So I started saving for the 50d but it seamed every time I came up with the money the damn price would up !! This happen three times to me in the last few weeks! Finally yesterday I had enough to get it but was pretty po'd I missed out on the deals at legit dealers.
After careful consideration and research I decided it was just better to buy from amazon or someone reliable then go through hell with one of these n.y. discount stores!
This is were it gets good! I guess all of the back and forth was driving my better half nuts, so she said, "why don't you just get the 40d and next year get the 1d." After picking my self up off the floor, I asked her are you sure? I was getting the 50d because I figured you didn't want me to keep upgrading (coming from an xt).
Now for the rant. My Circuit city had the 40d nib for the same price as amazon + tax. So I figured it was worth the extra dough just to have it in my hands in minutes.
They had one box left with cc tape across the box sealing it close, So i asked the guy, "is that an open box or floor model?" He replied nope and walked me to the register.
I check out and take it to the check table, where I pull everything out and thorougly check It for prints, marks, signs use, broken or missing parts.
Everything looks good, so I wrap up and head home happy with my purchase.
When I get home I start to notice little things, like smudges, and white powder in the wells of the top buttons. and a nick on the bottom of the kit lens. So I d/l the accuations software and hope for the best.
WTF I paid for a brand new camera, not a used, or a floor model!
With their no returns or exchange policy I'm not sure what my options are, or how I could even prove to them they sold me a used camera.
