not a bad deal. 55-200mm itself costs about £ 120 and after you have used nikon d3200 for a while, you may want to buy 55-200mm.

In your own words . . . .

In your own words . . . .


There is always one....

Great camera but worth noting that these are not VR lenses.

I thought all of the AF-s were VR? well you learn something everyday, Its a great camera but I'd just buy a body & get a tamron 18-200 and this covers the lot & if you want better get 50mm nikon lens. I still use my d3100 despite having a 5100 & have recently bought the tamron & it means I can take one lens out instead of my 55-200 & kit lens.

This deal was on at Christmas for about the same price but with a free nikon bag.

It is definitely worth noting that they are non-VR lenses as above.

isnt it an older model and newer one is 3300? Can we put wifi adapter for this?

These lenses don't have vibration reduction so if you're likely to be shooting in lower light levels I'd recommend getting the D3200 with the 18-55 VR kit lens and purchasing the 55-200 VR separately from digitalrev for £119, as this is a much better lens

Jessops also have a D3200 twin lens pack for the same price - the second lens is a Tamron 70-300mm. The 18-55mm is a VR in this pack.

lot more detail in another deal, but long story short, you're better off with the higher quality nikon 200 than the tamron 300. in the majority of cases you can crop down the better resulting image to get the same effective zoom level . a large majority of posters shared the sentiment.

the jessops price is a good price, but 18-55 doesn't benefit greatly from vr (unless constantly shooting at low light levels, and even then negligible ) and then you're comparing the non vr tamron and nikon and i've said which i prefer

yes, has been superceded by 3300, but doesn't take away what a great little camera this is. and yes, there is a wifi adapter available.

Or bumping up the ISO.

Looking for deal with the 18-55mm VR II Compact Lens and a 70-200 lense so am guessing neither of these fits the bill.
Guessing with the Tamron approach ~£90 and the compact lense on amazon you are circa £420 so not much in it.

Great camera. Just got the 3200 and 18-55 VR II lens for £310 with the Nikon cashback via Amazon recently so I guess they are reducing other bundles because the offers finished. Make sure though you are getting the newer and much better VR II lens for the 18-55mm lens, otherwise you'll kick yourself. It actually reduces in size too so when you pack it in your bag you save more space and the improvement on vibration reduction is fantastic.

I don't own any tamron lenses myself but I believe they are starting to incorporate their version (VC - vibration compensation) into the newer lenses

I'd agree with the lens, but don't get it from DigitalRev unless you want a whole world of pain when it comes to warranty issues. It took me months to get a lens fixed when DR got the terms of the warranty massively incorrect. They will fob you off for ages and insist you send your kit back to Hong-Kong for inspection whether you use an authorized Nikon service centre to inspect the item or not.

Basically, DR offer a local servicing guarantee, but then don't honour it, especially for camera bodies. If you are lucky (like I was) Nikon will honour the international warranty that they themselves provide with lenses, but bodies are continental-only warranties so any body will have to go back to HK regardless of what DR say if they don't honour their local service guarantee.

The non-vr zoom would be good for landscape and portaraits with a tripod but you would want the 35mm prime lens for this which is an outstanding lens for price. The extra paid for non vr lenses wouldnt be justified as you wouldnt use them. Great entry dslr though, this or even the previous 3100 which you can get for pennies now

Personally I'm looking fora D5100 rather than a D3200 as i want the vari-angle screen but i'll take note of the lens advice - thanks!

My first Dslr and cant fault it as it's nearly idiot proof,spare battery and big is a must,my next purchase as i ran the battery down offloading pictures,there agasin I could have taken the card out!!

Yup, the 5100 is a good un (it's what I 've got) apart from a few other minor differences the 3200 is the same as the 5100 without that screen (which is very useful) as its features got shifted down to the 3xxx line when they added new tech to the 5xxx line with the 5200.

If anyone's considering buying the Jessops deal (currently £10 less than this, with a 70-300mm lens), DON'T.

What I received was a customer return (obvious as it had been crammed back into the box really badly) and when I looked through the viewfinder there was a particle of something in there. Totally unacceptable for a supposedly new item so it's going back. They had no interest in putting it right and refused to do an at-the-door swap, saying they had to examine it first. I ended up telling them not to bother then and to refund instead. The guy, Dave, didn't seem even slightly bothered and I could hear people joking loudly in the background. Totally unprofessional. I'd also signed up to pay via 6 months 0% credit, and he informed me it was up to me to cancel it with the creditor and that they weren't involved. I rang the creditor up and they told me that was incorrect and they need Jessops authority to cancel.

Utter shambles. Avoid Jessops at all costs.

I like my d3200 a lot, it is a very good camera for this price. I get the 18-55II + 55-300 kit at £364.99 from eglobalcentraluk. Great price but was a little concerned that it came from Hong Kong. Didn't have to pay any taxes or clearance costs but still worry about the warranty issue.

this has now gone down to £379.99

this has now gone down to £379.99


Thanks price updated

Jessops are now giving a free accessory kit (bag, battery) with this package for the same price
