Is it UK source and with Nikon UK Warantee?
I've had experience with these before and when I ordered a camera body they didn't ship for a good few days then to find out they didn't actually have the item in stock. Great price but be careful!

No it will be a "grey import" but they do offer there own guarantee
Phenomenal price

Depends what kind of photography you want to do really? you'd maybe be better off with something like a d3300 to start with as for this price you can get the camera, a 18-55 lens and a 55-200 lens which would cover you to begin with.

No, no - just curious what it would need to get it ready for action. More than happy with my Sony a5000 !
Gonna vote cold because I made an order with this company via eBay, and they didn't ship for 3 weeks, in the end saying the package got lost. luckily, as I bought through eBay, my money ended up refunded. Just be careful.

My suggestion is to look at kenrockwell website.
I have ever used this seller to buy a lens, but through Ebay not directly from their website. Took couples of day to receive it.

I can say Nikon kit lens 18-55mm vrII is really amazing for a kit lens. Nikon 35mm f1.8 dx is also amazing. It's depend what you would like to shoot.
Love my D5200
I love lamp, and my d5200
The Nikkor 35mm is a hot lens. Is pretty much almost the only one I ever use. Image quality outstanding. I find it better than the 50mm one as you can fit more in the frame! Go for the 35mm with this and you won't be disappointed.
Ah I recall coming across this seller on eBay and choosing another seller as their feedback is quite poor.

It all depends on your usage. Sometimes you don't want to fit more in or be 10 inches in front of someone

Surely not a photography snob ? X)
Nah - Sony a5000 never let me down. Fantastic pics so far. I acccept this would better those pics, but I got the a5000 brand new off the (now bafflingly closed) Sony Outlet shop for £143 ! (_;)

nono! all depends what you want to do with it really! i got the d3300 mostly for holiday pics but it is probably a bit of overkill. The sony seems to be a good mix of good quality shots while keeping it in a small package. for that price you cant complain at all though, i was a little bit more than the normal price of one for my camera body. Normally swear by sony for everything but jumped at the first bit of advice on what to buy X)

Only kidding. But seriously. The a5000 has been far better than I expected. Like Sony stuff, which is why most of my electrical stuff IS Sony in the house (even my phone is a Sony Xperia Z2 1)
The A5000 has the same sized sensor as this Nikon. One is more compact than the other.

Are you for real ?!...what about sealed body in D7100, lenses availability ?
A5000 might be considered as a backup camera, that's all...

Only 98.7% on eBay, which is quite low considering feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/…ler I'd much rather have a 0.1% chance of something going wrong than a 1.3% chance.

ORDERED.

Will let you know how I get on. Nervous as this is a massive purchase for me.
Fingers crossed eh?

A5000 and A5100 are definitely not cameras a pro would consider. The A6000 however is quite different and can be configured for back button focus etc.

Due to reduced flange distance you have access to almost all manual legacy lenses with an adapter, and caveat of the cropped sensor as well as manual focus and aperture control. Manual focus is made easy on the Sony with focus peaking. With an LA-EA Sony adapter you have access to all the Sony A mount/Minolta lenses with AF.

Sony has its advantages, the Nikon has its advantages, but use whatever works for you youtube.com/wat…eaw

As with any camera advertising weather sealing or water proofness it's sensible to be as protective as possible and use it in nothing but a light drizzle. If water does get in manufacturers tend to reject warranty repairs reddit.com/r/p…es/tobinators.com/blo…ck/ Only when a camera and a lens has an IP rating would I want to be out in full on rain.

Just get any Nikon lens. Then a Nikon flashgun. Then another Nikon lens. Then another. Then another. Then a case. Then another. Then a different strap. Then an extra battery. Then faster SDXC cards than you already had. Then another lens. Then a few Sigma N-AF lenses. Then a few Tamron N-AF ones. Then some old vintage Nikon F-mount manual lenses. Then back to some more modern Nikon lenses.

It never ends. Seriously. Go for it.
lol I have 5 lenses now for my d5200
Bought from them before, yes it's a grey import but UK cover the warranty. I know this because I've sent it back twice now, once was my fault and both time nikon fixed under warranty.
I'm tempted by this. I've had my d3100 for a few years now and fancy an upgrade. I have a selection of Nikon lenses already.

yes but remember its a DX sensor on this so a 35mm lens comes up more like a 50mm and 50mm more life 85mm.

The best advice i could give anyone is NOT to read Ken Rockwell. It maybe okay for specs (available on the Nikon site), but nothing else. This is a man who recommends shooting in jpeg low, says high end cameras are not worth it, then gives said high end camera rave reviews. He draws newbies in giving bad advice, and begs for money.

Woah woah woah, you're kidding me. This explains a heck of a lot. So my Nikon D90, that's a DX as well?

Believe it. Or better still, look at the box your D90 came in. It’ll say DX.

A 50mm lens on a full-frame digital or a 135 format film camera gives you a fairly ‘normal’ field of view — roughly what the eye sees without too much peripheral distraction but still fairly average. It was probably the most useful lens for most people in the days of the film days, back in the day.

A DX sensor is smaller than the area of a 135 format film gate (still pretty huge, though!) and falls well within the image circle thrown by a 50mm full-frame lens. That central amount that the DX sensor sees is a bit narrower — 1.5 times narrower in fact. It gives the same effect as if you’d taken a full-frame 135 format film camera and took the 50mm lens off and put on a 75mm lens instead. Which you might well do if you want to take a waist-up and head-shoulders portrait of a person without all the extraneous nonsense around. If you want the extraneous nonsense, you’d keep a 50mm on.

If you want that equivalent field of view with all the extraneous surroundings, on a DX sensor, you instead use a 35mm lens to get the same scene.

If you were using a a 135 format film camera and wanted an even wider view which takes in everything including the walls, most of the ceiling, and exaggerates the nearest thing to the lens, such as a persons nose, you’d probably also use a full-frame 35mm lens but you’d be calling it a wide angle (a fairly mild wide angle, but a wide angle nevertheless).

Or these days, you’d use your phone, which gives the same kind of wide view (and big nose).

£413.49 (with discount) now...
Just arrived.
I am such a mug, they sent it to me in a 18-140mm lens included kit box.
I got way WAY over excited thinking I'd got a free lens out of it. Even told a few people.
Then opened the box and they've simply take the 18-140mm lens out. What a tease!
Also, I have only just seen the discount code so......the mug that I am, I paid full price for it.

I lose at life.
