Very good price for the kit you get, there is a 600D coming out soon but that is exactly the same specs except it has a swivel LCD, but under the hood there is no major change...

If you hate Dixons, then try procamerashop.co.uk/pro…197 at 578GBP, slightly cheaper but had no experience purchasing with them.

or Amazon has it for 604GBP, (amazon.co.uk/Can…1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298125321&sr=8-1)

Either way great deals for this set...

The Canon EOS 550D Digital SLR Camera + EF-S 18-55mm Zoom Lens offers a level of functionality which is sure to help you and your photography grow!

Some of the highlights of this great-value 18 mp camera and lens include an advanced iFCL metering System with a 63-zone dual-metering sensor, Full HD video recording with manual control and selectable frame rates, a Quick Control screen, and continuous 3.7 fps shooting.

In terms of specs its not different is it? Apart from the swivel LCD (which seems pretty useful) but if it costs 300gbp more... I don;t knw if thats worth it...

Meant as a joke but on a serious note why would you need 18MP unless you wanted to blow up the image to cover up whole of UK!

I kept looking at 18-135mm for some reason... my bad... still 200quids for swivel LCD? I personally don't see it being a massive feature.. depends on what you use it for.. May be wait for 600D to drop in price (as it will), but then its not yet released, so its gonna be a long wait...

My 500D is only 15mp, but I find it very useful for agressive cropping. I like to frame my subjects pretty loose and then decide how to frame them at my leisure.

I bought this camera from comet using a 7% discount code (7600 but I think it's expired now) which brought the price down to £585. Slightly more expensive but I'd rather deal with a high street store than an Internet only site. It's my 1st DSLR and I'm very impressed. I still have a lot to learn and the camera is far more capable than me but it's very user friendly. Low light photos are superb.

At the end of the day, whatever you but will soon be superseded by a newer model.

This camera is no longer in stock at Dixons but Amazon have it for this price.

Now at £589.98!!
