Best Buy Big Sale on Lenses

These prices are not bad.

Has anyone bought lenses from Best Buy before, and how is their return policy if the lens is not sharp?

They are pretty good and don't give you trouble at all taking items back even those bought from their online store.  I don't think they even even have a shutter count limit on high end bodies.

Been waiting for the 100L price to come down, looks like I will finally take the plunge.  Means a new body will have to wait Til next year

I tried to order the ef 24-70mm 2.8, but they aren't available in Florida, apparently.  Not available for shipping, only in-store.

If I could buy from BB here in FL, after taxes, the savings = $100 over the big online stores as of 9/30/2013.

I would have been happy to walk in and pick up rather than see what UPS has done to the box this time.

We've purchased 3 of our ff cameras, and several lenses from best buy.  I have been VERY pleased with the service, and returns have not been an issue when we returned our 100mm for the 100L.

Keep in mind, they've changed some of their policies, so read up.(nothing big, but only 15 days to return instead of 30, tiered membership "levels" and so on).

It's nice to have a store you can walk into if something is wrong/you need something real quick.  Plus they price match a lot of online competitors, including amazon...

Thanks for the policy heads-up.
