Hi all, Looking to buy a new Nikon D850. Just asking if anyone has used SLR Hut and if so what was their experience like.
Regards. Gerry

There is a lot of previous correspondence about this supplier on here, some of it negative.

I have not used them.
However for a large transaction my advice is look closely before you leap.

There is no listing in that name at Companies House. This implies that they are not a United Kingdom Limited liability Business.

I can find no record of their trading name or address via the links on their website.

Negative points are it is not clear if their warehouse or shop is in the UK or if they are perhaps a Hong Kong-based company.
The use of a "" is not restricted to UK based companies.

A positive detail is their web site says they pay UK VAT before shipping.

Their website says items costing more than £2000 or purchased with an extended warranty are not returnable.

If you are spending a little more than £2000 as seems probable as a Europe warranty D850 is around £2,650, you are unlikely to be able to get your money back from SLR Hut if there is a problem.

Thanks everyone. I have seen enough. Going to pay the extra and buy locally. Peace of mind is important to me. Cheers. Gerry

Someone on another forum bought 2 from E-infinity and had no issues. They were quoting £1800-odd.
I bought mine from WEX - got a good trade-in offer on my D800 and they price-matched a competitor's lower cost.
But I did buy a Sony 120GB XQD card from E-Infinity for £150. It took about 1.5 weeks to arrive - they let me know when the delivery was going to be & with who. And so far, no issues. It certainly looked a genuine Sony item.
Sometimes it is worth taking a punt - it depends on your moral compass
