Why bother with DigitalRev when ProCamerashop is cheaper and based in the U.K?
Some cameras… With Canon written on them. Oh, and some lenses… Also with Canon written on them. Oh, and a shiny camera with Fuji written on it too...

Feel free to have a wander round my flickr

Good shout. I like DRev but on the shopping list I'm looking at I would be saving £153 going PCS. I've been watching DRev prices for some time now and yes they are a lot cheaper than UK shops but they are going up.

I've not bought from ProCamerashop anyone have any experience?

Well i just had a less-than-ideal experience myself with my first order to digitalrev...

I decided that for some reason i needed an M3 and a couple lenses.  Don't ask why -- there's not really any sane reason for it.  And unfortunately, digitalrev seems to be the only real game in town for this sort of stuff for USA customers, as far as i can tell.

So i try to place an order, and my creditcard company immediately goes into a fraud-alert frenzy, rejects the transaction, and also places a fraud lock on my card.  Okay, so i eventually get that taken care of with my bank.  And I do eventually manage to place an order for a couple white-box EF-M lenses.  So they show up okay.  One of them was new, and the other one was relatively new but had clearly been mounted on a camera before and the front element had to be cleaned a little.  Well, i guess that's the risks you take with random white-box stuff.

So then a few days later i place a second order (for the M3 itself).  But the next day digitalrev cancels my order because they say they can't verify that my shipping address is legit or something.  But they'd already delivered the first order, and also isn't it just a simple google query these days to see that person X lives at that address, if you have any concerns?

So now digitalrev insists that i send supporting documentation proving that i really live at that address.  Like a copy of driver's license or something.  Well it'll be a cold day in %#%!@ before i send that sort of thing to some random chinese company!

Anyone else had issues ordering from those folks?  Or any suggestions?

I haven't had any problems.  I've used them 2-3 different times.  The tracking they provide is useless, but I've never had any problems getting the order in.
