    I have just been in a shop for a price match with them and was refused they said they were under trade prices and could be refurbished at the prices they sell them at.

    I was just wondering has anybody bought a camera from Amazon and was it OK.

    I bought a camera from Amazon for work and it was fine. I take it you have used amazon before for books etc?

    Its their usual good service, well packaged. Can't think of any bad points to mention.

    Sounds like the shop is just making up excuses.

    After all, Amazon are big enough to buy direct whilst many smaller (and not so small) retailers will go through the normal distribution channel.

    So whilst the price from Amazon might be below the shops own buying price, that does not mean that there is anything wrong with the Amazon product.

    :oops: Should have said rang a local shop, and the shop was Jessops and they would only come within £63.

    But an other came within £23 as a local shop was selling them at that price.

    Which £23-£63 I can buy some memory with.

    Bought my Olympus C150 from Amazon. Great price and special offer of an Olympus hard leather carry case free. I love Amazon and have never had a problem in 4 years of using them.
