Best price ever for this high spec. 14Mp camera.

Body only, but I wonder if they have got their pricing wrong as they say reduced by £14.54, when the typical price is more like £400 to £500.

get it while you can.....

From what I can see the 'typical' price you quote (£400-500) includes a 18-55 mm Lens.
As you say this is body only.
I have no idea how much that lens costs so not voting either way.

No.

Take a look on Camerapricebuster.co.uk, every single other retailer listed is selling this camera BODY ONLY for £400 to £500.

This is a genuinely excellent price.

In fact, Camerapricebuster lists Amazon's price for the A380 body only as £499, which further makes me think this may be a mis-price. If so you better act quickly if you want one.

great deal, hot!

Sooo tempted

Well I dont know if the 'L'on the end means 'with lens' (could be a different package?)
But look here - Sony Alpha A380L Digital SLR Camera With 18-55 mm Lens £468.10

OK, its the same camera, but that works out to nearly £170 more and not everybody wants that lens with it. Even if you did, the lens can be bought separately for around £100, possibly less, which still makes the camera a good deal at £299.

Please make sure you read a professional in depth review before parting with your cash. I did not vote for i feal it's a good price for an average camera. When i say average camera I am comparing it to its peers /equivalent

Banned

I did vote and I voted hot regardless of whether people think its a good camera or not, it's a good price. Whether it's the best camera etc is irrelevant.

guys,great camera.i spent 6 months researching the right slr.the sony range is the bees knees at a reduced price.great quality and when compared to the other offerings from the main manu's,they dont even get close in terms of spec and image.you will be hard pressed to find a sony owner who would say anything negative about these units.

Sony's are fine if you're used to nasty plasticy Canon budget SLRs. If you've used a Olympus, Pentax or Nikon you will find their sony peers well featured but poorly built.

If I wasn't a Canon man I's be tempted by the price of theses Sony DSLR's

Seems to have gone

You're wrong....you can pick up the kit c/w 18-55 lens for £399.99 at Camerabox....

It's certainly not a bad deal for the money, though the magazine reviews are at best average, but for around £400 for the kit it's a tidy enough camera.:thumbsup:

....

and you'd be hard pressed to find a Nikon enthusiast who would say owt negative about Nikons etc etc.......

It's tidy enough.....but very plasticky compared to the more established manufacturer's offerings..... but as long as you see its limitations, a decent price for a middle of the road camera.

I'd be very wary of using camerabox, they are not known for being reliable...

This was a hot deal as the price is at least £100 less than other places, well spotted. Shame it is over.
