Re: HDEW..Ridiculous price.

eBay protections are now very good for the buyer, and you can pay by CC via PP.
The Swiss have an FTA with the EU (least till Brexit) so no tax liability to you.
I think HDEW may not pay the duty which is actually your responsibility, but I think we have been here before!

Anyway I thought you were looking for cheap cheap rather than warranties et al!

Not at all, my 'go-to' dealer is WEX.

I'm looking for a 'fair' price from a reliable dealer, WEX are now asking 499

I like to feel 'comfortable' about a purchase.

I'll chime in with support for HDEW, I've used them a few times over the years and have found them helpful - and very cheap!

Re: HDEW..Ridiculous price.

I have read this thread with interest as I am looking for a 300mm F4 Pro. Retail 2299. Harrison Cameras 2099, which is the cheapest offical UK Olympus dealer I can find. Cotswold Cameras 1749 and HDEW 1699. Both are grey imports. Cotswold Cameras offer a 3yr warranty whereas HDEW only offer 1 year. It is very tempting when you can save 550 off the retail price. The trust pilot reports appear good.
I seen some comments regarding HDEW but has anybody used Cotswold Cameras?

Re: HDEW..Ridiculous price.

I bought my 300/4 from HDEW. It developed a problem during the guarantee period and was quickly repaired. I'd happily use them again.
