place to buy a Sigma in London

My brother is flying to London at the end of this month. So I was thinking of asking him to buy Sigma AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG macro (EF mount). Do you guys know a good place to buy this? and the approx price?

thanks.

Re: place to buy a Sigma in London

If he is going to buy in London the price will not be as competitive as shopping around for the best deal. Will he be in London long enough to be able to order from a provincial shop and get it delivered to his hotel? If he is not staying that long and has internet access he can check places like Calumet, Jessops or Microglobe for the best price. They all have stores in Central London

thanks.
he's coming there for the seedcamp conference/meeting/competition/I don't know? will be staying around for 4 days or so. I don't know if he'll have enough time to look. but I thought I'd give it a shot.

For four days he will have to get express delivery - and that will have a cost that might bring the price up to what the price is at a store in London where he can walk in and buy.

Of the stores I posted, Microglobe were the cheapest at about 170, followed by Calumet at 174 then Jessops at 199.

These prices are for the sigma 70-300 APO. Stores that are part of a large chain (Calumet or Jessops) should be able to get one in if the branch is out of stock.
