Seems like the Fuji 9500 is not available in the UK?

Tried to buy, on the web, phoned shops, and the answer is the same, waiting for stock. (Even with wildly different prices)

Anyone in the UK has purchased one or knows if anywhere this can be found?

:?

Yes, thanks. I placed an order from Dabs 3 weeks ago, no sight of it yet. Cancelled order. Pxmania ditto. BTW, Dabs price £400.00 incl Vat. But no product.

Hi pr126-I am not being cynical but Dabs are the cheapest on the internet when they are out of stock--I have some brand new Fuji S9500 for sale at £250 -but sorry,got not in!! When they get them in stock you will find the price climb to about £429 or even higher.Anyone can be the cheapest when they have none.I took 2 back to Jessops incidently for noisy shutter and out of focus,this fault mysteriously appeared after about 100/150 or so shots.I am not the first,nor will I be the last to return faulty UK units.

It looks like Fuji have a few problems on their hands.
Seems like it was pushed out the factory door too hurriedly. Faulty units, not enough stock., and I suppose some bad publicity to follow.
I assume better to wait until they sort this mess out, eh? I wonder if they quietly recalled the stock?
The price differences are quite extensive. Retailers charge what they want.

Let's see what happens.

See comment I did write about them on: http://www.kelkoo.co.uk/ctl/do/maxiMerchantReviews~3636223

Not the only one to recommend them. 92% recommend ratio, pretty good. It's not good luck, it's superior customer service.

That's odd.

I have ordered from Dabs over 3 weeks ago (but cancelled recently) and they still have no stock yet. Oh, well. :?

Anyway, I am looking forward to Cameras2Uhopefully delivering tomorrow. We'll see.

Got mine from Jessops in Kingston (london)for 400 and took the 3 years warranty for another 45 pounds, I took a printout from the dabs offer to the shop, the phoned for autorisation and adjusted the price from 499 to 399. You might try this.
