    I ordered 2 things on the 18th with 2-4 day shipping. Come to find out they were closed last week because of passover... fine. I call em monday and they apologized and said it should all go out teusday and should be here by friday... fine.

    I just checked their site and the morons packed my lens, but my bag which is the main reason of my purchase is still pending. 2 weeks... 2 FUCKING weeks. I'm trying to be paitient and think of these guys as the good guys, but its getting harder and harder each day. Next time, I'd be hesitant to buy based on this experience.

    sucks dude, i feel your pain, my D300 was shattered and sent back when it was 7 miles away from delivery. I had done 2 day shipping but I didn't get it for 6 :wtc:

    hope it works out for you

    as much as your experience sucks, it wouldn't have mattered who you ordered through as the shipper is the one who busted your camera :hsd:

    Hmmm if I remember correctly when I bought my 50mm + hood + filters the online store said the lens was backordered. I received the same email and one tracking number. Then the next day I recieved another tracking number. The hood and filters showed up early and the lens showed up a day later. So if thats backordered I was fine with it. I hope you aren't planning a trip or something and need this bag for it.

    Ordered 70-200 from them last week, and forgot they were closed too. However my lens arrived today, but nobody was there to sign for it. :doh:

    I just came across your post, and at this point can only offer my most sincere apologies for the delay in shipping your bag. A situation like this usually occurs because the manufacturer has assured us that items are being shipped out to us, but it doesn't happen - which in turn causes us to let down our customers.

    If you would like to contact me directly, at [email protected], with your order number, I will endeavour to track your order down, and find out what is causing the delay.

    Again my apologies - I do look forward to hearing from you

    Sincerely

    Helen Oster

    fuck. I just realized that UPS might require a signature for my lens/flash that's arriving today. I obviously won't be there to accept it since I'm at work.

    I fucking hope they just leave it outside :x:

    Call to have it arranged as a will-call pickup, then pick it up after work at the counter. That's what I do for packages that I know I won't be home to sign for, they'll just bring it back and leave it at the counter.

    It's already out for delivery. If they leave a note today that's what I'll do.

    I always have my stuff shipped to work for this very reason. No need to deal with that worry.
