Fair enough I did my research before buying grey. Bought my Canon 80d grey from HDEW who seem to be a pretty safe bet from the feedback I've seen, and saved over £400. They also operate from a shop so I could go and see people face to face if needed, should a problem arise.Thankfully it went as smoothly as if I had bought non-grey. I went for Tobydeals for this lens as they were cheaper than most. I could have got it a little cheaper, but from a seller for which there wasn't so much feedback available. Tobydeals get more mixed reviews than HDEW, but I took the gamble and all went smoothly. Only issue I have is that they use Yodel to deliver their non-insured items and I would rather gouge my eyes out with a spoon than use Yodel knowingly. So I've saved £450 by "going grey" in the last 2 months and I'm well happy.
I bought a grey import before and it never arrived so vowed I would only buy in the uk - im really happy with the lens!
Wow, I can't believe how much they are new now...I got one a couple of years ago for less than this...Might have been on offer though, can't remember. There's one on WEX for £176. Anyway, I think this is a great lens. I'm only a novice but this was at 12mm on a 7D
