Vistek - legitimate or no?
« on: August 02, 2013, 09:50:40 PM »
They have some notably good prices on a few things I want; Anyone shop from them?  Do they sell entirely new stuff with warranty or is it refurbs?

Jim
I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

New stuff (with warranty). No problem with Vistek.

They're a well-known Canadian photo chain store, with a good reputation.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Alright, good to hear it - particularly from someone with more than 1 post.  I don't mind driving to their nearest shop and dealing face-to-face though.  I'll let you all know how it goes.

Very legit, one of the major Canadian photo retailers. Bought my T4i there.

I'm fortunate enough to live within a short drive to one of their stores. They are very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
