    Has anyone out there dealt with 2photospecialist?" It appears to be a Dutch firm and imports grey products into the UK

    If you´re looking for a reliable company for grey imports and very cheap, go through Panamoz. They are based in the UK with a supplier in Hong kong. I have used them and they were brilliant. If you get charged tax when it arrives, just email them the tax bill and they will refund it, as they did for me, 30 minutes later!!

    Photospecialist are the company previously known as Foto Konijnenberg, which they still are in their home country. Long standing company with a good rep.

    I bought my K30 from them and it is NOT a grey import. It is an official Pentax eu camera and covered by the Pentax warranty as well as a 2 year Photospecialist warranty.
    They were a joy to deal with, excellent customer service

    As keithh mentioned, they used to be Foto Konijnenberg but recently changed their name in the UK (and France) to Photospecialist, presumably because none of us could spell Konijnenberg.

    The Photospecialist website doesn’t inspire confidence, but the company is trustworthy. And when I purchased from them I got full warranty documents. I don’t think they do any grey-market stuff (unlike Panamoz, which is all imported from China with no EU warranty docs).

    I have no personal experience of the company, but some Dutch photographers I know buy most of their equipment there and recommend them highly. As mentioned above, as I understand it, it's all legit EU stock, and not grey imports.
