I've made two purchases from DigitalRev and never had a problem.
1. A MarkIV a couple of years ago.
2. A Sigma 12-24 last year.
On both occasions I received brand new merchandise, delivery was via FEDEX a couple of days after ordering.
Although the MarkIV did not have the USA warranty, it was warranted by DigitalRev. Additionally, I have had it serviced under the CPS clean and check by CanonUSA with no problems.
The advantage of purchasing were a good price at the time for the camera of about $900 less than USA retail, no import duty due to the fact the camera is classified as a video camera for Customs purposes and is free of duty. The duty on the lens was about 3% as I recall still a significant saving over the USA price for the lens.
I would purchase from them again without any hesitation if the price was right.
Very pleased it worked out for you.
But it appears that recently they have joined the other low life profiteers who adulterate the serial no's . These units then can no longer be serviced by Canon. So by conjecture they can also no longer be ethically sold on secondhand!
I am sure if you take this new situation into consideration, surely you wouldn't do business with them again in the future, or would you?
My point is graphically demonstrated in the medical world.
" a guy slept with a girl and got Aids , she was then tested and the result came back as HIV positive, she was then tested four more times and each time came back tested as HIV positive.
" Another guy said - hell I slept with her last year, and I'm OK and I had a really good time, sure I would sleep with her again!
Hmmm I think most rational people would be worried about his little grey cells. Unless of course she was his sister and then hell, that would be OK, cos she's family!
