Hi all,

I'm trying to purchase the above lens. I have been told by Warehouse Express that its out of stock and they don't expect any more until March!!

I don't wish to wait that long.

Can anyone recommend another reliable and reasonably priced supplier please?

I don't fancy ebaying stuff in from Hong Kong really, would prefer UK based suppliers.

I know a shop called RGB Labs in Middlesbrough had some in recently. The web address is I don't know how they compare on price but they seem competitive enough.

Hope this helps

I'd recommend jessops, go to camerapricebuster and look up the lense too. Great price comparison site

I have just purchased mine from Hong Kong through ebay for 520.00, I have used the same supplier for all four of my EX lenses with no problems, they even guarantee to sort out any vat or import duty claims. On the first occasion I used them I received a dodgey Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 EX DG MACRO I returned the item for which the postage was refunded and they sent a replacement (total turnaround in 7 days).
Initial delivery times are between 3-4 days, their username on ebay is URGALAXY and they run a High street store in Hong Kong, They are an official Canon outlet.
This is just my experience of this particular reseller but a number of my friend have used these people without issue.
As yet I have not had to pay import duty or vat.

I bought it from Bristol Cameras. But don't know if they have any in stock. Call them and ask.
