Sujoy quoted 16% off from MRP. Ebay offers are more than 17% off... And now that D5200 is launched... it's very likely we can get it around 42k from local store. From online, I am sure we can get for 42k.

Hmmm... seems there are no offers as good as I expected.

The cheapest is 19k, that's sad :( even after applying coupons it won't come close to the price I expected.
And there is no body only deal from ebay or body with 18-105 either. So it seems to be it cost around the price you quoted for this combo... Sorry for making you wondering about the magical price we could get ;)

I can get it for 17k from Aneesh no issue in that...and D5100 for 29k is with 18-55 lens not body alone...

U will definitely get both for 42k :)

Since you bought it, do check, does the Nokia D5100 has any type of stabilization system?

As nac and sujoy said, there is no in-body stabilization in Nikon...rather the lens is having IS... :)

Congrats for the purchase :)

Thank you so much Sujoy... :)

@tkin ....the answer to ur question is simple :)

1.for wide angle like 10-20,12-24,11-16 etc which will be ultimately used on tripod u dont need stabilisation.
2. For lens like 18-55 ,18-105,18-135 with variable aperture (3.5-5.6) u need stabilisation
3. for lens like 17-50 f2.8 its big aperture gives u fast shuter speed in low light soo stabilisation is not needed
4. portrait lens like 35mm,50mm,85mm,105mm dont need VR
5. lens like 135mm,200mm, primes may need stabilisation
6. 55-200,70-300,55-300,70-200 all need stabilisation coz of size
7. all telephoto lens like 300mm,400mm,500mm,150-500,50-500,etc need stabilisation
8. no macro lens need stabilisation 90mm,105mm,nor 150mm etc

Thanks, I was considering a DSLR in future, and I was worried about the lack of such in many of them.

Isn't there a type of stabilization called sensor shift? Which cameras use that?
