60D + EFS17-55 f/2.8 - £1000 at Tesco

Just seen this; could be just the ticket for someone - I think that the price is probably a mistake, but they may honour it if you place an order...

Unfortunately, its only delivered to the UK Mainland.  Seems like a error to me though.

I would never sell my 17-40 and would never buy the 17-55, if that helps.

this one?
both of those are €870 each at my shop, that's gotta be a typo.
but then again, look at the standard £1,588.97 Save £589.00.
so maybe they do know what they're doing.
also, the 60d + 18-55 IS is £914.97
if you've got the cash, buy a few and sell them on ebay...
Too much gear, too little space.

well the review on digitalpicture says that the 17-55 is sharper along the all range plus the 2.8 plus the 3-stops IS... the "only" advantage of the 17-40 seems to be the waterproof and the full-frame compatibility

just received a call from Tesco to confirm the order, card details etc.
They said they will send me the item asap... keeping my fingers crossed :)

Argh! If I didn't get a 600D recently as 2nd body to 7D, I'd be all over this!

Actually, if I got it, sold the 600D+17-55 (as used) that means I could get a body upgrade and probably still have a small profit. Someone talk me in/out of this??? Before you ask, I already have the 15-85 and for my needs the extra range is more useful than a shorter f/2.8 zoom.

All assuming they do sell them at that price of course.

I've been watching the CR forums now for around 6 months in anticipation of the 5DIII to venture into the world of full frame (Currently have a 7D & 400D), but i had to join today to make my first post to thank Traveller for his/her find and for sharing this with us all.

I ordered this around 2 hours ago and just received the same call as arioch82 to confirm security details.  They told me it was a direct dispatch from their supplier and to expect delivery in 2-3 days

Hopefully we'll all receive our nice new 17-55 f2.8 and as a bonus for just £200 a 60D as well  :)

I think it's probably going to be difficult to justify 3 APS-C bodies so it may now me time to say farewell to the 400D...fingers crossed

After checking my credit card and bank balances, I gave in an ordered too... thanks to the timing I wont have to pay my credit card for over a month so I have lots of time to decide what to do.

I sold my 17-40mm L.  It did not compare in sharpness with the 17-55mm lens on my 40D or 7D, and the 17-55 has IS and is f/2.8.  I did use it on my 5D MK II for a few hundred images, there was nothing wrong with it, but I prefered a used Tokina 17mm f/3.5 for $125 to the L lens.  There is a reason its a bargain lens.

Compare them, and make your choice.

Seems that a few of you have throw the gauntlet down to Tesco and placed orders; I sincerely hope that they don't try and back out of the deal if they have made a mistake... Good luck.

And "hear here" to rising up against Tesco when they backtrack. It's not if, it's when:

Quote
Your order is an offer to buy from us. Nothing that we do or say will amount to any acceptance of that offer until we actually despatch an item to you, at which point a contract will be made between us. At any point up until then we may decline to supply an item to you. If we decline to supply an item to you and you have already paid for it, we will give you a full refund of any amount already paid for that item in accordance with our refund policy in section 7 below.

They [online retailers] have protected themselves against pricing errors now :(

I didn't get a phone call, but just looked at my order status and it is on "At warehouse - dispatching soon".
