Just popped into Sony Centre Tunbridge Wells to find this absolute beast of a bargain! This is half price from the overblown Sony RRP of £679.99. Other photography stock was 50% off too so some additional decently priced stuff, although it's only a small shop so the range is not great (various compacts, the NEX-3 kits and the A380 with 18-55mm are other items I recall). If you wanted to guess the prices of those take the Sony RRPs and halve them

Definately NOT ONLINE, but I have no idea if it's store specific or nationwide. Good luck!

EDIT: INSTORE AT TUNBRIDGE WELLS ONLY

Instore only so no

awesome price, considering its £355 on play.com with just the 18-55m lens. the lens on their own cost in the hundreds.

head added, should get hot, but most people won't understand what is being offered

I really wanted to buy one but don't use my actual DSLR enough as it is so didn't. Plus in the end it's still £340 out of the ol' bank account

you can bring up specfic sony store prices on the internet, although how up to date they are is questionable. the Tunbridge Wells store online has them marked at full price still (£679.99). I have tried a few so far and none seem to be any different, so may be just instore or just that store

Does anyone know how I find the details of this store please? Might stop in on my way through

wow bargain

The NEX-5 and 3 are good cameras offering the photographic quality and lens changeability of DSLR's with the size of a compact. It does not just stop there and they can be used as camcorders too. Alas not for me, they are not ergonomic enough and odd looking but if you don't mind the looks and have eight fingers on each hand they are ideal!

Amazing price, heat added. Is this new stock or ex display?

may only be strore specific

Just rang the trafford centre. No dice.

Must be store specific? Trafford Centre want £600 for one with a 18-55mm lens

well can you start getting out the 340 price tags then!!...well be your friends

that is amazing... I paid £450 for the same thing before xmas (with VAT back and an Amazon discount code) and I thought I was getting a good deal!

You could almost certainly make a decent profit on that price. The 16mm pancake lens usually goes for around £140-150 on eBay these days... do that and you've practically halved the price!

for anyone wondering about the quality, here's a little video I made with mine recently (trip to HK/Bangkok):

if we knock them down to that price ill buy one myself, and flog the 16mm, would be such a steal, an outrageous deal really.. i said this in another thread but recently sony released/sold (not sure which) the rights for other companies to manufacture E mount lenses which means there should hopefully be a much more competetive array of telephoto and prime lens that can autofocus

we are hoever running a couple of other cameras at the 50% thing.. might enquire about the nex5 see what strings we can pull..

They open sourced it and said there would be no licencing cost, needed really, but they need to do the same for the Alpha mount (and ideally have some way to switch between the two) as the Sony glass is expensive and not as good compared to the legacy Minolta Dynax series glass, even on the lens speed (standard 50mm prime was f1.7 on Minolta glass and f1.8 on Sony) and quality with exception of the top notch stuff the older lenses are better IMO (got a new 18-55mm and an old 75-300mm beercan)

It is awful! I HATE it!

It is taking me to the Sony Centre tomorrow to see about this camera!

It is a brilliant video by the way, well done!

Nice quality. I would have thought it would shoot in colour for that money though.

it is store specific,i rung tunbridge wells first this this morning and the bloke i spoke with confirmed they are on offer and store specific. 'just to try my luck i rung leeds store soon afterwards and the bloke i spoke with was surprised to hear about it and insist that tunbridge wells might have been mistaken with the price.

Freezing cold.

Unless you live near Tunbridge Wells.

I just phoned Tunbridge Wells and try odrer by phone for delivery but they can`t do it
but the price is correct! they told me that my store is in glasgow but I said that they are the only ones with this price and they where suprised

just called store in Glasgow and best price they can do for it is 599

Just to update I popped into Tunbridge Wells today & they still have the NEX-5 with 18-55mm at half price (£224.99), which is still a pretty fine deal in it's own right. Plus a whole line up of Sony compacts as half price too.

Just been to Swindon town centre and the Sony store is closing down - missed the bargains argh!
