But like mentioned in another threads for example, warranty is not the same when buying Adorama stuff from Amzon vs buying directly from Adorama. Atleast that is my understanding.

It should be the same!!! If you have another experience, please email me: Helen@adorama.com

Instead of monitoring what is been saying in this forum.
why not resolved other customer that has issued that had order online on your website. because your online support
need training. So you need to spend more time training your online support instead. :lol::lol::lol:

I understand the price change but when I call them directly they lied to me and said there where no posting through amazon at all for $7,999.99. just tell me the truth about you pulling the ad and the price change.

Once they lied to me I will not trust them and buying anything from them. Will shop at B&H Photo

This is what the "screen capture" option on your computer is for. . If you had done a screen capture of that ad, and made sure to include the full web address at the top, and told them that you have this documentation, then perhaps things would have gone differently for you. . Probably not ....... but at least you would have given yourself a chance to show the Adorama phone employee that they really did used to have a 400 f2.8 for that price.

A screen capture takes about a second and a half to do - what's to lose? . Whenever I see something online that I think might be changed or removed, I do a quick screen capture to make sure it is preserved - this even includes many people's posts here on POTN!

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Helen you need to stop been rude to people.

I can't believe I am seeing this. Helen is one of the most respected people here. She is always completely honest and completely helpful and goes beyond the call of duty to make sure that Adorama customers and potential Adorama customers are treated wonderfully. She wasn't rude to ANYONE in this thread, so why on earth did you accuse her of being so?

.

The short exchange below just goes to show that Helen is on OUR side - the customer's side, when it comes to Adorama policies:

At this point, I think it would be wholly and completely appropriate for Adorama and Helen Oster to simply write you off as one of those customers who will never be pleased with anything the organization does to rectify the situation. I work in direct customer service. Sometimes we just have to accept that a customer doesn't actually WANT satisfaction, they only want to COMPLAIN that they are not satisfied. Nobody wants or needs a rude, obnoxious, complaining customer who refuses to be satisfied. The time wasted in these types of situations can be better spent helping those with legitimate complaints who are striving to work with the providers to rectify the situation. If you were in my workplace, I promise you that you'd already be getting service from me that constituted the absolute minimum I could do for you and still be thought of (by co-workers and superiors, not you) as doing my job.

Why not waffle less and make the purchase? You just let somebody else get the lens before you. You fall to recognize this fact.

Yes, sir. I certainly do need to be retrained.

I need to be retrained because you:
1.) posted a thread with a completely false title.
2.) refuse to comply with rules for getting what you want.
3.) refuse to believe that you are contributing to your own dilemma.
4.) insult and belittle those who are honestly trying to help you.
5.) continue to complain about the service you didn't get here, after you've already gone elsewhere to get what you want.
6.) continue to make negative, disparaging comments in other threads you start.

I will seek retraining immediately. Please do us all the favor of holding your breath until my retraining is complete.
