BG-E11 ... available anywhere reputable?
« on: June 11, 2012, 12:31:46 AM »
I'm looking to snag a BG-E11, but the big guys all seem to be sold out (Adorama, BH, Amazon, etc.).  There are a bunch of random shops that claim to have it in stock - but I've never dealt with any of them, and the majority seem to have hit-or-miss experiences in their Google reviews.

Should I trust these small guys, or wait for the big names to get more stock in?

Got mine from Unique Photo @ a low price ($319). They still have them in stock now @ $329. Nothing bad to say about them so far, quick service, original un-opened product:

+1

I also went with Unique at the same price. First, I emailed them to make sure their "In Stock" status was accurate. They replied within an hour saying it was really in stock, so I cancelled my B&H order and ordered from Unique, and it shipped the same day.

I share the skepticism of the somewhat shady online shops with suspicious prices, and I tend to shop at B&H, but Unique Photo has proven themselves to me.

+2 or whatever. I ordered thru Unique and paid $319 and it was shipped the next morning. I'd use them again.

For the UK - Jessops and others like 1stcameras should be getting some around 22nd June roughly - the big sellers should be getting a date from Canon (who do a Next Day to the seller, so the seller can then know when they can ship to customers).

Looking at this list:

http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/03876/Canon-BG-E11-Battery-Grip-for-5D-Mark-III-price.html

BuyDig has in stock for $339, as does Abe's (for $334, if you can survive their upsell call). All the merchants on that list are pretty "major" ones.
