-Lens

It would be cheaper through grey market suppliers, or ebay, but you won't get the Nikon UK guarantee.

I use a Nikon D5500, a similar weight camera. I also have the Nikon 50mm 1.4G (£350), a better portrait lens but you need more space to use it indoors (need to stand further from subject ) and it's longer and heavier to carry about.


The nikon 50 1.4 is probably the worse 50mm made in the last 15 years


I bought the d5500 for my wife but am looking for the 50mm 1.8g for her to take portrait pictures and same they hold the money so well so annoying flubit on amazon came back with a good price

I'm looking for a good deal on a bridge camera for the wife who wants to take better pictures than the point and click we have. Anyone know of a an alternative to this if this isn't great at this price point?

Or... is this exactly what I'm looking for?


Sony DSCH400 is 10 times the camera for twice the price. I wouldn't buy anything without an evf.
iRomek
so let's clear a few things up:
- 20MP (that's a very good size sensor)
- 28x OPTICAL zoom (this is much better than any phone camera can do)
- Optical stabalizer (again very rare on phones, and not as good due to size limitations)
- Lens size (this is very simple... the bigger the lense the more light it lets in and the better the picture. This lense is massive compared to any dinky little phone lense, and you will see much higher quality pictures)
- 4 frames a second burst is very good if you need it
- 112mm wide angle is handy
- 720p recordings is very good and what I usually record anyway


alll for only £99.99... yeah it's hot.


The physical size of the sensor is the important factor, not the number of pixels. The one in this camera is more than a 6x crop on a full frame sensor, so you will get very noisy results, but at least there's an optical zoom and focal length advantage over a smart phone.

Would this be any good for taking sports photographs? Looking for something cheap!!


The biggest issue with this for sports shots is the lack of a viewfinder. You'll find it almost impossible to frame an action photo successfully using the screen, particularly in bright sunlight.

Price is £379 now so looks like my hesitation has cost me on both the JL and Jesops deals :-(

Guess time to expire the deal! thanks for the heat people. I gather this deal does pop up from time to time. Re: your previous post, I think this would have been ideal for your trip (albeit a telephoto zoom lens would have been better for wildlife). Amazon have the 1300d with the 18-55mm stabilised lens for £289 (with a 1-2 month order wait) and you can pick up a new 55-250mm zoom lens on the bay new for about £80+. I'm sure, however, another deal will pop up before your trip though! Good luck.

Hi, I'm looking for a bit of camera advice and hoping somebody with a lot more knowledge than me can offer some help. I'm considering purchasing a DSLR camera having previously had some Point and Shoot budget models. I'm just not sure that the DSLR route is the right route for my requirements. In the main we'd be using it for holiday snaps, special occassions i.e. birthday's and weddings. We're also heading to the German Alps in June and wouldn't mind taking some scenery shots. I also like taking pictures of wildlife etc. Would this Canon package allow me to at least dip my toe into DSLR photography or am I likley to be disappointed with what it can deliver and find myself hacving to shell out on appropriate lenses foir my requirements? Any other advice would be most welcome. Thanks

Sorry being a bit thick, do either/both of the lens's have image stabilisation?
+ EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DC III Lens
+ EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens
Neither lens has IS. There are slightly more expensive models of 18-55 that do have it but not this one.

Thanks, I've decided that focus speed and burst mode are not great on this for my needs. Bargain though.

Better than Nikon d3300?
D3300 has a higher spec..http://www.cameracomparisonreview.com/2016/03/11/canon-1300dt6-vs-nikon-d3300/
D3300 is better no doubt.
Better low light
Better kit lens
Better focusing system
Better dynamic range
More megapixels
Better value, at least at normal prices.
And before any canon fanboys come back at me, I use both canon and Nikon and I would recommend the Nikon every time, at least at this price range.
thats an answer to a faulty question though
sure the d3300 is a better base camera but the question is comparing this deal to a camera, not a camera to a camera or deal to a deal
its about tradeoffs and price is one
you want to go cheap then go canon, you want the equivalent nikons cheap versatile setup (50,wide,standard,long zooms) then you need to pay much more making the comparison moot


Someone asked which was better, and the D3300 is better! Obviously pound for pound then it takes more considering, and this deal is better then what Nikon are offering at the moment, but I would not recommend this camera to anyone.

Can get a 75-300 lens instead of the 50 for another £20 here
I know very little about lenses but the JL one is f1.8 and the Currys is f/3.5-5.6. Is one of these better or are they able to produce markedly different results? Looking for a decent little DSLR to take on holiday to USA and not sure which to go for. Will be taking shots of national parks and general scenery, but I'd also like to be able to play with shallow depth of field so the f1.8 one would be better for that right? Whereas the 300mm would be better for long distance and scenery? Sorry I'm pretty useless with this.

If buying cheap lenses, always go for prime is my advice! The zoom lenses will give significantly worse results and in low light can be terrible.


If you are starting out then you should aim to find your feet with a standard lens. Fine for general use. Once you get to know you camera and figure out what you are shooting majority of the time then tailor your next purchase. For example, a good quality prime later on like the gent suggests.

Otherwise you will be deciding on expensive purchases too soon. some people prefer and get on better with point and shoot compact cameras (versatility/portability) so might be wasting money. Or like me, it could become a slippery slope with lenses craving that beautiful bokeh :)

How does this work with pets?
You have to buy the pet friendly PIRs as I have.
BTW the touch panel is a PITA and If I had to buy again I would go for the Cellular dialing version with a buttoned control panel.http://www.screwfix.com/p/yale-wireless-premium-gsm-burglar-alarm-kit/8612g
I've been looking for a GSM version for a while now as I didn't want to wire the control box (which I intend to store in hallway closet) to BT line and make it messy with wires etc. However someone recently mentioned to just store the control box under the sofa in living room which is next to the tel line - makes sense lol BUT would I need to access the control panel to activate/deactivate etc? Should I buy a GSM or not? Is £200 a decent price?

Well I suppose you could hide it and then buy the remote to activate/deactivate it. You would still need to have a power supply and telephone line connected to the box though but you would probably be better off just mounting it on the wall or in a cupboard. As for this or the GSM version I'd definitely chose the GSM and use a GiffGaff sim in it.

Just curious - do these DIY type alarms actually deter burglars?


My tired eyes read "does it detect burgers"
As per comment further up you can get a key fob remote (£16 on Amazon) and you can also get an additional wireless keypad if you prefer. So with these yes you could stash the panel under the sofa. There's a tamper switch on it though so you'd just need to keep the backplate attached to it.

I have a 3300 and I purchased a little plug in for £34 and I can do all the things that the 3400 does
Currys have the D3300 for £319 with the latest AF-P lens or £339 with the AF-P VR lens.

The non-VR (AF-P) lens is very sharp, I would'nt be too fussed about VR on a lens this size, it's more important for telephoto work.
If you Google for "difference d3300 d3400" you will see that there is hardly any difference between the two. Agros has the D3300 with the non-VR lens for £339 or £359 with VR lens. I don't know if the code applies. Personally I would prefer the D3300 with VR lens to D3400 with non-VR. I don't see any better prices on the camerapricebuster website.

Nice price but no image stabilisation. So, telephoto lens without image stabiliser is a no-go nowadays.
Actually thats not strictly true as faster shutter will overcome that. Tripod mount it and use a shutter trigger, stabilisation sorted.
Dont disagree but thats why its cheap. One has to carry the tripod if planning to take distance shots. On free hand, image stabilisation has its advantage.

I carry a wee tripod with my camera bag when I'm off for a trott, it clips nicely on to it.

Nearly twice the price of the ops and I wouldn't be buying from that company (5.6/10 trustpilot) in any case so likely to be quite a bit more from a legitimate source
I have many £100s worth of goods from them (eglobal) and IF you want MORE for your money the 70-300mm vr lens is [l believe] better value

Not a great lens but nice for the price.


I bought this lens last month and it's very good for the price. It does lack image stabilisation but so does every other lens in this price range. The savings compared to other lenses easily fund a tripod or if you are a novice like me take lots of shots and pick the best.


Yeah, I just crank up the ISO to fuel a high shutter speed. No one on social media is going to cry about the noise.

Awful awful company to deal with, avoid at all costs
Agree, I tried to order a lumix lens from eglobal, they were on offer and it was the best price I could find. 2 days later I received an email stating my order had been cancelled, they claimed their stock was damaged and they didn't know when they would be getting more.. I checked the website and the price of the lens had increased dramatically. They were just fobbing me off

I was going to buy the Canon 80D from there a few weeks back, as it came with the 18-135mm IS USM lens for £915.99 which was a much better price compared with buying the camera and lens separately from different websites. I also checked out their store on eBay and found the Canon 80D (Body Only) was listed for appoximately the same price as it was on the main website, which gave me the idea of buying the 80D and 18-135mm from here instead as it would include the eBay Buyer Protection and insured delivery at no additional expense.

Since the camera/lens kit was not in stock on the eBay store, I sent them a message asking whether they'd be listing it anytime soon. I received a message back the following day stating that the camera/lens kit would be added to their eBay store in addition to the main website on the 21st Janurary, for the same amount of £915.99, and advised me to wait until it became available. I waited until Saturday 21st as stated in the message, but when I checked on this date the camera was not listed on the eBay store despite what had been promised. So I decided it would be a lot less hassle to just order from the main website, however when I returned to the main website the price had increased to £949.99 which was an entire £45.00 more expensive!

If I was going down the grey route, I'd personally spend the £50 more from Panamoz - they're very clear on how their sellers warranty works, whereas eGlobal aren't (liable to long repair times & shipping costs...)

I've had one of these for almost a year now - very impressed with it - it's well built, with no wobble when full extended and the quality is good. It replaced my 18-55 kit lens and my 50-200mm. It performs as well as either of them.

Incidentally, it was around £170 last spring, when I bought it.
£149 at e-Infinity.com,.... :{
I just got home from Argos with this and am pleased so far. Auto focus is a bit slow in low light, compared with my Nikon lenses, but the build quality and overall feel are good. Certainly very happy for the money!
innocent_leo
Can this lense be used with any other camera?
This version is for Nikon F-mount, and is designed for cameras with APS-C sensors, such as the D3200 that I use.

Looks rather similar to the lens i paid 500 or 550 for a fair few years back. Quality.. Not there best but no zoom looked this will be.. 6.3 cuts light a fair bit.
However this is amazing values. Truly absolutely looks Anh amazing price for that flexibility.... Nice spot

TStop is usually higher for all the lenses than the FStop, but in this case it's different. So in reality it's 5.7 instead of 6.3 - https://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Tamron/Tamron-18-200mm-F35-63-Di-II-VC-Model-B018-Nikon . Probably not that anyone cares about this :)

I think they mean the packaging is damaged rather than the product itself. I've had warehouse deals before and the box has been ruined. the item has been fine.
A scratch over an inch long on the front glass element will affect the final image, especially when shooting against or into the light. Depending how deep the scratch is, I would'nt chance it IMHO.

Can anyone tell me if this would be a good lens for taking photos of a mannequin in a home studio?


If you are short on space like me this might be a good option as the 50mm wont get full body shots, I have an old ef28mm and a ultra wide angle for this.
No. It would offer you something totally different. a wider angle view, but it's nowhere near as fast at f2.8 vs the 50mm f1.8.
thanks for your replies guys. I already have a 50mm lens, would this one offer me much more over that?
Love my 24mm lens - probably the one I use the most in my kit!

Portability is one benefit, but the main thing for this over any kit lens is the sheer improvement in sharpness and image quality!

is this good for close ups i am a complete novice and own a 600d
Depends on how close. You can get closer than true macro 1:1 with tubes.

p.s JL price matched the latest price by another refund of £50 today after an email to them
my point with this deal was not to say it was the cheapest 24-70 2.8 on the market. it is not.

my point was to say that if you are in the market for this specific lens, (after doing all the research on other alternatives), from a reputable UK dealer, then I could not find it cheaper elsewhere.

it is unfair to vote cold because tamron is cheaper. they may produce similar results in some opinions, but simplt put it is not the same item. you are not comparing apples for apples.

Edited By: magicmagicj on Jan 24, 2017 08:38: .
I have this lens, prefer it to most of my other kit. Build quality is amazing and I doubt the Tamron comes close in that regard. However this is not that good a deal. Mine was £1269 2 years ago, prior to the VR release. Even then that had cash back available too to make it cheaper.
Yes I know the delorean is out of banana skins but a superseded item shouldn't get dearer.
Also the VR is a larger lens, 24-70mm focal ranges typically won't benefit from VR that much but can be handy.

Tamron version with VC is better for half price of this..
Agreed.
I got Tamron 24-70 VC for £540 from Amazon a while back. I've tried this Nikon lens as well. Quality is very similar, except this doesn't have a VR (this is an older, discontinued version of 24-70, so voted cold). If I had to choose between Tamron 24-70 VC and Nikon 24-70 VR I would definitely go for Tamron, as the quality is very very similar and price wise is 2-3 times cheaper.
for those of you who think the results of this Nikon and the tamron are the same.... they are not.
the Nikon is pin sharp at f2.8 whilst the tamron is not... above f5.6 the lenses produce similar results.
the tamron will be fine for an amateur but if you need a reliable lens to give you sharpness all apertures you have to go for he Nikon, whether it's this non vr or the more exp vr version.

No offence but that's just a load of tosh, great example of many side by side tests here and difference in lenses nothing like you are suggesting

http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Nikon_vs_Tamron_24-70mm_comparison/


the choice ultimately is up to the user and their budget. from what I saw on that link, all the photos of actual scenes and not test cards, showed that the Nikon lens produced a sharper pic than the tamron.

sometimes you don't get an opportunity to reshoot a photo (I do mostly reportage) and hence my choice is the Nikon.

the tamron will be fine for an amateur but if you need a reliable lens to give you sharpness all apertures you have to go for he Nikon, whether it's this non vr or the more exp vr version.

No offence but that's just a load of tosh, great example of many side by side tests here and difference in lenses nothing like you are suggesting

Thanks OP ordered the lens , now just need to buy the camera lol Looking to buy one but I missed the cashback boat on them... Will eos750d / 760d be good combo?
Yes it'll work a treat with 750D/760D. Both have Canon's latest AF system, so it'll be a wonderfully fast combo.
"Wonderfully fast"? When talking about lenses, the general consensus regarding "fast" glass is in relation to the maximum aperture, which means this is anything but fast. I had a Sigma superzoom for my first Canon a few years back and liked it as my first lens, but was way happier with the "fast" lens that replaces it - a Tamron 17-50 F/2.8 VC which I bought used for around this price.
Great price IF they honour it. Seems like it might be a miss price - good look for those who order one - fingers crossed.
fast in terms of glass is aperture but this is a fast combo of camera and glass as a system so nothing to do with aperture and obviously a performance indicator

compared to?
10-22
dxomark says they are virtually identical in terms of sharpness, mainly just the 10-22 has a bit better range and costs at least twice as much
Benchmarking tools can only tell you so much- When it comes to deciding what has better image quality, the best thing you can do is actually look at images. Both lenses are sharp when stopped down, but the 10-18mm is noticeably sharper wide open throughout their shared range. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=950&Camera=963&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=271&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0
looking at that link - its sharper at 10-12, softer at 14, pretty much the same at the others and no 18+ on the 10-18
overall its so close as to be irrelevant

10-22 is a difficult choice now. It does have proper ring USM and it's slightly faster too, but frankly that and the extra 4mm just can't outweigh the price difference. it's not particularly sharp either.

Which is better this or Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM Lens :|?


I would buy the f2.0 any day.
MrRee
The Camera matters MUCH less than the Lens attached to it .....

I would recommend looking at Canon Lenses from the 1980's as these tend to be better, with metal mounts and - in some cases - near L Glass quality ..... at a fraction of the cost.


i think you have rose tinted glasses. ;)

There is a single example of a metal mount lens that was replaced with a plastic mount version. Other than the mount and the lower price it performed the same. Even that has once again been superceded by another metal mount version that's got a much better focusing system. Progress is all positive in the Canon world. Even the EF-S lenses are now excellent lenses and very, very cheap.Not built to last but for the amateur light user they are completely adequate, and a third the price of the older lenses that they now outperform.

Totally with you on the L lenses though, they are excellent and get better with each new one that's designed.
