    anyone use "becextech.com.au"?

    Howdy all.

    Been hunting around wanting to add a D500 to the arsenal and the difference in pricing is huge between the "official" and "unofficial" product...

    Aussie stock is anywhere from 3000-3200 and I can get it grey for 2094 at the above mentioned... other grey mobs that I have used in the past (DWI) is 2279 which is still a heck of a lot better than walking into a shop...

    As much as I want to support our Aussie businesses I can't afford to throw a grand away just for the heck of it...

    So has anyone had experience with Becex or should I just stick with what I know and trust at DWI?

    Thanks!

    I've had no issues with DCW. Even got a prompt refund when they couldn't supply the order on time. Don't know if you've checked their pricing. Used DWI once and not used becextech.

    I've been keeping my eye out for D500 sales, but it looks as though only the models reportedly soon to be refreshed are on sale. I'm going to wait for the end of calendar year sales to start, I'm sure Amazon will also be having an impact on the Australian market by then also.

    Good luck with your purchase!

    Thanks Spearmint... yeah I reckon Amazon will knock quite a few shops out of business... BUT I also think it is the importers (the actual producers) who have to carry the weight on that by not working with the Aussie sellers in a world market... it's as though they actually want the Aussie businesses to fall over

    And I think the locals are also banking on the GST threshold for imports to go, so I doubt aussie pricing will get any cheaper for some time.

    that GST threshold will do nothing to help when the pries are so massively different...

    if a D500 was 2100 grey market and 2300 in an Oz shop I would go in and buy it from the Oz shop...

    but someone, somewhere is making a massive markup and playing the aussie consumers for suckers

    Re: anyone use "becextech.com.au"?

    I see a few are now showing on eBay with the 20% off sale

    Teds Cameras

    $3,199.95 - 20% = $2,559.96



    Dick Smiths (Grey Market)

    $2,573.99 - 20% = $2,059.19


    Plus if you use Cashrewards, you'll get an additional 1.3% off the original price.

    Re: anyone use "becextech.com.au"?

    Thanks Spearmint... both of them are good prices...

    Teds at 3200 is a joke, I have no idea how they sell any when most of the Aussie stock seems to be at 3k

    Dick Smith is a possibility though!

    I recently purchased my new Camera etc from Bectech Australia and had no problem with the purchase.
    They are a tad slow in answering e-mails but usually do within 12 hrs.
    The part i like is being able to pay with bank transfer instead of putting credit card details on line.

    Re: anyone use "becextech.com.au"?

    I recently purchased a Nikon D810 plus 2 new lenses - I also wish to support Aussie businesses so I went with Becextech Australia ( Melbourne) thinking it was a local Agency/Franchise.
    Surprise surprise - packed and posted from Hong Kong. It is only an Australian Office Front - not a warehouse etc
