About Us

Holidays & Reduced Services

Dear clients,

ES Photo is closed for a few weeks during the summer. We reopen in the second half of August. We can accept orders during this period, and should be able to give you a specific date for delivery or collection on request. Please don't hesitate to ask!

We can be reached by email during the holidays, and will respond to any warranty claims with the necessary urgency. For everything else, please excuse us if we are a little slower than usual to reply.

Best wishes,

Erin Salmon - Manager

ES Photo SAS is a business created by Erin Salmon, a New Zealander resident since 2014 in Lyon, France. A professional photographer, he has been using Canon equipment for 20 years.

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.

If for any reason you are unsatisfied, you may return your purchase.

Our commitments

  • Our photos are always of the specific example of the lens on sale, and not stock images.

  • Your lens will be delivered promptly, and in the condition described.

  • You have a 14-day right of return, for any reason, including if you change your mind.


Don't hesitate 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!
