Actually, the OP didn't change anything!

When originally posted "GIL Enterprise" was the Amazon market place seller, that had this for £139.60

Subsequently, "OMG Sales" must have dropped their price (without postage) to appear at the top.

Nothing to do with the OP, I might add.

"GIL Enterprise"
still have this for £139.60 if you look down the list of sellers.

This will have good image quality and is probably what the majority of the people in his class are using. But if he decides that he wants to do it further then it is likely that he will swap the body as he will want more features. A D300, £159 on MPB, this will last him a while as the layout is superior to the D3100, is better built and has a great autofocus system. Though if he is new to DSLR,s and doesn't know how about manual modes and how to use them it will confuse and he will not get on with it. The last option is the D90, £159 on MPB, the best all rounder. If it was me and I was choosing for someone who I do not know the ability get the D90, but seriously consider the D300 if he is thinking about perusing further than just a photography class, for example degree level or as career. In terms of lenses at this stage look on eBay for an 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 VR on bid or buy it now for around £40 mark. In regards 50mm let him decide as to whether or not he wants or needs it as only his photography style will be able to dictate that.Hope this helps you out, the world of DSLR's can be very daunting and confusing.

And with the D70 something like the Nikkor 18-55 F/3.5-5.6, this is the kit that I started out with.

If you are looking for new kit you will be spending a lot more but in cases you can loose features, for example the D70 is capable of using much older lenses then the current D3000 series and 5000 series Nikon DSLR.

It's a Grey Import so not the same deal as posted. Deal posted will come with Nikon UK Warranty and support.
Original Poster
As I can't find a UK registered address fro E-Finity or a VAT number on their website, I presume that it is a grey import.

The price above as far as I am aware is for a registered UK supplier.

I won't get into discussions on Grey import vs non as it has been gone over many times before all over the web.

Yes you can get cheaper via grey import, the question is whether it is appropriate for the individual concerned.

For a UK market lens, in my opinion it is a very good price.

Cos the sony is better than any canon



Is it really? Canon has superior build quality to Sony. And all DSLRs are geared up to get the shot; whereas mirrorless cameras just seem to be for those who take a couple of shots at the weekend. You will never see a pro or anyone who is very serious about photography using a Sony. I am not saying that they are bad cameras for the size and portability because I do admire sony; however I don't see the point in sticking a huge L lens on a small body, it just defeats the purpose doesn't it?

I don't think they meant that as a bad thing against this lens, I think they were pointing out that this acts as a 52mm lens on the cheaper DX bodies. So if you want a Nifty fifty for a DX camera, you actually buy the 35mm and not the 50mm, as the 50mm acts as a 75mm. (Something I actually messed up with when I bought my 50mm for my D200 years ago)

That's how I read what they put anyway. Of course, I may be wrong. X)

Must admit I have this lens, a prime lens and a cheaper telephoto lens … Must admit I have this lens, a prime lens and a cheaper telephoto lens but to state the obvious it depends on the circumstances in which I'm taking pictures as to what I carry with me/use i.e. if photographing wildlife don't really have time to mess around swopping lenses ;)This particular lens has been very handy at times and haven't regretted buying it...well until today when I could have saved around a £100 as I bought it last year when Nikon had a cashback offer on...can't remember if it was £60 or £70 I got back but would have saved about a £100 if I'd waited...still in saying all that I've had the use of it for a year...


Oh I do like this lens. Convenient, ready-to-wear etc. It's just that I don't know I like it that much. 500 quid for a lens is about my limit, but for a lens with a range I've already got covered...cant bring myself to part with the money!

One lens to rule them all.... The idea of having just one 'walk around' … One lens to rule them all.... The idea of having just one 'walk around' lens fixed to the camera is appealing, but most would be better off with a good portrait prime plus cheaper telephoto. Imo:{

I also bought this lens. Not an import. Great deal. Thanks OP.
Glad you got the lens - I never doubted that you would. Amazon have a very good delivery system - often within 24 hrs.
I was curious what concerns you raised and if amazon gushingly accepted all warranty liability.
What is so funny ? Am I wrong about "fulfilled by amazon" ?
edit : All I can find is this - "The condition of the item you buy and its timely delivery are guaranteed under the Amazon A-to-z Guarantee."

You're a funny guy.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it was delivered to my neighbour and I'll have it after I fly home tomorrow.

"fulfilled by amazon" means as much as "delivered by Joe Blogs Deliveries"



Don't be silly.
I've contacted Amazon today as I've had notification the lens has been delivered early.
They were magnificent in answering my concerns.
I'm pretty sure if I had to deal with a marketplace seller directly, which this isn't, 'Joe Bloggs' wouldn't have been so keen to please.

The lens has come back in stock via a different seller and price has gone up to £200.00 now so has been expired.
