Man the Canons have been getting cheaper and cheaper, yet the Nikons keep going up in price. Gutted.

no way... the 500d was released at way too high a price point and Canon soon realised and dropped it down to a more realistic figure.

The high end Canons are still at an all time high!

Plus £8 delivery

Dont know much about camerabox as a company.

This is the best price available of the more better known websites (ie amazon, currys, jessops etc).

Can be had for £582.60 if you buy it at Dixons Tax Free at the airport.

Still, I'm not quite sure whether the new features of this camera (mainly abilitiy to shoot video + better LCD screen) justify a price tag c. £150 higher than that of a 450D.

would personally go for this deal
better camera and lens, most reviews are in favour for the nikon d5000
amazon.co.uk/exe…sim
still waiting for the d90 to come down slightly before i buy one

Thats a great deal on duty free if you are passing by, I wanted to get used to the camera before my holiday so i got it now.

The Nikon's LCD screen is inferior as is its megapixels, also doesnt record videos in HD, but great moveable LCD screen. I prefer the canon though.

Yeah but have you seen the prices of motor lenses to fit a Nikon D5000? Canon fit motor lenses areabout the same price as Nikon fit non-motor lenses. What a swizz!

Camerabox check the review's on google ..... from my experiance i'll never go there again

Great Camera, I'm very impressed with it!

You can retro fit any old Nikon lens though...

But they won't autofocus.

Ended up buying the eos 40d kit from currys for £778 including bag and 8gb card . Tried the e0s 500d but found the grip a bit uncomfortable due to it's size. focusing seemed a bit faster with the 40d and felt solidly built . By the way nikon are doing a £50 cash back deal for the d5000, which is similar to the 500d and currys have it for £629 not including the cashback. Was waiting for the d90 but the eos was just too tempting. :thumbsup:
