Crunch Time.

I have decided to buy a canon 40D body, as these old eyes of mine are finding it impossible to see any outdoor shots I take on my 350D screen.

If you were purchasing this body today where would you purchase it, the price differentials on line are enormous. Do you have a known and favoured supplier you would recommend.

I am UK based and look forward to your input Cheers

Re: Crunch Time.

Have you a local shop?.....maybe they would price match or better the price they have.

Re: Crunch Time.

Rob Barron got his from One-Stop Digital current price 589.

He had a problem with the first one and returned it - got the replacement inside a week.

Re: Crunch Time.

Warehouse Express. They have a good reputation and that counts for a lot, especially if you're unlucky and there is a fault. I wouldn't buy from an overseas supplier as Canon cameras do not have an international warranty.

Re: Crunch Time.

OK. Thank you good people, have just ordered from Warehouse Express it will be here by Tuesday.

Expect your helpful forum to rapidly approach meltdown, immediately after that date, as this aged ignoramus pleads for help as he struggles to come to grips with even more new technology.

Gawd elp me

Re: Crunch Time.

I bought my 30D from RGB in Middlesbrough and their service was good. However, at the time, they sourced from the US but gave their own 2-year warranty. I'm not sure where their stock comes from now.

Re: Crunch Time.

I think you really have to look about - i was going to go through warehouse express for my body, but got a way better deal at jessops...I think it depends on how 'market vigilant' you are and how good a deal you want...
