    Merry Christmas all!
    I'd like to buy a Canon Eos 450d. What are the chances of getting a good deal in the sales?

    Any ideas where from?

    ]keep an eye here
    Also would go for the 400d as it uses CF cards which is the industry standard for slr's.
    450 uses sdhc

    Cheers:thumbsup:
    Have a look at lenses from onestopdigital on that page, delivery from HK usually within 5 days and they pay the tax back if you get charged for import duties :thumbsup:

    I have been pricing these up for a while now, i am after the twin lens package.

    I think Jessops seem the cheapest at the moment,
    buy the 450D with the 18-55 lens for £434.54 (not the cheapest out there i know) but then you can get the Tamron 70-300mm f4/5.6 DI LD Macro (Canon AF) lens for £97.87 (half price if purchased with a dslr was £195.73).

    Total price £532.41 + quidco @ 3% = £516.44 + £50 cash back through canon also a free camera bag at the moment.....
    Jessops sell this as a twin lens package for £548.08, so instead of buying it as a package buy it seperate.

    The half price lens offer seems to of ended now....

    Hmm. No reductions so far. Maybe have to wait till after the new year.

    Just as an FYI for anyone who is looking for one of these cameras:

    I went to Comet and looked for the kit (the tags ending in a N or better still a D signify N = end of shelf and no more stock coming in and D = discontinued).

    The guy pointed this out to me and I ended up bargaining (for ages) to get 20% off the 449 price. So I got it for £359.99 and I get the £50 through Canon.......very impressed.

    Trick is to get in and don't give up.........barter barter and barter again.

    Good luck.

    I've been to every Comet near to me and they're all gone. Well done to you though! :thumbsup:

    Castle Vale in Birmingham and Shirley, Solihull.

    Hi again guys,

    I did see on his screen that there is one left in Kingsway Retail Park, Derbyshire. I have attached a link to the derby store here.

    All stores are not getting anymore stock in of this superb camera......

    Good luck.

    Link to the store.....(I would phone first if you are making a long trip).

    No such luck for me i have just been to two local Comets and they both have lots in stock and wont offer any discounts.

    Best deal at the moment seems to be Jessops who are offering it at £434 with £50 cashback and a free SLR bag.

    cheaper at Jacobs £429.99 plus a better camera bag ;-)
    plus better quidco as well (slightly)

    Did anyone try comet in derby?

    Any chance of posting a copy of a reciept (obviously editing out card numbers etc) so I can have some ammo to barter with my local. Also so many size sd card of different makes. Sandisk seems to come tops but does it matter what size I go for normal & extreme models etc.

    Thanks for the tip! I'm off to look at Jacobs, anyone seen any other good deals about?

    I will sort out a scan of the receipt at some point tomorrow if thats ok?

    This place is advertising the 450D for body only for £238

    xenosworld.com/ite…739

    I can't vouch for them as I haven't bought from them

    They also have the kit I bought for £328 converted from Euros.......and they have stores over the country......seems like a cracking place to get it, if you ring em and buy in store!

    Sounds too good to be true, and probably is. One of the stores is 1 mile from where I live, however the option to collect in store is not available, delivery only.

    EDIT:

    None of the items on the site are available for pick up, and I don't recall ever seeing the shop itelf. Well dodgy, avoid this one me thinks.

    This company is extremely suspicious, the opening hours are odd for sundays especially in a shopping centre, no VAt no, no phone numbers except a pre paid one. No mention of them on google. Buyer beware!

    Agreed. This is obviously a fake site, albeit a good one. Do not buy from this site!

    I have typed the birmingham sites into google and it finds nothing....

    Me too. I live very close to Stechford Retail park and they do not have an outlet there as they claim to on their website.

    Awesome huge thanks if you can post a copy of reciept. It's people like you that make this world a nicer place. :roll::roll::roll:

    Whats your email address?

    Hi again it's [email protected]

    I'm hoping to get a result today. Hopefully a great deal like the one you got, you must be chuffed at the cost. I'll let you know what they do for me. !!!!:thumbsup::):thumbsup:

    well, how did you get on.....

    Hi I never recieved a copy of a reciept. Spoke to one of the guys in store and manager and he said without proof he wouldn't honour. Jobsworth!! Still waiting in hope for a copy of reciept before the cashback. Please help!

    Hi

    I wouldn't mind a copy of the receipt please? Doesn't the cashback finish on the 12/1/2009?

    Kind regards
