p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · canon 600/4 IS $650!


So I came across a website called "madeinchina" a couple days ago. I came across a distrubutor marked as "authentic / reliable" that sold camera gear. In their listings was the Canon 600 f4 IS. Minimum purchase quantity was listed as 1, but no price. I proceeded to contact the seller. In my message, i tried to sound as legit, and as naive, as possible - "Hello. I recently opened a camera shop here in the USA. As such, I would like to stock my store with premium equipment, as cheaply as possible. Your minimum purchase quantity of 1 for this product is the perfect opportunity for me to see the quality of equipment you offer. Could you please provide me with your price for this lens?"

The reply I received as unbelievable. First, the ad was false in regards of minimum purchase qty. The reply went as follows - "Thank you for taking interest in our products Mr. D. Our minimum purchase is three pieces, and you receive one free with every three you order. In regards to our price, the price is $650/USD ea. Again, thank you for your interest and we look forward to doing business with you."

Yeah, $650 for a what, $12,000 lens? Sounds legit to me! I cant afford 3, even at $650 ea.Anyone want to do a group buy? lmao!

Just thought some of you would get a laugh out of this.

That makes two of us, one more to go! We'll hold a drawing for the freebie.

The 600/4 IS is obsolete, so they must be used or something. That's not near $12K, but obviously $650 is unrealistic. Perhaps they are knockoffs?

Just got my delivery conformation and transferred my funds from an escrow account, I don’t trust them so I insisted they set up an escrow account till I got shipment confirmation… they must think I stupid, to their agent in Nigeria, (tax purposes as they explained in the letter).

Should receive my order of 12 600 f/4s in one or two business days… I paid extra for express shipping along with an extra $183.99 for insurance…

Actually they do Karl. I dont remember all, but i do remember a 60D and 7D. Prices I dont recall, but unrealistic just like the 600.

Mine showed up today... Ray's Overseas Home Delivery brought it to my door step... in three seperate boxes... I guess the lens is in one box, the case is in another... and the other makes a strange noise when I walk past...

Must have something to to with the IS...

Hope to take and post some photos later...

Got the lens assembled, only had three parts left over, but they are small and should prove to be insignificant, so I took the lens to the track for some evaluation shots…

Might need a bit of calibration….

I may want to ship the lens to Canon for the calibration, but when I removed the piece of clear tape that was over the serial numbers… the numbers came off with the tape…

I suppose Canon will accept it under warranty if I use a laundry marker to add the numbers back to their original location on the lens…

Do they care if it’s in red…. That’s the only color marker I have…
