Brilliant cameracat - that link you gave fits the bill perfectly. He also ships from Buckhaven - a couple of miles along the road from me!!!

Much appreciated everyone.

Ian comes highly regarded. I bought my 24-105 from him beofre christmas at what I regarded as a good price. I don't believe in 'real bargains'.

I think that's the address of a relative of his. If you email you may possibly save the 10 postage by picking it up.

I bought a fish-eye lens from Ian Kerso recently and was really impressed with the service and quick delivery - I'd suggest him without hesitation. Karen

Hi

As I understand, Kerso imports these lenses. How does it work with warranties? I'm looking at a Canon L lens if the price is right, and it could save me the hassle of customs if he had already dealt with them.

IIRC Canon lenses have international warranties - so no hassle, you just send them into a Canon UK service centre

Too late for the OP but ive bought an 80-200 f2.8 and a 50mm 1.4 (plus filters etc) from these guys before and ive been well impressed by the price as well as range of products.

Best deals tend to be the more expensive items where they offer to pay any import tax (which they did for my 80-200).

I've used them three times, and never had any problems. They do this import business correctly so you have no problems with Sigma for example, who will not service/repair lenses under warranty if you can't prove you've paid import duties and VAT. You still save a decent amount over the UK retail prices.
One place to avoid. TEKMO.co.uk. I cancelled an order once I realised they were selling grey imports and it's taken over 40 days to get them to refund my credit card. Only the threat of legal action seemed to get them moving.
