Hi all, I am thinking of buying a Nikon lens from Purelygadgets but I have never heard of them until I did a search on the internet. Has anyone had any problems with them or are they OK to deal with?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

purelygadgets = naff, expensive.

hong kong ebay shops = best, cheapest.

I've bought from Hong Kong and saved, but am always worried if they go wrong, i'd probably have little comeback. Be aware from buying from the States as you may get hit by import duty.

Thanks all for your help. I think I am more confussed than ever, but Thankyou all the same, at least it's food for thought.

Thanks Jeff, wondered how they worked it out. I always pay import duty/tax from the States but never (so far) from Honk Kong, sounds like I'm breaking the law! :-(
