    Default Anyone purchased from here before? (DSLR)

    Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a Nikon D5100 and this seems to be the cheapest place going (Portus Digital) I've never come across this company before so just thought I would ask if anyone has used them before?

    Here's a link too: http://www.portusdigital.com/nikon-d...m-vr-lens.html

    Thanks for any help!

    Do lots of research. If the deal is too good to be true then it often is. This http://whois.domaintools.com/portusdigital.com appears to show that they are Canadian - not sure what your vat liability would be, or your warranty. If the warranty is with the supplier you would have to ship it back to them which could be a pain. I looked hard at another similarly priced company and found some internet evidence of grey imports and fake serial numbers.

    It's not much more from a reputable UK seller: http://www.wexphotographic.com/buy-n...-lens/p1525134

    Ask them the country of origin and if it is in this country 'duty paid' and see what they say

    Hadn't noticed the cash back - with the spare battery bundle that's a good price.

    Same here - very simple to use - but starting to experiment with some of the the more technical facilities on it - and looking for a telephoto lense
