Being in the market for a new EF100-400mm lens, I've browsed countless sites looking for the best deals (UK Canon Lenses seem to cost the Earth right now), and I thought I'd list the most helpful below, for anyone else in my position:

The first, CheckoutSpy.co.uk found me a deal on a EF100-400mm for £1175 including P&P:

http://www.checkoutspy​.co.uk/browse/111/elec​tronics/photography/di​gital-camera-accessories?filter[acc​type]=26026&filter[cam​eramodels]=26035&keywo​rds=100-400mm&sort=0 (external link)

Another site found me one for slightly more, at £1190 - but this site features handy graphs showing pricing trends etc - all makes for very depressing reading (in March last year this lens was £909)! :cry:

Try....

http://www.google.co.u​k …pruser&price1=8​00&price2= (external link)

Don't forget cash back sites like http://www.quidco.com and http://www.topcashback​.co.uk (external link). I use both.

If you don't mind buying from Hong Kong then Onestop-Digital have a good rep and often (not always) good prices - http://www.onestop-digital.com …Path=24_26&page​=1&sort=3d (external link)

Ditto Digital Rev - http://www.digitalrev.​com …rd=2&sort_dir=d​esc&page=4 (external link)

Just thought I'd update my thread with another find - CameraPrices.com. The camera and lens prices were comparable with the photographic equipment comparison sites listed above, but unlike those, I found their filtering menu particularly useful.

UK Camera Prices: http://uk.cameraprices​.com (external link)
US Camera Prices: http://www.cameraprice​s.com (external link)

I just need to find a site which finds the best price and shows reviews now - then I'll be happy! :)
