As an alternative, it is available in red from Amazon for £324 after a £50 saving:

OOS at present so you would need to be a little bit patient.

This is a cracking camera and lens. I'd recommend paying the little bit extra for the VR version of the lens.

Amazon cancelled my D3400 order (and those of lots of other people) so personally I wouldn't bother. hotukdeals.com/dea…569

Sorry to hear that. I was fortunate then I guess. Ordered mine on 25th Sept and received it 7th Nov. But I know they have been showing out of stock for a while so it's whether you get lucky with them sending you one or not.

This was 270

It is a grey import. I ordered from them and was very pleased with the service and camera but it is always a small risk I guess

Time of Bulky DSLR are gone, it's like buying CRT TV in the in the era of OLED and LCD, DSLR will die soon, Mirror less camera are way better in terms of size, picture quality, feature and weight, don't get impress by size of DSLR or fool by compactness of mirror less compact camera, search for Sony A or alpha series or similar.

As semi pro photographer I sold my bulky Nikon 3200, 7100 and few lens from sigma and Nikon, Because of bulkiness it's kills the joy of Holiday and photography.

Not everyone can afford a mirrorless camera

Whilst I agree mirrorless are likely the future, I don't know why you mention CRT vs OLED it bears no comparison. Bizarre.

With all due respect you're a semi pro using enthusiast level APS-C cameras not even full format? My friend is professional photographer by day he uses a Phase One XF and IQ3 100MP back. These costs around £60,000, but they are not mirrorless it has a much bigger heavier mirror than you're used to!

There are some disadvantages you don't mention for mirrorless cameras :

* Electronic viewfinder instead of optical. True you can see a simulation (and is a simulation.. not exact to the photograph) of shutter speed, aperture, DoF, ISO with EVF and they also don't suffer from compromised light.. but they are laggy so not good for fast action shots, and unlike optical are finite, limited in resolution, lacking clarity, and don't guarantee natural colour. You are not seeing thru the lens as most photographers prefer you are instead seeing a digital reproduction of a simulation of the sensor image on a tiny monitor! On most DSLRs the same affect can be achieved in live mode by lifting the mirror and monitoring through the LCD back - effectively a mirrorless camera - but this brings us to the second major problem..

* Mirrorless camera sensors run non stop. The sensor, not the viewfinder. DSLRS only use the sensor when taking a shot. It's a massive difference in battery drain, cuts shooting time drastically, and sensors can overheat or become damaged. This is why DSLRs typically have a timeout of a few minutes in live mode, so you don't burn out your sensor! The difference is reliably 3x as much shooting from a DSLR for the equivalent battery, so you need to invest in and manage spare batteries for mirrorless.

* Although thinner, mirrorless system lenses are about the same bulk. This can actually lead to a handling problem with a lightweight body weighed down by the lens. High end mirrorless cameras are actually getting back to DSLR size for this reason, but I have to say this Nikon is relatively compact.

* Mirrorless don't have independent phase detection autofocus, it's all enumerated from information from the sensor itself. They don't track subjects as well. You have to spend quite a lot of money to close the gap.

* The massive history of lens compatibility for a Nikon DSLR. A full format Nikon will work with most lenses produced for the format over the past 40 years! That not only means a massive array in optics and optical quality - there's also tons of cheap options too! Another mate bought into a 4/3rds system and is loving it, but with regret to the much higher cost of equivalent lenses compared to the many great Nikon or Canon examples.

Other differences...

Mirrorless can typically achieve much faster continuous shoot modes - but usually with fixed focus, due to reliance on processing sensor information for focusing. Typical numbers might be 60FPS fixed focus, 10FPS continous vs 14FPS on a DSLR.

At the bottom end ot the market, you get more for your money with a DSLR. This camera is a bargain and the kit lens is good so heat!
