Certainly one of the better, more trusted Asian suppliers. They pay import duty/VAT.

btw, if you click on and purchase via the link at the top of this/main pages, CL get a small commision which helps keep the site going. :wink: (doesn't add anything on to your price either)

My experience has been good - VERY good... My only complaint was that I didnt know that Camera Labs had a sponsored link (I bought my gear before there was a sponsorship)

One of the nice touches Digital Rev do when you buy lenses and bodies is offer their own warranty card thats related to your country - so you can make the claim in your own country, send it there and they take care of the international shipping.

BUT you have to ship it, I still dont think they have face to face locations to pick up and drop off - Just as long as your shipping has tracking, you will never lose your items and most of all - the shipping is free for major items AND if you use the website - you can track the items (the ebay store can sometimes have beter prices but only by a tiny margin.)

In recent months I've purchased three Canon L lens and a Manfretto tripod (all linked from the cameralabs site) from digitalrev. Prices are keen, the handling of GST (VAT) and duties is a bonus. Goods arrive into Melbourne in about three days. The items are well packed and in excellent condition.

Have had similar experience with B & H can't say one better than the other. B & H stock Think Tank gear that Digitalrev don't. So my last purchase was from B & H but i'd buy again from digitalrev if they have what i want.

Would certainly recommend digitalrev if you are happy buying online.
