I've just spent a good half hour in the Preston Wilkinson's store where I was served by a young man called Simon. I was looking at mirrorless cameras and he really couldn't do enough to help. Although I did not buy a camera; my intention was to get information and have a physical look at the options, Simon was really helpful. He went to the trouble of showing me about 6 cameras and explained the pros and cons of the different systems and gave me some printed information to consider. Highly recommended - Thanks.
I have used Wilkinsons Cameras in Preston for a few years now. Having read the reviews already posted, I would have agreed particularly with the one from four years ago, (having been 'treated' to a sales assistant being reprimanded when he was dealing with me - very unprofessional. Fortunately the culprit no longer works for Wilkinsons). Since the change of store management, however, I can only give them a 5 start rating. The whole buying experience has improved no end. I went in to compare a Nikon DSLR and the Olympus OM-D E1. The sales assistant, Michael, was exemplary in his service and attention, gave advice where needed and gave me his personal opinion when asked. As a result I purchased the Olympus kit with the 12/40 Pro lens, The Olympus lens converter, (which they didn't actually have in stock but they were prepared to beat others online prices), and they threw in a UV filter. Five star service and great prices, what more could you want? I think any previous customers who may have been scared away should seriously consider giving them another look.
