So, whether you’re looking to get into mirrorless photography with your first camera to adopt said format, are at the pro or enthusiast photographer level, or want a high end pocket compact for that city break, Sony’s latest money saving scheme – offering up to a generous £380 in cashback dependent on the model selected – has you covered.

But not only that – Sony has included a whole truckload (42 in total!) of compatible lenses in its most recent deal, along with accessory grip, a trio of flashguns and even Sony branded media cards. In short, the electronics giant is offering you a complete solution – all from the one brand.
