70-300mm Zoom lens (+6 items inc bag) £200 @ Jessops

Found 24th Sep 2009
Jessops are doing a zoom lens kit deal where you get the below 7 items for £200

The items are:
# A Tamron brand 70-300mm f4-5.6 (also does macro 1:2) (mine os for a canon but they have all camera models)
# A UV filter
# A DSLR bag (worth £50) has inner sections for camera and 2 lenses plus exterior pockets
# 8GB Ultra II SDHC card
# Lens pen
# SD card reader (USB)
# a photobook gift voucher for use in store

I thought this was a bargain being the lens alone is £169

If they tell you this is on new camera purchases only, ask for a manager as it goes through without a purchase when each item is scanned separately

missing from photo is a lens pen and photobook voucher

There is now way that bag is worth 50 quid.
Uv filter is a cheapie jessops job also.

The Tamron lens included is only really worth £100, its been sub £100 before, cheapest on a quick Google search is just over at the moment. I got the camera bag included in this deal free when I got a DSLR deal with them, it went on eBay for £7.96 as there were loads on at the time. I don't think the rest of the stuff is worth £80+ to make this deal worth it.

Have to agree, the lens is listed on camerpricebuster at Jacobs £123.99 with Free Postage using code SUNNYFREEPOST.

thanks for posting, but as others have stated, the lens is cheaper elsewhere, still leaving more than enough cash to get all items (if indeed you wanted to) for less than the £200 "offer " price

as for the bag, currys had xxl crumpler bags for £25 the other day

Crumpler Bags are quality I got the Jimmy Bo a few months ago and am very impressed.

Just ordered one , should just about fit the 40d with 70-200L, be a tight squeeze though. :thumbsup:
Handy for a walkabout bag, although one reviewer in America compares it to a Diaper Bag, bad times, lol.
Luckily we have a kid on the way. :whistling:

gotta love a crumpler (shrinkle owner)

Update on the 5500 xxl crumpler, it is too tight to fit the 40d and 70-200l for anyone thinking of buying one the bag is shaped so is too tight a fit for this setup, the wife's D60, kit lens and zoom resides in it instead. :thumbsup:
Using a Lowepro slingshot 200 AW which just does the job for the 40d and 70-200L.
