    Default Good online shops for cheap camera gear???

    I was toying with getting a Canon f/1.8 50mm prime and it occurred to me I don't know which are the cheapest, most reliable shops on the net for photography stuff. I have only really bought bits like memory cards and cases as my 300D was an inheritance off my old man when he got his 400D and I am stuck with the 18-55 that came with it and I don't like it much. He is about to buy a [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as he is complaining that he is having trouble keeping his old one steady and this has IS. Any fucking excuse but this means I should be getting his Sigma APO 75-300 which is nice.

    Anyway back on topic. How about we get a thread going here with good shops with good prices. Maybe it could be stickied if it proves a success???

    Got to say [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] are good and seem to be pretty cheap on a lot of lenses. Most places seem to be charging 799 for that lens my old man wnats and with the cashback here it comes in at 665.

    In some of the mags I get they say they will match any price on lenses from other places also

    I'm not sure if you can claim the cash back from this shop as they are based in Hong Kong.

    I'm just trying to find out at the moment, the good thing about them though is they guarantee to pay your VAT if you happened to get caught with it, which is nice.

    I'm just trying to get good price for a EOS 30D, and they have it pretty cheap.

    Been looking at this site and I'm very tempted to get the 50mm 1.8 myself as its only £47.99, although I can't find out postage price without registering?
    Anybody else used these?

    postage varies depending on what level you want (i.e. air, air fedex, air registered etc) I used registered post, it didnt break the bank and came in way cheeper than everyone else.

    That lens comes in at £62.38 with postage using Air Mail unregistered. You can get it off Amazon for 60.10 (?) with free postage.

    Thanks for the info, just completed my order with Amazon for the Canon 50mm. Almost got swayed at the last moment by a Sigma 18-50mm for £42.05, the "zoom appeal" nearly got me. But decided it was probably no better than my std kit lense anyway for that price.
