    d-d-photographics experiences

    Has anyone had any experiences with shopping with d-d-photographics? They seem to be the only grey importer that has a shopfront (Sydney) and they offer GST back etc.[

    I have purchased several items from DDP when they had an outlet in Brunswick Street, Brisbane and have always been satisfied with their service. DDP replaced a 300mm F4L that was front focusing (within the advertised 7 day period) after they confirmed the problem. Based on my experiences, I would purchase from them again even though the Brisbane outlet is now closed.

    Cheers

    Always had excellent dealings with these guys. Used both the shopfront and online.

    I'd also recommend them. I've bought four bodies, two L's and lots of incidental stuff off them going back to 2006. Only ever had one occasion to complain about a delay, and that was rectified quickly. Also had a body fail within 7 days and that was replaced no questions asked. For stuff in stock, his freight is very quick.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    I agree with all the previous comments. Over the past three years we've spent more than $40k with DD without hassle. Delivery is super fast and one D700 body was ordered at 3pm and arrived 8.30am the next morning. They always carry adequate stock.

    I have had no issues with DD Photographics either. However, I have always purchased at the store front.

    I bought my 7d from them earlier this year and the delivery was right on the outside of the maximum quoted times, arrived without any issues though.

    Only ever picked up, but more than happy to go there again. Bought probably 10+ orders, one return on a flash and that was resolved very quick, from memory assessed, repaired and returned in 1 week, though suggested it would take up to 3 (which is what canon Aus say anyways).
    Using a 7d or a s95

    I've also been happy with DDP... wish they hadn't closed their Brisbane outlet...

    I have to agree with the others, excellent service from DPP, I recently recommended to a friend and he is similarly impressed.

    ^ out of interest Phil, when was the last time you bought something from them?
    Have notice elsewhere some saying delivery is very slow these days. Not that I'd know otherwise!

    I purchased my 300 MM F4 IS L from them, was advised straight up that they had no Aussie stock and where awaiting new stock. They gave me a date, and followed up with emails. They've been fine all the way through so far. I will have the lens on Tuesday. So for me, great.
    They call me "Blue" it's a red head thing.

    Purchased some bits and pieces from their online store before as well, with no dramas
    Cheers, Brad
