Seems like a good beginner DSLR.
I'm thinking about this or the Nikon D5300 (as a grey import from HDEW)

2 year guarantee included with this product.

£1 cheaper than Jessops, Don't forget Quidco @ 2.5%
Grey imports can be found cheaper, but not sure saving £30 would be worth it.

£499 from Very and pay £166.33 for 3 months and no interest

How does this compare to the canon 100d?

For a starter DSLR that's a good find. Heat added.

Not bad, except it's from Very (terrible reputation re: customer service).

How bad is Very? Very bad?
Because I'm thinking of getting the D5300 from HDEW for £400 delivered, UK based with a VAT receipt but will be a grey import so may have an adapter for the charger.
Or from Very for £500, minus the £50 Nikon cashback and 7% quidco (£30) brings it down to £420 for a UK version.

The D3300 thrashes the 100d, the image quality is far better, as are ISO settings, auto focusing abilities, battery life and colour depth.

Bad enough that when their deals get posted they generally receive lots of downvotes from unhappy customers.

My advice would be to pay with CC and be prepared to take any issues up with the card issuer as they're jointly liable and generally very good at getting your money back should anything bad happen.

Yes the D3300 trashes it but I don't agree with them re: hybrid autofocus. Under certain circumstances CDAF is more reliable and it's good to have both options available.

if you haven't already opted for one, I can recommend the D3300, Highly (I have one), spend the extra saved over the D5300 and buy the 35mm F1.8 prime lens. all you'll ever need really as a beginner, just enjoy it and upgrade in the future.
