As the title suggests this is for a new Canon EOS 500D with kit lens for £709.98

It seems like a good deal for a new model dslr from Canon.

Hope it benefits someone - it's still too expensive for me but I think it's a good price for this model from a reputable dealer.

Good spot. I've found it even cheaper (£679.95) at Simply Electronics but I've never used them before.

That's a £130 drop. They are Verified By VISA so should be ok? Heat added.

in hindsight, camera box and others may not be canon authorised dealers and the items would be grey imports, giving warranty issues

£709.98 minus £679.95 = minus £130? Eh?:thinking:

Shouldn't it be a difference of £30.03?

Next cheapest to Amazon are £809 according to camerapricebuster

Fox81 is right. A lot of these internet retailers buy in grey imports and do't use authorised dealers. By all means save some money, but forget about the security of a warranty.

I was going to get a450D including 2 lenses & extras for £579, hmm maybe i;ll wait if the prices are dropping.

no reviews yet

i just ordered one from amazon. now i just have to work out a decent lens

camera arrived today. so far so good

Excellent news fox81. I'd be glad to hear your thoughts on it as I keep trying to talk myself into buying one.

im not a d-slr expert, but i went for the 500d over the 450d because of the digic4 processor, 15megapixels and HD video.
