    does anybody know any trustworthy online camera shops based in the UK?

    I want to buy a new lens but the place i usually deal with doesnt have them in stock, so i need an alternative

    also Does anyone have any experience with abc-digital-cameras.co.uk?

    Thanks
    John

    Hi, Well i use eBay alot hence my nickname cBay, and there is a trusted seller on there that comes from Dudley, UK and he does his lenses at good prices compared to the high street shops. I have recently found that it is cheaper to purchase from Honk Kong on eBay every purchase i have made so far has been fine and delivery is within a couple of days normally.

    In regards to the website you stated I've personally never heard of it.

    What lens is it your looking at?

    I generally buy from Warehouse Express

    http://www.warehouseexpress.com/

    They have a big selection and their prices aren't too bad at all. Their after sales service is excellent too.

    I took a chance and used ABC-digital-cameras.co.uk in the end. Bought a 24-70mm L and it arrived today (next day delivery). They had it for the cheapest i could find on the net too.

    so it's a... :thumbup: from me!
