Buyer Beware Best Price

They called me later to see if I wanted the filters with it; and then tried to give me a story that I had to have filters for the lens to give good quality, and preferably the more expensive 'professional' filters. They then tried to push the extended warranty on me. I declined all this. He then summed up the order and said my cost was $1450. I pointed out that the order online cost was about $1135 and questioned the additional $300 or so. He said this was not an option and was for 'insurance'. I cancelled the order - hope they do not still try to screw me as I ordered with my credit card.

With a few very noticable exceptions, if something costs less than B&H or Adorama want to charge, I view it as a fraud/scam/misrepresentation waiting to happen.

Shady sales people, mis-representation, and oh the joy of "buyers Remorse"! Ask me how I feel about them...go ahead, ask...I dare ya!
A good rule of thumb...check out what you want from B&H. If the price you find is "too good to be true"...IT IS.
