You can go to overstock if you want, but I would be wary. I found the lens I wanted (Canon EF-S 10-22mm) for a decent price + upgrade of three filters for price of one and free shipping. On checkout, no free shipping was available, so I chose expedited shipping (5-7 days). Then noticed there was no mention of the upgraded filters on invoice. Called Overstockdigital's 888 number to verify my order and was immediately told that the lens I ordered would not work with my camera as it would increase f/4.5 to f/8.0 - how the operator knew what camera I had was beyond me. He then proceeded to try to sell me a "better" lens package (Sigma), telling me all the while that the build quality was superior, better focusing, quieter, etc.,etc.(not to mention he questioned why anybody would recommend a Canon lens for my Canon camera - go figure). It took 10 minutes of his sales pitch before he would finally tell me that my order was in, with filters included, and would be shipped immediately. Called the next day to verify that my lens was being shipped and was told that I ordered the import version of the lens (uh..I did? Where was that option?) and that it would take two weeks for them to get it in, BUT I could buy the US version for just a bit more money and they could ship it out immediately. Told the operator no thank you, either ship the lens or cancel the order. Another 10 minutes of a sales pitch ("it really is only a little bit more money, it's such a value!") before I had to get impatient and demand he cancel the order ... cut to another 5 minutes of "you can't get a better price anywhere else, BestBuy has it for XXX, and Amazon has it for XXX" before I lost all patience.
So, order is currently cancelled (we'll see if something shows up on my credit card anyway). Order from them if you have the patience for the BS and oil-slick salesmanship. I never bothered to find out if they would actually ship the product.
BTW - found the lens on Adorama, w/ Hood and Tiffin 77mm UV filter for less than what I was going to pay Overstockdigital.
Anyone buy/receive anything from there? Was looking from a macro lens, place order, nothing happen, I called in and they tell me their system is down and currently cannot accept AMEX, but can process order w/ VISA or MC. Sound very shady to me...
