About Us

Holidays & Reduced Services

Dear clients,

ES Photo is a French-Kiwi family business. We're presently in New Zealand visiting family. While away, we are running the business remotely, and we have a local partner to dispatch orders. However, during this period our delivery time frames will potentially be 2-3 days longer than usual, and unfortunately we cannot welcome you to inspect our lenses in person or to collect orders. Rest assured that we're still available to help you find the perfect lens, and of course for any warranty claims. Please excuse us if we are a little slower to reply - there is a 12 hour time difference relative to Europe. Thanks very much for your understanding, and for your ongoing support of our business!

Best wishes,

Erin Salmon - Manager

While we do not have a retail outlet, you are welcome to come and test and inspect any of our lenses by appointment, in Lyon's 7th arrondissement.

Our primarily online business model allows us to offer a wide range of top quality Canon L-Series lenses, as well as expert advice, while keeping our prices highly competitive.

Questions?

Don't hesistate to get in contact for any reason.

Is the 500mm f4L IS USM easy to use without a tripod?

Conclusion from the ES Photo team: it depends on the size of your baby!

(To answer this question properly, we took both up Le Grand Veymont.)
