p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Adorama Vs B&H Lens rebate pricing


Just went to Adorama and B&H to compare prices of Nikon 24mm f/1.4

Both sites factor in the current rebates in their price.

Now, the difference:

B&H: Item Total:$1,799.00

Adorama:

Regular Price: 2,199.00
Instant Rebate: - $200.00

Your Final Price $1,999.00

C'mon Adorama, we know it is free market and such but I find it rather low on your side.

It's around 2000 on many other sites as well. Maybe B+H is running a sale on this lens on top of Nikon's, or made a mistake? Do we expect now that all prices are the same at all stores every minute?

as long as you can by the Samyang/Rokinon/Bower 24 f1.4 for $499 at B&H right now, neither price seems like the smartest way to spend my funds on a lens that really doesn't need AF

If you are buying a $2,000 lens, you ought to be smart enough to do some vendor and price checking on your own.

Do I think these threads are appropriate? Not really.... It's no different than price policing the buy and sell board. Let the buyer beware. And anyway, the lens isn't in stock at B&H.

Having said that, looking at a list of various reputable on-line vendors I use, the lens swings back and forth pricewise on all of them. So, calling Adorama "low" is a little inappropriate.

Thank you for all comments.

Yes, this is what I just did. I was smart enough, thanks for the complement, to compare both vendors as both are well known and have been used on several occasions.

In this direct given comparison, Adorama's price devaluates Nikon lens rebate.

In terms of policing FM for sale/trade forums, the owner sets the rules and one must obey them to participate.

Expressing an opinion about particular vendor and their pricing methods, is just an opinion.

We would, of course, match the price if you call in to one of our sales reps - and we do have it in stock......

This has got to be the most absurd thread in a while.

Where is it written that a private company 'must' meet its competitors pricing and offer you the same or better?

Why do you imagine you should be absolved of performing due-diligence when buying anything and the onus is therefore upon the seller to 'guarantee' you the best price?

No one owes you anything, notwithstanding the present-day socio-political zeitgeist in the US, Chicagoland and Western Europe (i.e., bankrupt civilizations where citizens imagine all sorts of pricey "stuff" as their 'right').

OMG she must be doing it just to piss you off!! Go wherever you find cheapest price and stop complaining! When I was shopping around some site had lower price but I purchase from a reputable seller and they did match the lowest price I found!! Sometimes just some nice inquiry go a long way
