Adorama : Less than truthful experience
Eric Boe , April 16, 2002; 10:02 P.M.

I called last Wednesday (4/10) to order a Leica O Series camera for $899.95 as listed on their website. They said they had none in stock. I observed Thursday that they were selling the Leica O Series for $1495.00 on ebay-buy it now. I felt like I wasn't told the whole truth when they said they had none in stock. I did manage to find one in Los Angeles, but at a higher price of $1095 + tax. Lesson learned, profit rules.

I just received my June 2002 Shutterbug Ads. Sure enough, Leica O-Series listed for $899.95. Too bad they don't honor their prices.

right, Why would they sell Leica camera to Eric if they can make some extra bucks on ebay?
Anyway, Adorama is now in my black list.
