Ritzcamera.com Serious Stock Issues.
Apr 11, 2012
Does anybody else here purchase from Ritzcamera.com or have noticed that they have almost no pro or enthusiast level camera gear in stock?
We have 30 day billing with them which helps with cash flow when we need something for ann upcoming project. Right now waiting on 2 lenses and a body that were ordered 2 weeks ago.

All 4 Sigma's they carry are out of stock Nikon and Canon mount
The Canon Lens are little better but less than 1/3 are in stock
Canon 5D III, 60D, EOS 7D body and 1 of the kits are all out of stock
The only Nikon bodys in stock are the D7000 D5100
No Sony NEX in stock
No FujiFilm X100 and the X1 Pro isn't even being carried
Only 1 of the Olympus E-P3 in stock. No Mico 4/3rd lens in stock.
When you live chat and ask about it they either say 2 to 3 weeks or that they can't give any estimates as to when an item will be back in stock. There isn't even anyway to talk to corporate sales when placing an order because you have to fax in a purchase order.
Are they just about to go completely under? I can't understand it being this hard to control inventory for a major online retailer. Only reason I can think of is that the suppliers are pulling their credit or really lowering it
