ProCameraShop is appreciably (but not ludicrously) cheaper than other sources (if you take up its discount for bank transfer payments) but the buying experience is one of the best, in terms of communication, that I've had.
There was a problem with its warehouse systems that resulted in a couple of days delay - a bit worrying when you don't have the assurance of a credit card payment. However, regular email contact was maintained and a person was available on the phone to advise when to expect delivery. As you never know how good a supplier is until something goes wrong, this experience actually increased my confidence in ProCameraShop.
Not using a credit card is still a bit of a risk, and you may have to rely on ProCameraShop for your warranty (although many brands have international warranties that may not be as long as a local warranty) but it seems to be at least as trustworthy as any online trader and better at communicating than many.
The Olympus 60mm macro lens I purchased is excellent - usable as a walk-around short tele and incredibly easy to use as a macro lens, with the latest Olympus mirrorless system cameras. The sort of excellent lens that justifies the investment in the micro fourthirds system.
