    Hey folks,

    I'm looking to get hold of a Sigma 105mm Macro lense for christmas, i've been instructed to look around on the net to get it by my parents who are going to pay for it. The only problem is I'm not sure where's likely to give me the best service and still be reliable. Any ideas?

    It would have to be a Uk based company for ease of delivery.

    Thnx in advance,

    Ben

    B&H photo would be a great choice except it's not in the UK.
    Try www.buyacamera.co.uk.

    I'm not recommending them because I've never used them. I'm not sure how competitive their prices are but it'll at least give you a starting point.

    I've been looking for a Sigma lens in the Uk as well.

    Try the following:

    London Camera Exchange

    ABC Digital

    Harrison Cameras

    Warehouse Express Canon Camera Shop

    Jessops (although annoyingly they don't show prices for second hand kit if thats what youre after)
