Re: E-M1 Mark II £889 brand new!

Canon thankfully provide a worldwide warranty on L series lenses but not on the body, I felt it was a risk worth taking. Anyone ever buy from Kelso (Ian) and know what happened to him?

That was it, Kerso not Kelso. It’s a good few years since I bought anything so that’s my excuse for forgetting, thanks.
I don’t do EBay but might take a look now.

Re: E-M1 Mark II £889 brand new!

My MKII has been delivered already after ordering last Thursday. If I had waited until Monday, I could have got it even cheaper as they are currently doing an extra 5% off site wide making it £845.49.

Re: E-M1 Mark II £889 brand new!

This is very tempting.... I’m now hatching a plan to sell my em10mk2, grip and 17mm f1.8 , not sure on going rates, but that won’t get me even half way.... Christmas not too far off though!

Apparently neither of those sites are available now. The E-M1 MkII is now on sale for £939.99 at the original site discussed, EGlobalCentral.

Note that the HDEW Terms and Conditions state: "When you buy a product from our website,you are buying direct from our supplier.
HDEW Cameras will act as an agent between you and the supplier and your contract will be directly with them.The name and contact details of the supplier will be provided on your invoice."



The supplier will almost certainly be in China

Re: E-M1 Mark II £889 brand new!

The savings are made by dodging paying tax, that liability is the purchaser's not the supplier's so they are in the clear. You will likely get away with it too and after 7 years you will be in the clear!

Re: E-M1 Mark II £889 brand new!

went to a local camera dealer (cameraworld) in stevenage as wanted to try before buying.

cost was higher, but the lens and camera registered ok eventually, was a bit peeved to have a message that the lens was already registered, but seems olympus had a snafu

some of the lens on some of the links here will be worth a look in the future

Re: E-M1 Mark II £889 brand new!

I used HDEW in December to buy a lens. There was no mention on the invoice of a third party as a supplier
