My experience....

Tuesday 7th August - ordered a 5D3 with three year warranty from Hdew (out of stock) for 2259 + 10 delivery
Friday 10th August - Camera despatched
Monday 13th August - Camera received
Tuesday 14th August - Price dropped by 80 at Hdew website
Wednesday 15th August - Requested refund of difference
Friday 17th August - Refund completed.

The package was shipped from within the UK. The camera is a "European" model and Canon UK will honour the warranty for the first 12 months. After that it is over to third party cover for the next two years. Be sure to request a VAT receipt (I don't know why you need to request one, but that is the advice I've seen) as that is the proof of purchase required by Canon UK to honour the warranty.

Based on my experience I would use them again and recommend them without hesitation. In fact they are my new favourite supplier, with Flashcamera, DigitalRev and Onestop-Digital sharing joint second place. That said, I recently dropped 1,700 with Jessops for a Sigma lens - I shop wherever the bargains are.
