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?

A good image might fit entirely into the histogram, might not.

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 M2, 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.
