    I'm not familiar with Argos, but here in the US the same kit runs $750 USD including US shipping.

    That's not a good deal.

    This is the lens that comes with the D5000
    Nikon 18-55mm VR
    Amazon UK has the kit you are looking at for 473

    You might want to consider spending a bit more and getting the 18-105 lens. I find 55mm frustrating as its not quite long enough for a casual lens.
