As always, when looking to buy an expensive piece of kit I did my research to try and find the best price. Procamerashop came up with a price for a lens that was over £100 cheaper than the high street. Of course, this makes you wonder why they can offer such cheap prices, so I did some reading around. From what I can see, a lot of what Procamerashop sell are 'grey imports' i.e. goods from outside of the EU. Some people might worry that this means that you are not covered by the manufacturer's warranty - however, Procamerashop offer their own one-year warranty, which is the same as you would get from the manufacturer anyway. So when all is said and done, you are getting equipment that is substantially cheaper than the UK recommended retail price and that comes with an equal warranty. I've been really pleased with the lens that I bought from them. It was in full retail packaging and then securly packaged for shipping, which is from within the UK by the way, so you don't have any worries about paying import duties and taxes. Communication was great - they e-mailed me at every stage to let me know when the payment was cleared and when the item was shipped. It's little wonder that they have such good feedback on here. I highly recommend Procamerashop to anyone considering buying camera gear. You won't be disappointed, and you can put the money that you save towards buying some extra kit! I shall never pay high street prices again.
