I did have concerns initially on visiting this website. The prices seemed too low, the layout was a bit basic, and the extra discount (3%) for payment by bank transfer sounded especially dodgy. However, I took a risk, and was pleasantly surprised. I've since bought quite a few products from them - mostly lenses, but also a camera body, and only had one less than perfect experience, when they delivered the wrong item. They quickly replaced it and gave me a small free gift as an apology. Their prices are liable to fluctuate, so it pays to watch the items you're after for a few weeks or months and take advantage of the best deal when you can - but even at the high prices, you're saving a lot compared to other retailers. Delivery usually within a few working days, never more than a week.
People saying they are dodgy, I can't really understand - I've never had a problem with them. However, at the end of August 2013 all their products seemed to increase in price a lot (~20%) - hopefully this is just a temporary variation. Second, their website has been unavailable for a couple of days at the start of September. Again, I hope this is temporary.
Overall, well worth it. Don't be afraid to pay by bank transfer and save even more.
