Re: Dealer

No, but at one time I considered them. After some looking around and searching I decided they are all imports. Not only that they, subliminally, give the impression that they are a British company with mainland stock. I haven't used them so take my comments with some leeway.

Re: Dealer

They are Hong Kong based as Stepheno said, there are quite a few threads about them from disgruntled customers, having said that my mate ordered a lens from them and it arrived pretty quick and with no hassle.

If you are going to use companies like this there is always a certain amount of risk, I'd say if you do want to use them make sure you use a credit card and then you are covered anyway by the credit card company.

There's risk whoever you use mind, just ask the people that ordered thing from Jessops just before they went bust.

Re: Dealer

Same experience - very good but I have found that it is best to order Sunday for the quickest standard delivery. Hong Kong being 10 hours ahead, by the time we go to bed their Monday has already started. I have ordered later in the week (Wednesday evening I think) and they seemed to wait for early week for the standard delivery ... I think as one of my deliveries was delayed until Sunday shipment and I suspect that faster delivery may have been applied had I paid for it. Nevertheless an excellent service. Look forward to seeing some results from this lens!
