/ Camera Body... From where?
Looking at a Nikon D7000 as both Mum and Granddad have Nikons and therefore lens to borrow. :-)
As always want to get the best deal (body only). Have checked the usual google and camera price buster etc.
What I really want to know is where would you consider being a ‘safe’ buy?
DigitalRev and other Hong Kong based shops? UK stores only? Amazon?
Is it worth saving £100?
Clifton cameras. Its where I got my 7000. Cheapest at the time
also consider 2nd hand.
keep an eye on ebay and Harrisons:
I got my d7k from Clifton cameras as well. I only went in to look at tripods.
I used DigitalRev for my 5D a while ago. No problems. I think I ended up paying VAT and import duty, but on something of that value I'd rather just pay then try to blag it. I've also bought an 'L' lens off them at some point too.
Valubasket at £629
Do you have to pay VAT on that?
£655 from HDEW with 3yr warranty
I bought my canon 7D off them, based in London, UPS delivery and friendly on the phone
Yeah DigitalRev are good and look at Ffordes too if you're thinking second hand.
I've bought my new body off digital rev but ive got it in a email that if you buy from the web store and NOT the ebay one that - "please note that the price you pay upon check out is in fact all inclusive. Any VAT/duties that may be charged to the parcel will be covered by us."
also be aware that this is considered a gray import and some grays get voided warranty but considering im saving nearly 1k im not bothered and cover it on insurance :)
London Camera Exchange have some decent stuff in occasionally too
I'll be buying a 5D (mk3) off e-bay next month.
