Adorama Email Ad
« on: March 09, 2014, 02:19:00 PM »
Did anyone else notice this in Adorama's email advertisement on March 7th?   :o   I did a double-take on the picture and the price before reading the description above it...   :'(

Adorama needs to STOP this kind error. This is NOT the first time. It is confusing and misleading.

I agree. One day they will make a more serious mistake...

Is this the long rumoured Canon high megapixel camera, or is it Nikon's answer to the 5D3?

I'm confused..... even more so than normal :)
The best camera is the one in your hands

This Adorama error shows that at least one Nikon camera managed to escape the Nikon cliches and express its inner most secret desires: To feel, behave, handle, dress, look and shoot like a top end Canon one  ;D An obvious Cannon wannabe...  ;D ;D ;D

Yeah, once in a while I get these kind of emails, with crazy typos from Adorama ... most of the time Adorama is the first company to send me emails on "special sales" ... I think their marketing dept probably is very eager to be the "first" to send out these "sales promos", which causes them to make mistakes like these.

I'll have to dig up a print brochure they sent me that has Nikon lenses opposite a page with a heading "Nikon" showing someone shooting with a white 70-200L :o

They probably thought they can change the lens mount to fit Nikon DSLRs ;D

It was from another shop, actually, but funny all the same!  I'll have to get a snap of it up here when I have a chance.

Yeah, one sees typos like these every now and then ... I generally ignore them, but sometimes it makes for interesting conversation.
