Thank you so much for making this thread. I am very very close to pulling the trigger and ordering from Adorama. It's just that FeDex has given me the worst service in Edmonton and UPS loves to give me a surprise at the door.
Again thank you for posting your experiences.
Use UPS Worldwide Express. 2 day service, $10.00 Brokerage Fee (use to be free)
and the shipping costs are still reasonable.
As for getting hosed locally, If you buy the following:
Lee Big Stopper
Lee GND Kit Soft
Lee GND Kit Hard
Lee CP Filter
Lee Foundation Kit
67mm WA Adapter
77mm WA Adapter
82mm WA Adapter
[ HOSTED PHOTO DISPLAY FAILED: ATTACH id 569385 does not exist. ]
$1110.75 US Currently = $1151.00 + 5% GST + $10.00 = $1218.55
From a local Edmonton store:
[ HOSTED PHOTO DISPLAY FAILED: ATTACH id 569386 does not exist. ]
difference is $1991.43 - 1218.55 = $772.88
For that much, I could have flown to NY, Stayed a few nights at a
nice hotel, bought everything and still had a couple dollars left over.
(Although going into Adorama and B&H would have cost me much more )
PS: I just received a package from Adorama this week, and the
Package left last Friday at 3:00 PM and arrived Monday at 11:00am
