“Shakey start, BUT Happy!”

Written on: 01/07/2011 by major frenzy (13 reviews written)

I was looking for a Canon EF 75-300mm lens for my Digital & 35mm SLR's and found Buyacamera.co.uk on the web. I had looked for this lens new, everywhere and had found the cheapest to be £189. Buyacamera sold this for £109 as a white box lens. For those not in the know, a white box item is an item, like my lens, which has been split from a package deal, in my case taken from a deal with another lens and SLR, and sold on its own in a white box. It is still new and comes with warranty.
I paid £109 and £6.99 for next day delivery. The first lens I received had a scratch on the rear glass element, BUT, this was not due to any fault of buyacamera (so they said). I returned my lens immediately, and once they received my lens, sent another out and they said they would refund my postage for sending the faulty lens back, (postage refund has not happened yet though at time of writing this).
My replacement lens is perfect and at £90-£110 cheaper than other online stores, I am very happy now.
Communication from buyacamera's customer services was also satisfactory in dealing with my problem and order.
I would happily use them again and recommend them
