I recently ordered a D70s body on line for a very good price. During the sale, I found out why the price was so good. The salesman started trying to sell me lenses, batteries, etc. for outrageous prices, so much so that the overall price of the system was not such a good deal. I refused and he told me the camera would be useless without these items (like I couldn�t figure that out) and when I told him I already had these items, he proceeded to call me a liar. By all good measures I should have hung up on him, but I was so POed that I told him I wanted the camera anyway. He reluctantly took my order and gave me an order number, but didn�t ask for a shipping address. Then he told me it was on back order until after the first of the year. After I cooled off, I got to thinking that maybe he didn�t even take the order, so I called back. This time I got a different salesman, but just as arrogant. He confirmed that the order had been taken and that it was indeed on backorder but should be shipped out in a week or so. He then stated in on the same thing as the first salesman. After I finally convinced him I could use the camera without any additional parts (without calling me a liar), he told me the camera would be useless to me because it was a Japanese model not a USA model (trying to switch me over to a more expensive USA model). By now, I am so tired of having smoke blown in my ear, I told him I could speak Japanese (If I am going to be called a liar, I might as well be one!). He still did not ask for any shipping info, so I volunteered it. He said that they would get that information when the camera came in and they would call me and confirm that I still wanted it. Now I know what is coming. My question is, have I screwed up (I can still back out)? Is there really a difference between a Japanese model and a US Model?
