It's unconfirmed if there is in fact the lens kit or just body only, as there is no item description, and it does not say in the item title.

Arogs did not sell the 450D kit, they only sold the body.

excellent price but lol @ RRP of £769.99. don't be silly!

Voted hot

was in argos clearance at stanley and they were stll asking 449 for this, very good price

is it just me, or is there no item description?

Also where does it say it come with 18-55mm lens?
if you look at argos' other ebay DSLRs if it comes with lens it says in the title, this one doesn't say in title. And if you look at argos, they only sell the 450D body.
argos.co.uk/sta…htm

update:

looks like item description is up now, doesn't confirm if it does come with the lens in the listing itself. But if you click on read rating link it goes to argos ratings for 450D with lens, so I guess it does come with lens.

Yeah don't forget these RRP's are taken from launch date - review gives it as "Thursday, 24 January 2008".

Great and hot price - but there are newer models at higher prices. You takes yer choice (_;)

I picked up this camera from them in January, it came with the 18-55mm and 55-250mm kit lenses at £490 (ish).

So this is a very good price for a decent camera. Only thing is the kit 18-55mm lens isn't brilliant and anyone other than a total novice will hit it's limits prity quickly. I'm a total notive and am already feeling that I could do with replacing it. The kit 55-250mm lens is much better (but obviously has different uses).

good price for a top camera.

I was about to say the same thing. This was one hell of a camera three years ago, and is still amazing today.

I bought mine in 2008 while I was in America on business for $699 (when you got almost two dollars to the pound 8)). Mine shipped with a 18-55mm lens (different from that shown above).

Highly recommended.

Heat.

Some of the Sony cameras are great, but as far as image quality and colour accuracy go, I still feel the hierarchy is * < Sony < Canon < Nikon

It's clearly shown with a lens, the item description has details of the lens and nowhere does it state 'body only'.

If it came without one it would be going straight back!

Maybe I'm being stupid but I opened the link and don't see an item description on the listing? I'd check with Argos first - unless someone has already confirmed that a lens is supplied.

Its NOT much of a deal without a lens.
If it hasn't, why's it still in your title ?

I want to get a 450d, but am in no hurry. Is it likely to come down further in price? This seems to be a good price - realistically this isn't gonna come down to under £200 over time is it?

The 450D is now almost a 3 year old model so the chances of it dropping dramatically in price is slim, it's more likely to disappear as stocks dry up.

Focal length 18-55mm" so have to be with Lens

OK, I'm going out on a limb here:

http://i56.tinypic.com/fxqnwx.jpg

Item (1) clearly states 'Camera', which to any sane person is a complete camera, capable of taking a photograph.

Item (2) clearly shows a picture of a camera with a huge lens.

Item (3) clearly states 'Lens' and even gives the lens focal length for clarification.

RRP:£769.99 !? lol I don't think so. You can have the 600D for this price.

nice-new

Do you really want to start that argument

I really dont know if this comes with the lens as argos generally use ebay to sell off the products they sell in store and they only sell this camera without the lens in store.

Argos Clerance Bargains have a 4 shops. Did you call to all 4?
In description it says
Lens:
Focal Lenght 18-55mm

The photo shows the camera with a lens, the description lists a lens so I have no reason to think it doesn't come with the lens included. I ordered one, this is a good deal and a great price.

Fingers crossed. My hubbys been harking on about making the step up to a SLR for a while.

Can any photography enthusiast give some tips in regards to good accessories (cases, lenses, batteries, filters etc) for a beginner and point me in the direction of a good resource to learn how to use this camera properly. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Bought my 550d for £420.00 the other day but this is a good deal as it's new.

not bad you could flog the lens for £50 on ebay and put the money towards something better

This one wont do video, right? That is a feature of the newer models only?

when it comes to slr's then there is only canon or nikon.
