a question or warning about bestpricecameras.com
Oct 20, 2006

just tired to order a canon 10-22 lens from
bestpricecameras.com.

they send a confirmation asking to phone them with
credit card/information validation.

my question is if anyone has experience with them???

i found the whole situation fishy. no wonder the lens is $559, instead of the average $700 on most websites.

when i called to verify my purchase, they did not confirm having
the item in stock. they first mentioned that there was no warranty

and that a one year warranty would have to be purchased. this did not match what was written on the website (possibly a grey market goods issue as well).

after i would not take the $129 one year warranty, the customer service rep tried to get me to purchase a lens and sun shield.

when i passed on everything, i was forwarded to the shipping department (wink-wink) to find the lens on backorder.

maybe this posting is more of a warning than a question.

whoever reads this far...

maybe the better question is: who in the united states is a reputable, best price dealer of canon dslr lenses.

be forewarned AND any information would kindly be appreciated.

thanks and regards,
jeff
