Found 15th Dec 2016
Absolutely cracking price for a Canon 80D after cashback. Cheapest I've seen that's not from a grey importer.

I'd get in quick as these Argos deals seem to come and go pretty quickly.

Same price at Currys & Amazon (out of stock). John Lewis is out of stock at higher price .

This might be a good deal, but going forward, I would recommend to get a mirorless camera over DSLR.
(I didn't vote cold/hot for this deal though).

Horses for courses. For somebody who has already invested in Canon lens and accessories, it's not eay to go mirrorless. And people with big hands like me might prefer the feel of traditional DSLR rather than a mirrorless.

For sure if you already have lots of lens, surely it make sense or you can try to sell it out. I had about 5 canon lenses a few years back, sold all of them and re-invest all in Sony A7 and lenses, never look back though.

For average people, I don't handling on smaller body is an issue though, unless you are like over 6ft9 then maybe a different story...

Why because of the smaller size?

Don't these bigger dslr have better quality than a mirrorless?

I'm assuming this is far better quality pics than then canon eos m3 that was available recently.

Mirrorless camera these days have sensor size from 1" and all the way to full frame sensors. They are not only has smaller and lighter body but also has on par image quality if not better than those DSLR. of coz one can still argue DSLR has slightly faster autofocus and longer battery life, but there are also others benefit that the mirrorless has only. Perhaps you should go research more about mirrorless camera.

A good video from a year ago that compares between the 2 types: youtu.be/bYW…e0g

And a year later today, mirrorless has improved even better in terms of autofocus and lens selections, not to mention all other mirrorless exclusive features too.

For me, if u don't already has a lot of DSLR lenses, don't need to shoot in events, is highly recommend for mirrorless...

I must be kind unusual as I have just sold my Sony A6000 and bought a kit version of the Canon EOS 80D with a 18-135 lens. Loving it so far and whilst it certainly isn't as small as the Sony A6000 I do prefer it for my needs and large clumsy hands.

Lenses are much cheaper as well

I own both mirrorless and DSLR and I still end up returning to the DSLR when quality really matters or when you need to be able to tweak the configuration. Laws of physics help the DSLR with the larger glass - it's not all about sensor size, the glass has to get the image to the sensor first. Even though I still use the mirrorless for 75% of my photos, when I know I'm taking 'snaps' - especially for it's practicality, I still find the DSLR has a place when outright image quality is important and that's for a DSLR a couple of generations older than the mirrorless.

For me I came from a Sony A6000 to a Canon 80D and overall it has been a great move. Sure the Sony was a good camera for me but, and this has pleasantly surprised me, I feel that the size of the Canon tha tI would have felt would have been a real issue has been a benefit.
I do like how it feels and handles. I like the menus, which I find much easier to navigate and use than the A6000. I love the fully articulating touch screen.
I got some good photos from my A6000 with the kit lens, a Sigma 19mm and a Sony 50mm 1.8. But it has surprised me how much more responsive the focussing system is on the Canon when in low light than it was on the Sony.

As yet I find little to regret buying the Canon, although I'm having some minor issues with third party flashes, and whilst I would not take it on holiday I didn't do that with the A6000 either.
