How does Amazon let this clown organization taint their good name anyway?

On the good side, I think I can finally afford a 1d4!

Why is that I picture a dude in the store room with a magic marker altering the box of a 75-300 lens?

Ha-ha! I just ordered one! Let the games begin!

Looks like a lens, yes, but the technical details are very explicit: Canon 1D Mark IV! (I suspect the Canon body is cleverly hidden behind this lens, so it is difficult to see in the ad.)

I don't know if the problem originates at Wall Street Photo or at Amazon, but I think there's just a wee little bit of a problem somewhere in the pipeline:

Interesting post, given your FM name of TrojanHorse, eh?

Don't get me wrong. I'm just saying that it's intreresting to see "TrojanHorse" posting a thread about Trojan Horse postings on Amazon. YMMV.

The lens hood looks too small compared to the lens.

Not so sure about that 1D IV -- look at the rating. Only one star. Why buy junk, even if the price looks great.

OTOH, check out this fine 1D II. Yes, the price is higher, but that rating is outstanding.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

Amazon attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Amazon does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of this site is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by Amazon itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.

I was tempted...very very tempted...but I figure it will be a waste of time and Id be heartbroken when some crap nikon lenses landed on my doorstep.

"I was tempted...very very tempted...but I figure it will be a waste of time and Id be heartbroken when some crap nikon lenses landed on my doorstep."

Really? Aw. . . I know a part of me hopes that the 1D IV will show up, too. Enquiring minds want answers: Is the seller legit? This wouldn't be the first time Wall St. has been associated with questionable practices. Maybe this will be the time that they gain genuine credibilty when I post my positive feedback and everyone at FM knows how great they are. I smell Holiday Miracle!

The majority of the ad features title and specifications of the Canon 1D IV body, both above the photos and in the technical description below it. I can only surmise they posted the wrong photos, and I forgive them for that. They shouldn't have put the Nikon photo in there! The price is awesome, amazing.

(But for $159, I'm willing to go through the heartbreak, get my money back, and file bad feedback. Come on, it's the holidays already!)

Keith -- Yeah! You go for it! Let's compare notes as the we get tracking info and final delivery. Won't everyone be sad when we get our new (they are new, right?) 1D IV bodies.

Whoa! What's this all about?

Whew! This makes me feel better! Now I know I'm getting a good deal.

Not with this seller they don't... it's more intentional.

The seller enters a product code and Amazon supplies the photo and description. This can be very frustrating for sellers, the wrong photo or the wrong description costs them money. It can be difficult to get Amazon to correct it.

Send a complaint to Amazon, and maybe they will change the description.

Wow. Tried to do a search and found this:

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-1D-Mark-III-Digital/dp/B000NP1C5O/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1323813134&sr=8-8

1D III for just under $8k

And now for a laugh a Nikor lens with cleaning kit by Canon.

Amazon A-Z guarantee can be a crap shoot. I work for a company that sells items on there and sometimes customers will have the most ridiculous complaint and Amazon will just refund them with no recourse for us.

Amazon does also screw up with listings.
