Fair enough I did my research before buying grey. Bought my Canon 80d grey from HDEW who seem to be a pretty safe bet from the feedback I've seen, and saved over £400. They also operate from a shop so I could go and see people face to face if needed, should a problem arise.Thankfully it went as smoothly as if I had bought non-grey. I went for Tobydeals for this lens as they were cheaper than most. I could have got it a little cheaper, but from a seller for which there wasn't so much feedback available. Tobydeals get more mixed reviews than HDEW, but I took the gamble and all went smoothly. Only issue I have is that they use Yodel to deliver their non-insured items and I would rather gouge my eyes out with a spoon than use Yodel knowingly. So I've saved £450 by "going grey" in the last 2 months and I'm well happy.
I bought a grey import before and it never arrived so vowed I would only buy in the uk - im really happy with the lens!
Wow, I can't believe how much they are new now...I got one a couple of years ago for less than this...Might have been on offer though, can't remember. There's one on WEX for £176. Anyway, I think this is a great lens. I'm only a novice but this was at 12mm on a 7D
Great. At its cheapest £250 more. Alternatively you could buy the 80d, 15-55 and 55-250 kit for the same price. Thats not including the extra batteries the a6500 needs. Both cameras are targetted at budget conscious enthusiasts. The 80d offers substantially better value for money.
Ah of course... comparable products with better peformence. Makes sense... So which Sony body is comparible or better than the 80D and available for £580?
Never heard this before. Is this pixel peeking or more noticeable than that? I always thought the sensor was not bad on the 80D. Not quite up to Sony on DR but otherwise up to the standard of the other multitude of 24MP sensors on the market.
Yep because the public are thick enough to just keep buying a name rather than a better product for the same money as they dont know better. Im trying to help people make an informed decision rather than just listening to the Canikonista bleating out the same old rubbish for the next 10 years whilst living in the past and not accepting change or the future! Nobody rules forever
If your using high iso and f2.8 zoom lenses then best stick with full frame. But if using primes only like myself then a different story.
More a zoom guy so rarely going below 2.8... occasionally put on the primes, but more 70-200 or 28-70
Im shooting on olympus using leica glass. Its micro four thirds so double crop factor. Only downside is high iso. But because i can shoot fully wide open at f1.2 i don't need to increase the iso. For years i was always full frame but could never use lenses wide open. Trying to use 1.2 canon L glass comes out soft and impossible to nail focus with to much shallow depth of field. Rule of thirds was impossible for weddings Which makes it useless for me and pointless. The pro with micro four thirds is that everything is very small from body to lenses. And because of the double crop depth of field isnt as shallow so it can focus very quickly but let in lots of light. E.g, an f1.2 lens gives depth of field of 2.4 but lets in the light of 1.2. But depends on how you shoot, your style. I only use primes.
What are you shooting on? I have so much canon kit that not sure I can make the transition... And seen some amazing shots on ridiculously high ISO on the 5d4. How does yours compare?
I have an 80d with 5 lenses, worth the upgrade.
I’ve been buying cameras from them for years and I’ve never had a problem. Should their warranty be no good I’ll just pay for a repair and I’ll still be up. I just bought a 6D mkii for £900 from eBay and UK price is double that. I’ve never known the gap be so big!
okay, by bad, I meant dual pixel autofocus that this DSLR has, not all cameras have that, the 6D doesn't.
Nope, not in video, but you didn't mention video. If video was a concern, I wouldn't buy a Canon DSLR anyway.
Not in video, don't a bunch use contest detect?
Looking at the price of a 5D IV , in the UK from Jessops its £3200, and on www.digitalrev.com (Imported) its only £1800! Its crazy how much extra you pay over here.... I bought my 6D and 5DIII from Digital rev and received them within 2-3 days! and never had a problem with them.
you sound like ones of those guys that is always wrong and keeps digging but hey... you proved your points... oh wait...
You just sound like one of those guys that has to always be right and you don’t seem to have a clue. I could write you a whole essay on it but why not just watch some footage for yourself. It’s not all about features. I use canon, I use Sony and my personal camera is black magic. I don’t keep track on the Sony deals because I got an a600 3 years ago with kit lens brand new for 340, ironically to replace my canon, which has better colour rendition for the most part. But the video is still terrible except for the 5d models (and let’s face it, there are many better options for video around that price range too), ever since they updated the codec via firmware with the higher bit rate (more than twice if this canon) I don’t really care what people go for but to see this is equal to much superior cameras is a bit absurd. Especially with these lenses. But it’s a great deal for people that don’t mind being locked into EF-m and want photos and videos easily and pretty decent. This doesn’t even use proper lenses, it’s EF-m mount! You might as well compare a bridge camera to a proper mirror less.
the age of the sony is irrelevant to the point yes i'll say the single deal that you managed to produce was a misprice i assume you mean the john lewis deal where a single colour of a6000 was moved to the price of the cheaper a5100 without a price change advert before they changed it back up? misprice but ofc you can use on of the other 'lots of deals' for examples you keep rambling on about video - other than the EVF there isn't really that much difference according reviews with the touchscreen on the m100 aiding focus racking as well as general usage in short you just sound like a sony fanboy ranting about the 1st gen of canon mirrorless keep trying - you may get one thing right if you keep at it! i am also willing to hear about plenty of better options of camera+kit lens better than this for 220 1..2..3..go...
Lol, didn’t realise you were one of them. yes, you’re right, it must have been a misprice like all the other deals. Even though those sonys are over 3 years old and still outperforms this. My main point is there are plenty of better options, Sony or otherwise which are superior to this, especially for video
'there has been' is code for 'one off' or 'misprice' not 'lots of deals' a5000 is irrelevant to your previous point
Thanks I ordered one last night and didn't know that. Appreciated.
Get £40 cashback on this product from Canon
It’s full HD 1080P 30fps
If only it offered 1080p at 60fps I'd be all over it
ok thanks.. just couldn't see it online.. ill try my local and see if the same offers stands..
I popped into jessops in manchester and they told me that the adaptor is included
Hi I cant seem to see anything about an adaptor at jessops? does this come in the deal? Thanks..
Just an update. Wex are matching Jessops price. BUT Jessops are including the adaptor as part of the deal. Still awaiting wex response to see if they are too.
This deal just popped back up again and then disappeared from Prime day, although you can still buy it at this price through Amazon if you search for it. Its not in stock until 20th July but it can still be bought.
Deal has expired.
419.99 for me?
Ordered this myself. Can also combine with the £15 off with code student15 if you have a student account.
Now I am really tempted!
6D is still a brilliant camera, I've used mine everyday for the past 5 years and it has never failed. It's been used for personal as well as professional video/stills work. Not had any issues with focus, but I admittedly only ever use the centre point on any of my cameras and manual focus for video (of course). This is a great deal if you're moving from a crop sensor.
Fair enough. I was equally surprised by the customs label tbh. That seems legit, I did wonder if the vat on the receipt was just for show. Didn’t check their 6D price in fairness. For that camera I’m sure it’s a good deal (I didn’t vote) I was just saying just generally wouldn’t buy 6yr old tech.
I know Panamoz incredibly well - I've probably made 20+ purchases from them. Yours is a rarity if duty & VAT are correctly paid, because for 99%+ of orders, it isn't. As far as the reputation and warranty goes - if they decide to close their doors one day, buyers are shafted. The warranty isn't a "Canon Warranty" - they give you authorisation to send to Canon, ask you to pay the bill, and reimburse you - what do you think would happen if they closed? And to be clear, they have closed their doors before. Either way, it's still a substantial £750 more than this deal, and less than the 6D + 24-105 is selling for on Panamoz.
Had my 6d for about 3 years, it’s not perfect but am happy enough with it
Or "only 70% more" for a 6year newer camera. Dont find much rapidly changing tech (TV for example) which is only 70% more expensive than a 6yr old model. But yes big price jump but if you cant afford the newer one, id personally buy a lower end but newer camera. TBH the 6DMKii is a disappointment in low light (or bright light where it struggles with DR).
How does this compare to the Canon 750d does anyone know?
So gutted I missed this, the 200d body was a better offer looking at the list on the link, shame the £550 200d + lens wasn't on it. I wanted one anyway but its a bit much at full price.
Chinese version ? Most of the Nikon stuff is made in China or Thailand. Think only the realy expensive stuff is made in Japan.
Back up to full price now.
Showing as £404.98 for me
already have one. (angel)
This is not the worst deal for this lens, they usually sell for around £1100 - £1300 used on eBay.
(:I (:I (:I
I’m surprised you posts this. It didn’t go hot when you posted it 6 days ago either.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-43907695 yeah some are genuine obviously, but there are a lot of people who've only done 1 review. could be spite/competitors could also be genuine too. I work in a very competitve market and we do get fake reviews left for us
Great camera but grey import if that matters to you!
cold - 1300d is cheaper and better take a look at the build of it - its the worst canon i have ever seen edit: wait a sec you've made a hash of this thread neotrix, deal price is for camera and 2 lenses but you only list one of them also the lens is obviously 18-55 not 15-88 there is also cashback available but not sure if get a proper currys receipt or not edit2: infact i still think its cold if no cashback
Currys have made an absolute dogs dinner with this ad, the description the title etc.
why on earth is this pinned as well? its not a good deal - you can get a better 1300d for less!
is this not supposed to be a downgrade from their already entry level range?
100 pounds difference may consider travelling to get that.
it's 18-55 mm. The 35mm equivalent is 29 - 88 mm
This was (and maybe is) £329.99 at Dixon in Gatwick airport. Don't know if that's the usual price there, and not everyone can get to that shop, obviously. Worth a look if you're flying soon.
Back in stock at this price!
Now only £50 cashback and price has gone back up to almost what it was before I posted this deal, that was not a deal as the price was lower elsewhere.. not!
i wouldn't call the 75-300 a 200+ lens even if thats its rrp is it a twin kit lens abroad? as brand new grey imports are under 100quid and eg http://www.camerajungle.co.uk/products/12276/canon-ef-75-300mm-f-4-5-6-iii-lenses/151743?utm_source=gshopping&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIydWQ29q02wIVKrvtCh2TlAVNEAQYAyABEgLep_D_BwE is 70quid 2nd hand (assuming i am not mixing up lenses) not a bad price though so heat added
Us too, however seems the Sony / Nikon gangs are getting the better of this deal package price, so it helps, this is not a grey import, it has the correct full 141 canon swap out, 3 year warranty and you get the £200+ lens for nowt! Lower that it was on black friday by £72 (y)
Hot I love Canonbert... 8)
What did you end up going for?
Can you recommend a good camera I need to buy one for a cousin abroad.
I am waiting for the right deal to come up on a new canon as my 600d packed up a while ago. If you are not to worried about the numbers on the front the 1300 stacks up well against the much older 600d and has some extra features such as wireless. Have a look here. https://www.digicamdb.com/compare/canon_eos-1300d-vs-canon_eos-700d/ I still think it’s a hot seal though
I own this camera and can honestly say it is fantastic. It's very easy to use and the picture quality and results you can get are brilliant. Although slightly outdated now (no wi-fi, NFC, bluetooth connectivity) if you're not interested in these things this a great camera for an a amateur photographer who's buying their first DSLR and will keep you going well until you're intermediate. The range of 2nd hand lenses you can is remarkable! That said - if anyone wants to buy mine off me, send me a DM - I'm getting married and my fiancee has a better model and we dont need two!
Would recommend a 2nd hand 6d for your astro stuff. Full frame, top class noise reduction with high iso. Put some good glass in front and you will have some pin sharp results. The only limits then are your commitment to star chasing. Maybe a good thermos flask in the budget too :)
Just wonder if anyone can confirm whether connect station cs 100 comes separately boxed? (The reason I am asking is Argos has handed me only a box with dual lense which doesn't include the connect station). Any help will be much appreciated.thanks in advance!
You could help prospective buyers by dropping a link :)
riiiiight, made up then
Do your own research
you still haven't linked to the d3300 with kit lens and a wide angle zoom for 400quid - this is the 2nd time you've said its cheaper (new uk stock)
