BEWARE!! 42nd Street Photo Vendor

Do not buy ANYTHING from this vendor.

They are a smam retailer. Selling Gray market gear that is not covered by a warranty by the manufacturer. They are not a member of the better business bureau. They are not authorized dealers of Sony, Canon, Nikon, and probably not anybody else.

They use bait and switch tactics, among other things.

The article I'm posting is regarding Canon lenses, but this recently applies to a Sony A7r II camera and lenses that I just recently purchased from them:

Now I have to figure out how to get my money refunded and then probably cancel my credit card.
