Always remember buyer beware - if it seems to good to be true it often is?

i understand that. but its only about £100 cheaper. not several hundreds
plus the 3% off if paying by banks transfer
ive only found positives so far, but only half a dozen or so
was hoping someone on here had any info on them

i always normaly use camera price buster

I wonder if they're selling non UK supplied items, like Onestop Digital? From the terms and conditions:

"'ProCameraShop' is a trading name of 'Smart Choice Photo Ltd'."
"Smart Choice Photo Ltd is a Hong Kong company..."

Also, they state:
"Most products come with a 12 month manufacturer warranty. Where a manufacturer warranty is not guaranteed ProCameraShop warrants products for a period of 12 months from the date of receipt. "

That implies that the goods are supplied from Hong Kong since, if they were UK-supplied, they wouldn't need to be providing their own warranty.

I'd never pay via bank transfer, it's harder to get the money back if the deal goes sour.

If you don't have a problem with ebay grey market, this looks like a reasonable deal for a UK seller

markyb have you tried getting in contact with kerso? He sells Canon gear at very good prices, often better than those found on the Camerapricebuster website. I have used him a few times to buy stuff, as have quite a few of the other UK guys and gals here on this forum, and also over at the talkphotography forum.

From one of his emails:

All lenses have Canon International warranties. Bodies have USA warranties valid in UK with invoice provided.
