I just bought one on a card I never use.....Just to see what happens. The worst thing is they scam my cc company but who knows, maybe in two weeks a new 300 2.8 IS will show up at my door. Either way I am protected by my credit card company. Of course its not legit, maybe they hijacked a Canon container off a ship but if I get a 7K lens for 1K....I will be smiling...

How the heck are people landing on these sites?

There's no price shopping to be done on new Canon equipment.

At all.

EVER.

If you in fact clicked the button, congratulations, you just gave yourself a whole bunch of frustration. Have fun sorting things out and getting your credit card company to reverse the $1,000+ charge.

:rolleyes:

Hardly. If its fraudulent its dealt with immediately and my CC company makes it disappear. The worst think that will happen is my card is jacked and its a card I never use anyway so who cares.

I truly hope to receive the lens but honestly I doubt I will.....If I get it, do you want it for half price-retail, $3500?

Heh, I have to admit I am in the same boat, and was really tempted. I figured it might make a mess for my credit card company though, and didn't want to get into the middle of the mess. Thanks for taking one for the team, hope to hear the end results, delivered or not.

Certainly the CC company will reverse the fraudulent charge, but it's a fact that you're going to have to go that route, so why mess with it in the first place? There is zero chance that you're going to get a new Canon 300 2.8 IS II lens for $1,100. You can dream about it all day long, but it just isn't going to happen.

I am anxious to hear what happens though -- will certainly check back to see!

$1000 is insanely far below dealer cost for it any country so there is zero chance he gets anything but a stolen CC unless the lens was stolen and they actually ship him a stolen copy

Not a snowball's chance in hell that that's a legit offer; even the image is lifted from Adorama.

Those people can clone anything, It will look real, it will work but the IQ will be noticeable to a trained eye. My eye is still training....
On the other hand, if you don't like it, list it on Ebay under an auction for what you paid and you'll make money.
No loss to you, very little risk too...

I have a good friend that wholesales new & used Fine watches, He says he sometimes gets Fake Rolexes that he can't tell the difference, till his watchmaker gets inside the watch.

But I too am eagerly waiting pictures of what you receive.

you actually think he's going to get a knock-off lens?...there's maybe 1% chance of even that happening...with 0% chance of actually getting the lens...

i think the only knock-off that companies were able to produce was the canon lens mugs...they don't make knock off lenses...

Kronie, is knowingly buying something that he will never recieve, but secure in the knowledge that the cost will be absorbed by the credit card company, and passed on to the consumer. If by some miracle he does recieve some inferior lens with plastic optics and white painted cardbord tubes he will be tempted to sell it on ebay to some rube that also thinks he can get a $7000 lens for $1000. By buying this crap, kronie is encouraging and enabling the rip off artists in china and elsewhere to perpetuate this cycle. Great... -rick
