Great price if you bought the 199 EOS-M deal from Argos
Very nice lens for a daily usage

From China so potential customs +£8 royal mail fee

Added to the 199 argos deal equates to a great twin lens kit.

Hi, off subject a little but looking for some advice from anyone who knows about cameras and lenses. I bought a Canon EOS 1100D about a year ago which came with a basic 18-55mm lense. I'd like to purchase a decent lense for mostly capturing close up photos of my kids and holiday snaps but am unsure what I should purchase. I'd like it to be fairly flexible but offer something better that the standard lense I currently have but I dont really know what would be the best option?

Any suggestions from anybody who purchased a similar camera and lense and then progressed to something different would be warmly welcomed, and what the benefits were! thanks.

(nifty fifty)50mm 1.8 great for family portrait pictures with cracking depth of field.

Yep I agree nifty fifty or the 40mm if you can. I've been using the 40mm for shots of my new born.

I have both, prefer the photos from the 50mm, however the focus noise freaks out my little one so I tend to use the 40mm more.

Sorry to be such a pedantic bore, It's 'lens' not 'lense'.

Thanks for the input, I'll check out the 50mm 'lens' is it best to stick with a Canon lens?

Sorry if this is a daft question but if I already have a 18-55mm lens where does this differ? Can it not capture the same photos as 50mm?

The 50mm f1.8 is sharper and also allows you to take photos in lower light at the expense of depth of field, which is also a creative capability (blurry backgrounds in laymans terms)

If you are a green square user, then stick to the kit lens.

this deal is ongoing, please unexpired

Arrived super fast from China, very well packaged, very communicative trader. Package seemed to have attracted no customs or duties.

Anyone encountered customs charges with this? Generally everything I've had from that side of the world has been fine. America, on the other hand... Not so much... But worth asking?

Had no charges on mine. Was 'appropriately' labelled...
