cheap EOS products at A & M Photo World

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by simon_zheng, Apr 29, 2004.

  1. I'm looking to buy a bunch of EOS products like the Canon 10D and
    maybe 70-200 IS. The prices I saw are very low, which makes it
    kinda suspicious. I wasn't able to find more than 1 review on-line
    about the store and the feedback wasn't very good. Did anybody have
    experience buying products (especially Canon EOS) from them and
    what's your experience?
    Thanks!

    You're joking of course, right?

  3. Go to B & H, KEH, Adorama or Hunt's. Those prices are what you are going to pay. Everyone else who appears to be lower is probably playing a game of some sort.
     
  4. Apparently I should've spent more than 2 minutes searching on yahoo for this store's rating :) Thanks for the info. Looks like a store I need to stay as far away as I possibly can.
     
  5. Simon,

    On the main photo.net page there's a box that has what I would call trusted vendors. If you choose one of them you're not only going to be sure of a good transaction, but you'll also be helping photo.net via referal moneys.
     
  6. Glad you asked. I was 100% suspicious about this dealer and decided to order a Canon 10d at the advertised price of $899 or so. I also ordered a 550ex flash from them, in case they would try and upsell me. When I get their traditional email to verify the order, they did just that, try to get me to buy a battery at a whopping $70. Also they said the camera is grey market, which means, according to them, will be shipped from Japan and would take 4-6 weeks. If that's not enough, they said the camera is not NTSC, it's PAL. (which only means that you can't play your images on TV in USA with PAL) I said no to all their tricks and soon got an email stating the camera is not in stock.

    Yes they are a fraud, stay away.
