    You could try Cambridge , not sure what is still running there at present but there used to be a handful of camera shops there all within walking distance of each other . Think they still got a jessops , and Campkins have served me well in the past .

      Nip across to WEX Photographic in Norwich, I use them on a regular basis and for me it's a 200 mile round trip!!!! Praise where praise is due

          You also have the London Camera Exchange in Lincoln. Bought my 500MM from them and they even carried it to my car!

              Had troubles with WEX in the past , sent me a used Flash instead of a brand new one , and they was not very polite to me when I asked for a replacement , bordered on rude , would think hard before I spent money with them again , I got my 300 2.8 from them as well was very disappointing regarding the customer service with the flash .

                I can't complain about WEX, they once sent me three 16-35 L F4 lenses and had only paid for one . Mind you, having said that they didn't ever thank me for advising them of their mistake!

                  Very honourable of you to tell them they sent an extra two 16-35 F4 L, I would have done the same. If it were a couple of extra 11-24 F4 L, that may have stretched temptation a little!

                    I have used Wex in the past and personally have not had a problem with them. I have also used CameraWorld and found these guys to be quite helpful.

                      I'd recommend Park Cameras for anyone near the South Coast, I used to drive down from Bucks to get stuff. Comprehensive website and free delivery over 50 although I do prefer to be able to see things before buying.

                            I went to Mifsuds while on holiday in Devon, couldn't resist it.

                            Just a delightful little shop, with many hidden treasures on its shelves.
