focus gears for sea and sea dx-200-purchase advice

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

Was looking into buying a Sea and Sea focus gear for a 10-20mm sigma lens from the U.K that would fit a DX-D200. A phone call to Sea and Sea in the Uk tells me that they dont have the part in stock, will deal with trade customers only, and that I would have to go through an underwater camera gear shop. Sea and Sea UK tell me that by going this route that this would take about 6 weeks.

 

A subsequent phone call to a UK underwater camera shop I use regularly for all my underwater bits and bobs- revealed that they did not have this part in stock either and that apparently Sea and Sea are not great at sending such gears from the main manufacturer in Japan.

If I was to order the gear now it would take six weeks minimum- but that it could-in reality- take months-or even a year!!!!

 

Naturally-I'm not too happy about this- I mean- if you order a part from a well known manufacturer's brand such as Sea and Sea- you should get it in a reasonably defined time frame as part of basic sales support yes or am I being naive :P ?? I am inwardly wondering is this a problem for Sea and Sea users in europe in general-or the Uk in particular???

 

As I am based in Ireland- just wondering are there any other options for buying focus gears from sea and sea from elsewhere- that would readily have them in stock, and would ship to Ireland??

Maybe its just my particular case and what I'm looking for.

 

Any insights greatly appreciated.
