I've have a friend who is interested in purchasing an Arca camera who asked my recommendation (as I bought one 12 months ago) from who to best place their order with. My recommendation was the UK dealer I purchased mine through but my friend has come back to be asking about arcashop.de based in Germany.

The prices do seem quite significantly cheaper than the UK dealer, their website is very informative and they even offer a 3% discount if payed in full at the time of order (rather than when ready to dispatch). Its not a sales tax thing as UK is 20%, Germany 19% and my friend would be tax exempt as its a business purchase through his company.

Does anyone have experience purchasing from arcashop.de from outside Germany?
