Generally camera stuff from Hong Kong is cheaper because it's sourced in Asian markets at less than the UK RRP and then there may be differences with paying import taxes (VAT and duty).
You often get non-UK plugs and adapters etc. and you will generally not be able to register or claim on an official manufacturer warranty.
The better grey importers provide their own warranty services.

There are some grey importers who are reputed to be good and some who are not. I have heard good things about Panamoz and DigitalRev but never used them.

This isn't encouraging about eGlobal.
