If you look at the sellers feedback over the last 12 months, he only has 2 negative feedbacks. One of these however was for a 'new' Nikon camera which arrived without warranty card or manual. When the purchaser tried to register it with Nikon, he was informed that it was a grey import and didn't therefore carry a warranty. If you decide to purchase from this seller it would be worthwhile checking that the camera is a genuine UK one before parting with your money.

£250 delivered from SLRShop. I've never dealt with them but their reviews look OK. They're an American outfit but do have a shop in London. This is for information only and is not a recommendation. Take all the usual precautions whoever you buy from!!

Here is another possible supplier. Have not used them personally, so need to carry out usual checks before using them.

with regards to the above posting. Still at Amazon through a shop called Top T, they are priced at £316

Reply to a email I sent them. This batch of Canon G12 we have in stock are sourced from Hong Kong with UK adaptors.

Think I will leave them alone.

Another seller to look at is Kerso, a very highly respected dealer at Ebay. Price on ebay is £325 + £10 P&P. I along with many other photographers deal with Kerso, usually direct as this saves Paypals cut as well as Ebay charges. Check him out on google.

To deal direct you can reach him at kerso1123@msn.com Here he will give you a quote. Personnally I've spent several £1000s buying Canon gear from him
