I'm trying to get a Nikon D40, and all the following sites have very convenient prices:
the thing is they are selling the camera kits without everyting on it but they don't say that in their websites.... I ordered or trying to order from them and they called me to confirm my order and said that the kit I choose doesn't have the battery and the charger and they can sell them to me at "special price", llike the double of the market. And when you try to buy only that kit (camera and lens only) they just hung up or tell you that the D40 is backordered.
I know they want to compensate the low price of the camera with the accesories, but why the put someting in a website if they don't have the intention of sell it.
As per Nikon website the Nikon D40 Kit, has everyting you need but the memory card, because is an entry level DSLR. So I can imagine that the accesories these stores they are putting on the camera are not the best quality in order to have more profit.
I was just trying to save a few bucks, but honestly I lean my lesson with this scammers.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THIS SITES!!!!!!!!!
A note of warning to all. Broadway Photo is a deceptive advertiser, is guilty of bait and switch big time and did not ship what I ordered. They then treat you like crap when you call, will not refund shipping and will charge you a restocking fee of 5% for sending back a "gray market" camera that was not what you ordered. Incredible that thugs like this continue to do business. I should have been more diligent in checking out their ratings. At reseller.com they rate 0.8 out of 10. Be fore warned, DO NOT TRUST THESE BANDITOS. Pass it on. Boycotting businesses like this is one way to slow them down.
