I have just lost confidence with Canon Rumors & B&H
« on: April 17, 2013, 12:33:34 AM »
I saw the headline "new bigger savings from B&H". The lens I purchased yesterday, the 24-70 f2.8 ii is now $2099 vs $2049 I paid yesterday. How is this better??? My attempt at posting this earlier was blocked.

No I don't think I'm over reacting. I got the lower price and my lens is in transit. I find it offensive that a new "better deal" is being hyped, that is not a better deal, and when I point this out, my post is blocked. Do you understand that logic?

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?

UUUmmm, OOOOk, doesn't seem to be blocked now  :)

Take a Panadol, then your new 24-70f/2.8 L IS II and head out & take some Images, you'll feel a lot better then, it's a great Lens & you got it for about $500 less than I did, well done.

I dont work for CR or B&H, otherwise I'de have got a better deal when I bought my 24-70.

BH Photo guarantee price 30 days after purchase. You just need to contact customer service and they'll refund the different for you.
I bought the 6D and it drops $100 the next day. BHphoto gave me the refund $100. Then 3 days later, it drops another $50. I contact BH again, and they gave me back $50. No question ask.

I do not think anybody is getting the point the OP is trying to make.

He bought it on X for US$ 2049

Then a couple of days later CR runs a campaign promoting savings at B&H for the same lens at US$ 2099.

He is questioning the integrity of the promotion.
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Given that the lens in question is no longer listed I'm betting it was just a typo.

I totally see your point. I would question this also.

Wow, 50$ is a high price to lose your confidence over something.

It appears you folk from Nth America are spoilt for choice,we in Aus would love to have a chain that sells for such low prices and pays you the difference in sales prices,don't think CR is to blame for B&H pricing though,
