    Has anyone used this shop?

    Any comments if so?

    A bit pricey fpr postage on small/cheap items but they seem OK otherwise. I bought a Rollei from them and it needed repair which they did free of charge.

    There was some confusion with an order I had with them a couple of years ago, but things got sorted out in the end. Better than another fairly well known classic camera dealer I've dealt with.

    I would certainly consider buying from MW again, but their use of DHL couriers for everything can make the min £10 delivery costs seem a bit steep for low value items.

    Thank you chaps. Just used them.

    Luckily [!] it wasn't a cheap item...

    I've bought several thousand pounds' worth of stuff off them, over the years, with complete satisfaction BUT ....

    I ordered some Topcon bits off them, early in December. My cheque cleared my account on 17th December. Despite five emails and two phone calls to David, I've still (last day of January) not received my purchases.

    Sadly, something appears to have changed.

    Sorry, Steve .... just venting my frustration.

    Take comfort from the fact that they have received positive feedback on ebay, over recent days.
