The use of the word "were" is correct. You just cited the wrong rule of grammar.

Precisely!

However, he got wood TWICE! That cannot be a coincidence where 2 guys returned 5dMKIIIs to Dell and with wood and that both the times, the OP was the one to get that particular returned camera with wood.

Oh, didn't ready that part.

That defies probability of blame on Dell's part.

In IT; we commonly describe a problem as lying "somewhere between the keyboard and the chair ... I'm not saying where, just somewhere.".

so... no serial numbers from the op?

though chances are slim it may help catch the culprit.

Some of the serial numbers are posted on one of the other sites.

What's up people?

I've been working with Dell and they gave me a discount on the camera. Although the discount puts the camera lower then other retailers, it's not by a huge margin, and given the sh!t I've been through, I also asked for them to include a coupon as well. They're having the distributor check the box before it ships, and hopefully if all goes well, it'll go out today and I'll have it tomorrow.

Knock on wood!!!

:cool::lol:

So, you'll end up with 3 5DIII's for less than the price of one? Nice!

Hey Jalal, your story seems to have caught the attention of other sites :)

I saw this link on PhotoLife Magazine's facebook page. Someone wrote an article about you!
