Just wondering if anyone has dealt with Camera World before? Their website prides itself on several awards and they have tome shop photos. Specifically I'd be interested in knowing of any after sales support experiences (esp when purchasing via remote/net).

I'm curious since CameraPriceBuster lists them as having some low costs on gear and I just want to double check

Camera World are a reputable company. They usually have a stand at Focus each year.

Many thanks for the response - sounds like its all good for Camera World Smile . Now all I have to do is overcome the pre-purchase fear!

Could not fault them and had nothing but praise for them until the time they screwed up an order of mine about a year ago.
The unprofessional attitude from staff that followed left me gobsmacked. Never been back since, nor recommended them. Hopefully it was a one off.

Only just seen this thread, but I bought my Sigma 17-70 from them a few years back. It seemed to suffer from the "soft focus on one side" issue.

I contacted them, they collected the faulty lens from my workplace and delivered a new one.

Pretty swift turnaround, and personally I found the staff friendly on the phone. I'd recommend them and use them again too.

Bought my last camera from them I got a great price, cheaper than Warehouse Express at the time on my camera. Good communication during and after.
