Recommendations buying lens

Post by blakey » Thu Jan 30, 2020 3:54 pm

Hi

Where's the best place to buy lenses, I was looking on Amazon but after a little digging I see there's are sent from Roma

Anywhere in the UK that sell new canon lenses
ie: 100-400mm mk2

Cheers

I've used Panamoz for new kit but why not second hand? MPB FC sponsor) are really good. Thier ratings of the quality of the kit are correct. I've bought lenses and flash guns from them, perfect condition.

No such thing as "best".
You might want to have a look at Park Cameras (new/used, London & Burgess Hill).

I've used Wex in the past for both new and used. If you mean best for price and know what you want then you just need to look online and for reviews as well.

Second shout for Wex...I've bought nearly all my gear from them with no problems at all.

Thanks chaps

I've looked at 2nd hand models online and there's only a couple of hundred pounds between new and 2nd hand so I'll go for new and I think that was on Wex

I'll check out the others you've mentioned.

And yeah sorry I meant to put best price for a UK model, still unsure about one coming from Roma

Panamoz without a doubt. Extremely good service, new items, and the warranty works fine! Be hard to match.
My 5DIV and 100-400 mkii came from there, along with other gear.
Cheers,
Chris

Panamoz don't ship from the UK, and items don't have a manufacturers UK warrantee. If that's important to you then chose someone like Wex.

I ordered my 7D2 body from Panamoz and it shipped from Hong Kong.

Fingers crossed

I had to make a warranty claim on my 5D IV from Panamoz, it was very straightforward.
