Canon EF100 f2.8L Macro IS USM from Onestop Digital

I ordered one of these from Onestop on Sunday, and it arrived this morning. Thats as good a service as any local company, Im very impressed. It was £596.81, which is a big saving over the £689 from the UK suppliers....and what an awesome lens!
Im now looking at the Canon EF100-400 f4.5-5.6L IS USM, but its £1225 in the UK and about £1115 from Onestop.....I will have it by the end of the year though

the 100 - 400 is the one i want, but due to the fact they use fedex who are absolutely useless , I wont use one stop again until they start using someone more reliable.

I'm envious of the 100 but I'm looking at the Sigma 150 which is similarly priced, includes the tripod mount, as good IQ but has a longer reach - (less so the 100-400 which I don't use any more)

IIRC, they use "whoever's convenient" rather then just one courier - you could always try asking them to send with a particular company

I presume you paid the extra £10 for courier delivery? I only ask because I recently bought a tripod collar from them and elected for standard airmail (included in price) since I wasn't in a rush. The item was posted in HK on Wed 22 Feb and arrive on Saturday morning, 25th. I will certainly use them again.

Nope. I relied on ordinary delivery because I wasnt in a rush either. I was amazed to open the door two days after ordering it to find the DHL man there with my lens. It even made a brief visit to Germany on its way to me, the DHL tracking site is very good!

I don't want to dampen your spirits as you obviously got a good deal, but you are just (well 30 minutes or so) round the corner from a company in Carshalton that has the lens for £587.00. You pay when you collect, and he has offered an insurance guarantee (sometimes included so worth checking).

A pro friend has used and recommends them. Oh ... where ? http://www.hdewcameras.co.uk

Re: Canon EF100 f2.8L Macro IS USM from Onestop Digital

I recently bought the 100 f2/8 L macro and it is fast becoming my favourite lens. Can't wait to see your images. BTW I have the Sigma120 - 400 and am very pleased. Commutation may assist with another L lens but that is likely to be the 17 - 40 f4. Also researching the difference between the 70 - 200 f2/8 and the 70 - 200 f4 IS which is a similar price. To add to the mix I went to Focus on Imaging yesterday and saw some detail about the new 5d mk3, awesome. regards

Yes I did see those as well, but with the cost of petrol to get there it would have worked out the same really. I had researched it, and most people were happy with Onestop, fewer had previously dealt with the other company, thats why I got it where I did.

Hmmm missed that one originally. £2200 body only at current conversion rates. For that money I can get the 5D mkII with a 24-105 lens.
I wish they would do the same camera without all the video, I wont ever use it and I'm sure a lot of other people wouldnt either. I wonder how much cheaper it would make it?
