I don't know exactly which configuration you're looking at but isn't the basic setup only about £375 anyway?
Personally I wouldn't risk that kind of money on an overseas purchase. I think the most I've ever spent has been probably on a rare Blu-Ray from Japan at about £150. Or possibly some vinyl from the states at a similar value.
Even if I was covered, the pain and time to recover my losses would be too much for me to bear to be honest.
Look at it this way; if it doesn't live up to your expectations for whatever reason, do you really want the hassle of sending it back to China?
Those Emonda SLR framesets are super pricy upfront so it seems like a decent enough deal. If you can get back the money required for the repair then I'd call that fair game, maybe a bit more for your inconvenience. Definitely make sure there are no other issues, but I'd go ahead.
Yeah good point, I hadn’t even considered having to send it back if there was a problem, way too much hassle. Thanks!
Brand new them.
