    I've used the price comparison site before, Britchick told me about it, but I've never used some of the cheaper priced retailers that it comes up with. I tend to stick to the ones I know

    what do you think should i or shouldnt i :)

    Most of our stock does come from the UK, and some do from other countries; all of which are made for UK market. I would like to assure you that all our stock come with UK Specification with 3 pin power plug and English Manual. In addition, all products from SimplyElectronics also come with a 12 month warranty from receipt of the purchase.

    *personally* I wouldn't take the chance. Camera companies are notoriously picky about honouring their warranty on grey market items.

    It's all about price though mate :/ you have to balance the saving v the possibility of failure and having to pay for it to be fixed. For example, if I was buying a 1000 lens and a grey market one was 500, I may take the chance ;-) if it's 50 difference I probably wouldnt
