Even the SB-5000 is available.


I don't think it's official that Nikon will not make flashes in the future, but at least here in Sweden, there is no shortage and it seems that you can buy them in UK also.

Photospecialist isn't UK based it's in the Netherlands and their reputation is pretty damn bad. The Onbuy.com store isn't UK based either and it has no customer service at all except a chat robot. The chat robot is all you can talk to or contact if you get any problems with your order or the product if you even receive it. Plus I did some investigation and it seems the site has used Trustpilot to generate lots and lots of fake positive reviews for itself and that a lot aren't genuine customers. This is something a lot of scammers do too when they start their own sites, make lots of fake reviews to gain people's trust. Hell even the mighty Gordon Ramsey found out that one restaurant he was about to help during hsi Kitchen Nightmares era had written fake reviews to boost customers to the restaurant.

MPB are the only UK based company but their equipment is used, when I said you can't buy Nikon flash units in the UK anymore I mean not brand new from UK based retail stores. You can buy them used I already knew that but MPB is no better to buy from than Ebay if the Ebay member has thousands of 100% feedback.

The only one which is UK based is Wex, i've bought from them a lot but the Nikon flashes are out of stock.
