I think that this has been on here before.
Yes it is a good price, but bear in mind that this is a grey import and any warranty will not be fulfilled by Nikon UK.
Charger may be supplied with a 2 pin plug, although I believe a UK adapter is also given.
As this is not supplied by Nikon UK you will also not be eligible for the current cashback promotion should you purchase from an approved UK dealer.
Oh, I do have one of these cameras and it's a great introduction to DSLR, so can recommend the kit.
Here is a 3 years warranty and I think you can claim £20 cash-back.

​ essentially it is the same camera but may have different power cables and manuals. Nikon UK do not provide the warranty and so most of the importers provide a third party warranty
anyone know if eglobal would be a better or a worse option than this one? are they a bad company to buy from?. Im after the red one and they seem to be the only company selling the red one with the vr II lens for a good price...

​ no direct experience of them but 8.8/10 from 1,462 reviews on trustpilot.
It's only £20 more (with Nikon cash back) from Jessops, for which you would get a UK model and a 2 year Nikon UK Warranty included.

Yes it is "Official UK Stock" i.e, it will have a 2 year Nikon UK Warranty .
So i tried to buy through Global Central but got an email 24 hours later saying 1 week before in stock.

I have just this second placed an order with Value Basket but then suddenly thought to double check this Site before it's dispatched.

Is £251.99 a good price and is it a UK version with full warranty or 1 of these grey imports you's have mentioned?

Really want this camera for Christmas

@Alikcan i've tried that the last few years with things but my luck hasn't been good when waiting on specific items. Hope you get a bargain tho
I bought this a few weeks ago for £265. Comes with 2 pin charger with 3 pin adapter. This was my first dslr after many years of various compact cameras, must say it is fantastic and I am very pleased with it.
I can vouch for hdew mentioned here I bought a d550 from them and they were great.
