Re: On the verge of buying one - update

In the mean time I contacted the seller on eBay (see my previous post).
He confirmed that the seller on Alibaba (Shenzhen Kaichengyi Mould Product Co., Ltd. a.k.a. hkmeikon) is the actual manufacturer of Meikon housings.

The price for the housing by both sellers is close - 149 vs. 145 USD. The significant difference is in the DHL shipping price, eBay seller being heavily more expensive. As alternative the eBay seller offers Hong Kong Speedpost which is 25 USD higher, but it complicates things when it arrives to my country.

I have decided to wait until Chinese New Year holidays are over to get shipping price and conditions confirmed by the Alibaba seller.
Frankly, I'm inclined toward the eBay seller simply because of the security but possible customs complications drive me off. If the Alibaba seller does not accept Escrow payment, eBay will win.
I'll keep posting updates.

P.S. Once I get my hands on the housing I will write a small review. I am going to a trip with some diving next month, hopefully with RX100 and will post the impressions.
