RRP is £1999 and this is the lowest it's been since release in July. Not for everyone, but if you're looking for a really great value full-frame SLR this is about as good a price as you'll get.

Yes but Panamoz sell grey imports. I wouldn't let that stop you but you ought to know what you are getting in to.

How about camerahub.co.uk? £1506 on there.

grey imports will always be cheaper, but I've had canon refuse to fix a manufacturing issue with a previous camera from Digitalrev, and when I sent it back to them it took three weeks to repair vs 3 days at Canon. For me, UK stock is worth the extra. YMMV!

There is loads of sites it is cheaper on though, and not just a couple of pound either. I mean £10 cheaper.

Did anyone says Dynamic Range?

Get the exposure right and 11 stops is more than enough. A few years ago you were lucky to have 8.

I thought so as well. When I contacted HDEW regarding a Nikon D500 they told me that I would register the serial number with Nikon UK for the first years warranty (dealt with through HDEW) and years two and three is through HDEW.

Panamoz told me that the warranty works through them and is transferable if you sell the camera.

At HDEW this 6D MKII is £1329 body only.

This is how they responded to someone asking about an Olympus camera....

We do import our stock from outside of the UK, however all of the products we sell are UK specification. Therefore it will have UK plug, instruction manual and will be in PAL.
You will get a three year warranty which covers you for mechanical faults, breakdown, parts and labour and this will be repaired in the UK through an Olympus approved repair centre. The first year of the warranty will be with Olympus and the next two years will be with us as your retailer.
Therefore it is not a 'Grey Import' as it comes with a warranty valid in the UK and is sold to UK specification.
We are VAT registered and we can provide you with a VAT invoice.

Probably the same one who noted 1080p.

Vimes looks like resolved the grey import question ? and with good Trustpilot reviews of Panamoz that price is good value.

You can't expose your subject right when there is a harsh light on the background. I have two 6D and I have struggle with my Raw files and there is no changes in this camera, but Nikon D750 can do...

I have been watching this for a few months and this is the best deal from a reputable distributer add the 3 year accident and Warranty cover for 50 quid and you won't get a better deal at the moment! Grey imports will trip you up and for something this costly it's not worth the risk for most. UK service is great from Canon, I was going to post this I think it's a great deal , check out the other things they have reduced from canon as well

I've just had a chat with Canon UK service centre and HDEW directly and both have confirmed that they're grey importers. Canon UK won't cover repairs under warranty and HDEWs warranty repairs are done by an authorised Canon International centre with several weeks as the turnaround.

That is worth knowing, seems to be different to what I had quoted from what they had posted. Unless it depends on what camera they are selling.?

As noted when I contacted HDEW it was in respect of that Nikon camera and they told me that Nikon would cover it, within the UK.

Whether it would work it that way I wouldn't know and I hadn't thought of confirming with that Nikon, as my plans for a DSLR changed.

In the end I decided to go mirrorless anyway and I bought the camera from John Lewis, with a two years warranty and cash back from Sony.

The lady I spoke to was very nice and very clear. The cameras are still warrantied and by a 'manufacturer certified repairer' but not by the manufacturer themselves as all their cameras are imported which is why they can offer the lower prices. Canon UK confirmed they'll still repair the cameras as they are genuine, but because of the grey issue all repairs are chargeable. If I wasn't using my camera as a semi-pro and could afford to have it away for weeks if something goes wrong or there's a recall I'd use HDEW as her customer service was great. Unfortunately I can't and that's why I grabbed the Amazon deal!

You did well with asking the appropriate questions.

Perhaps, as my initial interest was with the Nikon only tentative, I hadn't bothered going into the detail as that wasn't going to be the clincher on whether I was going to buy the camera or not.
Then I had found the post that I quoted, but at that stage my mind was already moving towards mirrorless and the advantages that they would offered me over that of DSLR.

There was a price difference, and some savings to be made, if I bought my Sony mirrorless from HDEW or the other shop noted but with the current cash back from Sony, and our previous experience of dealing with warranties from John Lewis, buying from them seemed preferred.
Amazon had always given us excellent customer service but they don't seem to match JL's default electrical warranty.
On some items Amazon offer an extended warranty to buy, which is transferable if you sell the item. That is useful and I made use of such a warranty when I sold an NEX camera some years ago.

I don't know if this should be considered but selling gear to MPB, when you are completing your proposal form, you are asked where you bought the items from.
