    They have a policy of not taking grey.

    When a work colleague asked a year or so ago, they said no. The camera was from HDEW, but I am sure I have seen a thread where they did take a D750 which was an import

    Have you asked to see what they say?

    I have not asked yet, but will call them. Just thought I would ask here and see if anyone had any experience.

    Always worth a try tho.

    They told me they don't take grey but I was watching a 7DII on here a few months ago that was and the seller withdrew it as MPB bought it.

    That's weird, last year I asked for a quote for a D810 I was selling, they quoted such a good price, more or less what I paid for it, I asked them to confirm they were happy with it being a grey import. They said as long as it's in the sate described they would and they did, so they must have changed policy recently.

    They purchased my 5DSr off me just over a year ago and had no problem with it being a grey,even sent them the receipt from Panamoz.
    They must of changed the way they do things now i guess.

    Never been asked when I've traded in, I will say that I'd say I've received kit from them that was clearly grey (US Packaging or Asian Language)

    Ive sold stuff before and was asked where it was sourced from. Always said I’d purchased used. Had heard they won’t take grey stuff, but don’t see any issues if you don’t know/say where it came from originally.

    My 7D is grey and I was offered £300 for it a few months ago by MPB. I told them it was grey.

    I think WEX might be a different matter.

    I was also wondering as I am considering trading up to a 7D mkII.

    Looking at their terms & conditions I found this:

    So I would presume they do indeed accept Grey items.

    They just don't want to become embroiled in a law suit for VAT avoidance is all that says.

    Standard practice.

    From memory - they normally let you get all the way through the process before finally asking and then tell you they don't take grey products.

    That happened to me a few years ago. Not sure if anything has changed recently?

    So when they buy/sell 'grey' equipment do they do so at a reduced price or does it make no difference?

    Looking at their site I would think it makes no difference - they price based on condition of the equipment.

    Well the price they paid me for my Canon M5 kit (UK sourced) was more than I could have bought it for new (Grey) at the time.

    Maybe I should just give up work and buy Grey kit then just flog it straight on to MPB at a profit. Easy money :)
