The best Canon EOS 80D deals in October 2017

It may have now had its first birthday, but the Canon EOS 80D still embodies the best of what enthusiasts should demand from a modern SLR camera. It has fast, effective autofocusing, excellent handling and, of course, takes dazzling images. Sound tempting? Then we'll help you find the best price for your new Canon camera.

Although its a little bigger than the average compact system camera on today's market, there's no denying that the EOS 80D is a brilliantly built bit of equipment. It has been designed with ergonomics at the forefront of the process - we found the touchscreen responsive and its controls to be logically laid-out to make the most of the abundance of features. Enthusiasts can make the most out of the vari-angle hinge and rapid autofocus system. And did we mention the sheer quality of the images it captures?

It probably won't surprise you to hear that a camera this good will cost you the best part of a grand. But you can make sure to minimise your spend by checking out our price comparison chart at the bottom of this page. And scroll down for a summary of the specs of the Canon EOS 80D.
