Another Canon deal! Sorry I had to post it. The cheapest 50mm f1.8 STM is a great lens for portraits and low light shots( currently £96 on Amazon). Dual Pixel AF in Canon 200D is superior and wherever I look on the reviews, photographers names this camera as a best camera for beginners in 2017.

You getting in here free lens worth £92..

This seems be be a better bargain at John Lewis (includes two zoom lenses) for £549.99)

Though actually a 50mm lens rather than a 75-300mm zoom may be more useful

I spent a *long* time waiting to get the 200D, the problem with the JL deal is the 18-55mm Lens is the standard IS only and not STM, that may not bother all who are the target market, but it’s still an old tech lens which I don’t see any other retailer selling as a bundle.

The STM Lens is worth the extra IMHO. I managed to get the 200D with 18-55mm IS STM for £489 from Amazon - which makes it a cracking deal with the cashback. Have a 18-135mm IS STM Lens to pair this with, and plan to sell on the 18-55

Yep. 70-300mm Version III is crap. It is only usable at 70mm( check Christoffer Frost review on YT)

My choice would be the 50mm if it's any good anyway. A standard lens is much less of a compromise, likely to be better quality and I don't need longer zooms.
Currys are also offering a further £50 off with a DOUBLE50 code, making this £519 at the checkout. Then the Canon cashback gives another £50 off, lowering the price to £469.

Considering that the 50mm f/1.8 lens is worth having, if you take off a notional £96 for that it makes the 200D with the kit lens effectively £377, which seems a good price even if it isn't the best kit lens option.

If I didn't already have the older Canon 100D, as well as a 50mm f/1.8 lens, I'd definitely consider this offer. I'm mostly using a Canon EF-S 18-135 IS STM lens which I can recommend.

For those who don't already know, the 200D is designed to be compact for a DSLR camera, which is the reason I bought its predecessor.

I picked up a 100D with the 18-55mm kit lens from Currys earlier in the year for £221 (if memory serves) without battery or charger on the guarantee that if it didn't work when I added those that they'd refund it. i.e. not sold as seen
Picked up those and it was fine. Really, really nice camera for someone like me getting back into SLR photography. As you said really nice and light and small enough to sling in any bag.
Then added 55-250mm STM lens from an Amazon warehouse deal and got the Canon cashback on that so only paid about £110.

Would you be able to recommend the 50mm prime or perhaps the 24mm as my next step? I tend to do a lot of photographing of my kids, but more their candid responses to seeing things than staged shots.
Although saying that I got some wonderful shots with both my lenses in Australia this year. Probably far too many of the Sydney Harbour Bridge though. :-)

I'm not sure if I'm competent to make a recommendation, but... I have both the EFS 24mm f/2.8 STM lens and on oldish EF 50mm f/1.8. The 50mm will give you the reach for candid shots and also allow flashless photography, and is the lens I'd buy before the 24mm.

Cool, thanks for the info.
Order last night 568 - £50 instant cashback - £50 canon cashback.
Quick question if I may?

What's the difference the 18-55 mm f/3.5-f/5.6 DC lens as per the Currys deal or the 18-55mm IS STM as per Amazon? I am assuming the latter is newer and with STM, quieter?


The Currys one with both 18-55 lens and the 50mm STM works out at £518 before the Canon discount. To get the same bundle with Amazon would work out at £605 (£509 camera and 18-55 STM lens + £96 for the 50mm 1.8 STM lens). A difference of £87! My question is, is it worth it?
Thanks

I literally just read that there on a review site about the image stabilisation. That coupled with the quieter zooming, would that be a worthwhile investment or do I stick with the Currys offer? Excuse my ignorance but I'm just learning and don't want to buying something that might be noisy in recordings.

If you think about video I would go for cheapest camera Canon 650D and Zhiyun-Tech Crane. If just photography and video occasionally go for body only and Sigma OS 17-50mm f2.8.

Thanks for advice but lens a bit OTT for me as newbie. I have no doubt in its capability (after reading reviews) but starting out and learning the ropes I think I'd rather stick to the basic lenses for now. Cheers for your input tho, much appreciated.

If you are videoing I'd go for the STM with IS. STM for quiet and fast focusing while recording and IS...well...for the IS...unless you are going to be exclusively using a tripod...should make a world of difference to your recordings. The IS is useful for stills too as the lens itself isn't very fast (read longer shutter times and hence potential for blur...nothing to do with focus speed....you said you were still learning) The 50mm f1.8 is amazing value for money...it will allow you to be much more creative in your stills photography (and presumably video if you don't need to zoom) in terms of background blur...and, at higher f-stops, sharpness. This is regarded as the no-brainer lens...I got an earlier version and loved it.
