Was looking at this the other day, good price, but not convinced I shouldn't get the 700D instead.

Similar, this is definitely a great starter camera but there's definite value in grabbing a 700D over it. That's what I'll be after,

If you can afford it, get the 700d. I bought that and bought my brother the 1200d.

1200d not a bad camera at all though, especially at 249. Also saw the jessops deal, I think the card and case are probably worth the extra £20.

That being said, I think the 750d is due for release soon, so might be worth waiting for that to get a better deal on the 700d.

Can't decide between this and a Nikon D3200.

is it VRII lens? if not, I am not very impressed. What is EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III Lens?

Are these any good for wedding photography?

Just ordered the Sony A5000 for £10 more. Partner previously used a bridge camera, so I thought a system camera would be a good transition to a DSLR. However, this seems a better deal, but is much bigger camera. I would appreciate people's views.

kkthomask the vrii lens is only for nikon cameras. the 1200d is a newer camera than the 3200, and I believe was one of the reasons the nikon 3200 got an upgraded stock lens. The lens supplied with the Canon isn't image stabilised but is a decent lens anyway. Both this and the 3200 have really good reviews as an entry level dslr.

i wouldn't bother using the sony as a transition, just go straight to it
but also recognise that you dont need to actually go right to a dslr as mirrorless cameras such as a5000 are basically equivalent

in most basic terms imo...
mirrorless (like the sony): smaller, less lenses
dslr: big, lots of lenses (both cheap and expensive)
