p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Amazon cheap lenses?


In the market for a Sigma 24-35mm F2.0 Art DG HSM lens. I noticed somebody has one listed used in Amazon, but the price is crazy mega cheap. The price shows more than 50% off?!??!

Seems too good to be true, anybody care to chime in with their two cents.

Edit: Says used then lists this in the description: NEW ~ For let us know, ONLY to: Joahuk @ computer4u , com INSTANT BUY and DELIVERY free ~ THANK YOU !!

I found the lens on Amazon. 350.00 by just the one seller. Really a price drop from all the others. The seller has good ratings. I don't know what I'd do to be honest. It's almost too good to be true. I even went to their website and oddly when I searched for Sigma lenses I did not find any results.

Oh my, they even have 1DXII's for $2,000.00. I'll take 10 please for resale.

No way this is legit.

Well, if it seems too good to be true, why are you asking others for advice?

If you want to be a sucker, buy it.

Please report it to Amazon. They will credit some coffee money to your account if you report this to them. There have been scams like those and almost always the seller is computer4u.com or sometimes newly launched.

The key is that these listings always want you to contact them first, rather than buy through Amazon.

Yep, I spent a few hours a few weeks ago agonizing on whether or not to spend the money on a 50% off L lens. I decided to, even contacting Amazon asking if everything looked legit. They way I say it was that if it was legit why not buy it. If it was a scam Amazon would take care of me as they always have.

It turned out you had to contact the seller via email "before purchasing". I wondered what it was about so I contacted them from a burner email address.

Haha, here is what they had sent me:

All of those Amazon 'Sellers' selling super low are fake - unless you know for sure they are a legit seller (lots of reviews that are good). It disappoints me on amazon, I really don't shop on there at all because of all those scams.
