"Make sure you are dealing with reputable stores! I was scammed into believing there was a new version of the Nikon lens I was buying and agreed to an upgrade of both the lense and filter. They sold me the advertised lens for $120 more than it was listed and a $49 listed filter for $99. If it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is! I chalk this up to being a dumb consumer! Do not trust these scammers and stay with the reputable sellers!"
""Lenses N' More" seems to be the new name for Express Cameras (search for them, you'll see). Either that, or Lenses N' More is using the EXACT same scam. Ordered the Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS USM last Friday, at $1189 with free shipping. On SUNDAY I get a call, "we need your CVVM number". I didn't think much of it, gave it to him. Then he started talking about how Canon makes a "plastic mount" and "metal mount" version and this is the plastic mount one that "WILL BREAK". He wanted to upsell to a $2500 "metal mount" version of the same lens. I was driving so I told him to hold the order (I had spent 3 hours researching this awesome lens with NO mention ANYWHERE of any problems)... called my friend who works at Norman Camera and he said, "oh yeah that's a scam". I guess either they talk you into buying a "Sigma" lens that usually sells for $450, but you pay $1250... either that or they end up sending you a grey market lens. Luckily they haven't charged anything yet, so I ended up cancelling my credit card (what a PITA, have to wait 10 days to get a new one). Stay away from this company! UPDATE: 11/21 10:15am PST: Just got off the phone to explain to him that I wanted to cancel the order. He said, "great I'll just charge you for the cancellation fee". I told him good luck since I cancelled my card. He said, "fine so I'll send you to collections and sue you". Laughable. These guys are real creeps, obviously stay away."
