So November 28th Adorama had a deal where you get the following:
Canon T3i and 18-55mm, a 75-300mm a 50mm f/1.8 II, a Slinger Photo Video Bag, a SanDisk 16GB Class 10, a USB 2.0 Secure Digital (SD / SDHC) Reader and a Digital Card Case and a Manfrotto Monopod all for the bargain basement price of $659.
It is a meh deal... not awful... not great. BUT... advertised on the page were the attached images. Notice that the 50mm would be a CRAZY good deal if they sent the 50mm f/1.2L? I thought... hey... maybe if they make one screw up, then they might make two. No... I got the 50mm f/1.8.
So I sent them Adorama an email on on December 4 and then again on the December 5 which read:
Ya'll sent me a different lens than was pictured. Mind providing me an explanation?
I didn't get a response... and I think that's what I'm annoyed about. They could at least do me the courtesy of saying they screwed up and it wouldn't be practical for them to give me a 50mm L, but hey... maybe they try and make it up to me by not ignoring me.
So... is it my own stupid fault or did Adorama maybe defraud their customers... just a little bit and I do have the right to be annoyed?
Don't buy electronic equipment online.
It is a mix bag. At my local camera store they sell generic accessories for ten times what you would pay on eBay or Amazon.
But returns are easier I have bought used gear online and I think that is a much bigger risk than buying new stuff...
