I know this still isn't as cheap as the 15MP 500D (with IS lens) will get, but it's getting tempting now...

Amazon have price-matched to £474 (the price you'd pay from Argos with a delivery charge). But you could get 1.5% Quidco cashback on the Argos delivery price.

Official blurb:

The Canon EOS 500D digital SLR camera is a semi-professional camera with a large 3in LCD panel, and includes an EF-S 18-55mm image stabilised lens and 15.1 megapixels for stunning detail.

Isn't that the price for a "refurbished" camera? If so, I'd rather spend £50 more on a new one.

-28 degrees. Brilliant.

Presumably there are loads of cheaper prices out there then? Apart from the refurbed link already posted?

There's a new deal on today for a Canon 550 with lens for £524. From what I've read the 550 is well worth the extra. So neutral on this deal. Also in most reviews the Canon 500D lost out to the Nikon D5000 which you should be able to pick up for about the same price as this deal from Currys or less from lesser known suppliers.

(After reading the comparisons between the D5000 and the 500D I went for the D5000 and found it to be excellent. The flip out screen is very useful, and according to the reviews Nikon's image processing is better than Canon's so you get better images despite there being slightly fewer megapixels.)

This clearly dreadful deal is now expired. Back to £539.99 at Argos, and the cheapest now seems to be £499.99.

this website is full of people saying there is a deal x with price y without actually sayign where!!!! Infact i can't see a better price for a 500D anywhere unless I go refurb.
