UK Used Canon Dealers
« on: March 24, 2014, 04:57:29 AM »
I am scheduled to be back in the UK from early July to early/mid-August for work and to see family etc., and was wondering if anyone can recommend any reputable camera shops around the London (and Berkshire etc) area that buy second hand bodies and lenses as am thinking of offloading a few things to consolidate them into something more substantial.

All of the items are registered with Canon and some were bought directly from Canon (here in SE Asia), most with receipts and all in excellent condition.

I do not have an ebay account and as such do not fancy setting one up as I would not have any history etc which may put some buyers off etc.

Thoughts?

I sell on Amazon all the time... I'm sure there is a seller's section for the uk.  Be detailed, provide pictures and send quickly and we'll projected.

Thanks, will look into it.

Funny you should mention them as I was looking at their website earlier in the day. I just was not sure how reputable they are, so your recommendation is appreciated. Thanks.

I bought from MPB many years ago, they are/were very reputable with a vast range of equipment, literally a sizable warehouse full.

I also used and recommend WEX Photographic, but again it has been years since I used them.
The best time to plant a tree is twenty-five years ago. The second best time is today.

I do not have too much to sell, but figured I may get a little more in the UK than I will here in Asia. Will see. Cheers.

The highest prices I ever got for second hand gear was in Vietnam, by a long way. When I was working there in 2005 the EOS 1 was selling for over $1,000 when it would get a few hundred in the USA.

Funny how the world works. I had never thought of even considering Vietnam, but am there quite often (much more than the UK) so will have to take a look.
