Neither - I'd buy from DigitalRev instead. No point paying a grand for a lens if you can get it for £800 instead.

​Thanks. the not even 10% price difference in the lens I'm interested in, for me isn't forth the non eu warranty, the chance of needing to pay customs and mainly as the question suggests, not being able to walk into the store and test before buy. So for this one I will stick with Jessops or Calumet....so....is there a difference between the two?

With Calumet you can trade in an old lens to get the price of the new lens down a bit. I also think they do 12 months interest free on lenses over £1k.
Hope this helps.
