That is a good deal, as you say, the f2 lens is £179. Now, do I need another camera....

A bit of a strange deal IMO. 15-45 mm already includes 22mm in it's range so the 22mm lens is more or less redundant. I wouldn't recommend this deal for that alone. Sorry, but cold from me.

It's not always about range, the 22mm is a prime lens with much lower aperture (faster in low light)

Any deals on just the lens? I don't want a whole other camera!

£30 cashback on the lens also.

It's good deal if the pancake lens is useful to you, otherwise it's aounrd £80 - 100 on eBay.

on par with the amazon £229 m10 deal.

Not sure where you get £80-£100 from, cheapest I can see for a new lens on eBay is £159.

OK might pay to look out if you are after one - £99 would be a good price. It's a well reviewed lens and suits the camera size well.

since the pancake lens is a bundle in this deal, I assume that if you re-sell it on eBay, it has to go into 'used' or 'new other' category, then you look into its sold history, you will find the effective price range for the this lens.
IMO £80 -100 is the price you are looking for to buy or sell on eBay.

That's why i said it's good deal if you want to keep the lens and make use of it, and it's on par with £229 amazon bundle if you don't want the 22m lens because you spent less and got what you really need, you avoided the possible ebay selling hassle, also it's not hard to find a 'like new' one on eBay for around £100 if you decide to get one in the future.

to add: it's a good deal if you are after the white colour, same price. but i will double check if the bundled pancake lens is also in white colour because the picture on its website isn't, quite urgly tho if it isn't.

Looks like a nice bit of kit. Not sure if you could get Jessops to price match (they sell the second lens separately), plus if you have an Amex another £50 off, or multiple of £50 for each £150 spend toward it if they split the transactions in store at the till - hotukdeals.com/dea…130

The 22mm f/2 is a near-perfect lens, streets ahead of the kit and almost worth buying an EOS-Mx in itself.

Good value for money, but the poor performance when it comes to moving subjects is a deal breaker for me. The only csc camera at the cheaper end of the scale that seems to tick that box is the Sony A6300 but that's way more money.

what does the a6300 have specifically over the a6000/a5100 for moving targets?

Agree, I would keep the superb 22mm f2 prime and sell the zoom.

I was referring to a new one with warranty - cheapest you can buy a new one for (currently) is £159.

why did you sell it so low? seems 99 is the lowest and they can get higher

The 22mm lens is excellent (got mine for £65 on ebay a while back). I'd get the camera just for that lens.

Jessops won't price match the bundle. I've asked ...

Original Poster

Amazon's price has gone up to £280 for the M10 + 15-45 mm. Only £49 more now for the 22mm F2 as well.

the camera with the 15-45 mm lens is on for 299 on very, you can get £50 back if you BNPL through very plus £30 through canon making the price £220. good deal if someone is looking to spend a little less

​I hindsight maybe I should have sold it for more but I generally sell stuff for what I think is a fair price. I also sold my EOS-M for £179 with an unused Eos lens adaptor.

​The warranty would only be valid if purchased from an authorised seller on a UK lens. Canon wouldn't honour the warranty on an eBay purchase from a non authorised seller.

You are quite right, which is probably why it's a bit cheaper than elsewhere.

Would this be any good for a newbies first "proper camera"?

I've been waiting for the Lumix DMC-FZ200 to come back into stock but times running out

Depends on what you are looking to take photos of?
The FZ200 is still available and is a good camera for telephoto work with it's 600m f2.8 lens. The M10 is great as it has a APS-C size sensor (much larger than the FZ200) and has changable lenses which you can purchase as required. If you want to learn about photography then one of the Fuji's (such at the X-T10) would be an excellent choice as it has seperate aperture and shutter controls, allowing you to see the results in the viewfinder, without taking your hands off the camera.
