    Hi,

    I find difficult to fine good addresses where to buy Prime Lenses for
    Canon EOS.
    Even Pixmania does not have all of them and seems quite expensive
    compared to US prices.
    I suspect I need to find specialised web-sites. I can also consider
    buying the lens on US sites if it makes up for the price difference.

    Do you have any suggestions ?

    Well the lens are the same between EOS Digital and Analogue.
    There are just a few Digital-specific lenses whose name then begins by
    EFS instead of just EF, but I doubt a shop would be specialised in
    selling the EFS ones.
    I am just looking for good website for the moment, I have not yet
    decided for a specific lens (although the Sigma 15mm f2.8 EX Diagonal
    Fisheye) looks very tempting for both the Digital and Analog cameras).

    If I were you, best to stick to analogue camera's. Far far better.

  6. They may have them listed on the website, but do they actually have them in
    stock ?

  7. Those which are out of stock say "out of stock" :p

    These days 7dayshop don't charge your card till they despatch, and if an
    item is out of stock they give you the opportunity to cancel. Items like
    lenses are sent special delivery, so arrive next day (from despatch).

  8. They must operate a different policy for lenses to the one they use for
    filters then.

    Thanks for your answers.
    I am also wondering some web sites (apart from ebay) where to find
    second-hand lenses.
    Do you know some ?

    Thanks.
