Cost of camera with 18-55mm VR lens is potentially £210.40:

Total price: £359.98
Less the bag: £338.39
Less the SD card: £325.19
Less the tripod: £314.80
Less Adobe Lightroom 4: £259.80
Less Nikon cashback: £224.80
Less Quidco cashback: £210.40

Of course this assumes that you'd buy all of the above, but as it's an entry level camera, and buyers are likely to be beginners, a bag, SD card and tripod would be essential kit!

Excellent price for the kit and a brilliant camera have some heat

Heat for the price but a shame it is from Dabs whose customer service has gone down the pan in recent years.

Just realised that this is the full version of Lightroom 4, not the upgrade version that I priced in above. This is currently £89.99 on Amazon, bringing the cost of the camera & lens to £175.40 :-).

That's a **** good deal. I'm fairly sceptical about SLR deals in general (since prices are so elastic) but for how good the D3100 is and the fact that almost all of the accessories in this package are actually useful, damn that's hot.

I would throw out the tripod, but the SD card, Lightroom 4, and even case are useful.

Nice little set. Heat.

Heat added. Thanks.

"Ordered upon request"???

Not sure I'd wanna risk that.
What say you guys, anyone done this b/4?

I have this camera and its very good and this deal looks excellent.

Arrived today - 4 days ahead of schedule. Everything in the bundle was present and correct and I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of the bag. Just waiting for the battery to charge and I'll be away! :-)

Looks like you can get about £50 for Lightroom 4 on eBay...

But is that a full retail licence? Or is someone selling a student edition? Or a pirated one?

You have to be careful with eBay, in particular when software is concerned.

What I mean is if you buy the package, you could get £50 back by selling the software.

They have now removed Lightroom 4 which makes this deal expired

If I ordered when Lightroom was included in the deal, but now is not, do you think they're going to include the software in my bundle?

Does anyone have info of when Lightroom 4 was removed, or a screenshot showing the previous deal with Lightroom included?

Nope, but I did receive the bundle last week, which included a copy of the software. I'm not sure when it was removed, although if it was displayed on the site when you ordered it, make sure that they honour it! If it's not sent with the bundle, call them and argue!

Be careful you may not get cash back if not on their list of authorised sellers...

I received my bundle yesterday but it did not include the Lightroom 4 software, even though it was part of the package at the time of purchase. An email to Dabs however, and they have apologized and said they'd send a copy out straight away. Pretty fair I think!
