over reacting much?
Those are pretty reasonable deals from arguably the most reputable dealer in the US. I don't see the harm in reporting decent (albeit not great) deals. Especially when many of us are always on the lookout for our next piece of glass.
Again, I got the lower price. That is not what this is about.
Good for you. I got the 85mm f/1.2L II for $1,799 earlier this year, and you don't see me griping about losing confidence in this forum or B&H. It's economics 101... Prices change on a daily basis.
Again, those are fairly reasonable prices, and I'm glad they were posted. Be glad you already got a good deal and leave it at that.
Not one single person is listening to what I am saying. I GOT the lower price. My lens was paid for at the lower price & will arrive Thursday. I found it offensive that the price was marked up, hyped as lower, my post pointing this out was blocked. Do you all work for cr rumors & B&H? Or is there someone else that finds raising prices and advertising it as the best deal offensive?
I'm listening to your point entirely, and as I've already asserted, you're overreacting. In checking B&H's website, the 24-70mm f/2.8 II is $2,049. Exactly what it was three weeks ago when I purchased it and exactly what you claim to have paid. But according to your logic, I should be insulted by CR posting a price that isn't lower. Oh wait, CR didn't post the price for the 24-70mm f/2.8L II. So what exactly is your complaint?
But I get it... you're one of those entitled folk that thinks CR owes you something for visiting this site. As neuro has already stated, it would be better for all of us if you would just delete your account instead of whining about marginal (or in this case, non existent) lens sale price differences.
I suggest you do what I did with my 24-70mm ii when I got it: Go out and use it, and quit your complaining.
