Canon 6D Purchase Help

Postby ian.bertram on Mon May 06, 2013 2:32 pm

Hi all,
As per a previous post (thanks for all the very helpful replies) I am soon to purchase a 6D with 24-105 F4L.
My dilemma is that I really no longer have a 'local' camera shop. I used to go to one shop for all my needs- they knew me and I could always rely on good service, knowledgable advice and good prices. They've gone (or at least they are now just an online presence).

Looking around shops and online stores, the sorts of prices I'm getting are:

Foto Friends: $3153
Camerahouse: $3099
Digital Camera Warehouse: $3047
Paxtons: $2999.95
Camerastore.com.au (yes online, but full Australian warranty): $2699
Digital Discount Photographics (online): $2238 (but it's a grey box import)

I want Australian warranty, so I'm leaning towards camerastore.com.au. Has anyone dealt with this company, or have you had a great experience with someone else. I live in Sydney's South West (Panania, it's near Bankstown/Liverpool/Menia)- doesn't really matter for online of course.

Thanks in advance.
Ian

Sorry Ian - I havn't - whenever I've bought online I've gone grey (e.g. for accesories, lenses, etc)

A colleague at work tells me
he buys his gear from them and they are good.

Thanks for the reply. The prices from Digital World are certainly exceptional- I guess my only issue with these types of sites is genuine Australian Canon warranty. I like the price, I'm just not completely comfortable forking out this sort of money and then having an issue. Has anyone had any experience utilising grey box warranties?

You will find that at the bottom of the page they explain the warranty.
