Limited quantity available
also im not an expert in cameras or anything, but isn't this same camera cheaper?
that's a grey import
Nice, I would go for this if I wasn't holding out for a mirrorless.
I have been on the fence all day about getting this or not.
Does anyone know if the zoom function on this camera is accessible through buttons or do I have to manually turn the ring on the lens?
Zoom with DSLR is always with lens ring.
Not always, but definitely manual with this one, yes.
Not sure this is a great deal. The 800D is a great camera but the sony a6000 takes similar quality pics for much less (can be had for $600-700). Also the a6000 is much more portable.
Do you think the A6000 is much better than the olympus MK10 MKII?
Both are great cameras imho. Pick on price and preference.
You don't buy a camera because of the body. You buy it into their ecosystem of lenses. Do you know how expensive are Sony lenses?
No are they expensive? i just want a half decent camera to take on holidays.
Good lenses irrespective of maker are expensive. Just get the kit lens if you are a casual user.
Get a micro four third. More affordable lenses and compact enough to take on holidays. Picture quality is excellent. I have a Canon 5D but now use my micro four thirds majority of the time.
@Bluberry: For similar lenses, Sony lenses are more expensive than Canon. Micro four third lenses are heaps cheaper. You are better off getting a good quality lens on the micro four thirds system at a fraction of the price than a kit lens if you are want quality pictures.
No thats just canon marketing bs.
I was (and still am) a long time canon user. I switch to a sony a7 for casual shooting and there are lots of lens options.
High end canon lenses are not cheap either.
what about battery life ?
I had a 650d canon for the last 4 years, standby time is couple months.. 2-3 days of shooting whole day if your on holidays before it dies..
This a very good deal for a Gold Awarded camera. Since it is local stock no need to worry about warranty or repaired if needed.
Gray stock is usually fine for cameras. Canon and nikons are built like tanks. I have a 750D and i droped it over a cliff once while hiking and it fell like 20 m into bush and still worked fine.
Sony i find are less robust but so much smaller and easier to carry.
I've had trouble with both Canon and Nikon cameras and I use them gently and store them well. You can't guarantee that all cameras of a particular brand will work well because you had good luck with a camera continuing to work after a fall. And I bet 20m off a cliff means through bushes that broke that fall because 20m without the fall broken onto a hard surface is NOT something I would expect any DSLR to survive.
Last month on the last 20% off deal TGG has the Nikon D7200 with a kit 18-55 lens which came down to $999 before cash back.
Didn't jump on it at the time..
Now since the 20% off deals only bring it down to 1120 :(
Would canon still offer the cash back offer if the item is bought from the good guys via eBay and not the good guys online directly? has anyone claimed a cashback offer in this way and it worked?
Yes. I did bought few items like camera, lenses from goodguys ebay store and claimed the cashback successfully.
Thanks so much for the reply
