Seeing the lens cost £105, the camera buy itself is not a better deal.

prices with cashback
Camera £456
Camera with lens £539

the 18-55 is an ok lens , many just prefer to buy the body on it's own and buy better (faster) lenses, such as the tamron 17-50mm or 50mm 1.8 . As for £100 for the 18-55 is imho well overpriced and can be had from forum sites ( talkphotography ) almost new for half that

if you're going to buy this camera then buy the body and put the money to a better peice of glass than the 18-55

Thank you for taking the time to participate on the forums. The price has been amended as the listed deal price should be the price you have to actual pay the retailer to purchase the item before any retrospective discounts/cashbacks are applied, thanks again.

go to the canon website, or its linked on the product page on amazon. You fill in a form with camera details, and receipt and freepost it to them, and you get a cheque for £30 from them

As you point out, Amazon has now dropped the price to £539.60. I took delivery of mine yesterday, having paid £569.99. But, credit to Amazon, having contacted them this morning (on their "live chat" facility) they've agreed to refund the difference (and I've had an email confirming this too). Quality service from Amazon. And a brilliant camera from what I've seen so far...

I'd have bought the 600D at this price.
