    I go to a local shop but they also do a lot of work on eBay. They're called Bromfield Camera, they've been in operation here in Boston for years.

    Many of us have had excellent service at Adorama. The main difference seems to be the fact that you used a prepaid credit card. Most of us just link our credit card to PayPal and go with that. It seems to work o.k.

    I don't even think PayPal needs to be in the equation when buying from a reputable company.

    Thought of this thread yesterday when ordering something from Adorama. When I went to pay, the PayPal option popped up and I was going to use it since it would save me from typing in my cc number but then I thought of this mess. Anyway, used my cc directly to avoid any 3rd party involvement. It is frustrating when you're dealing with a 3rd party and parties 2 and 3 point the finger at each other leaving you as an unhappy customer. I've run into that with Expedia and now I no longer use them.

    But - I have to say, I ordered the lens (new not used) yesterday late afternoon - just before 4pm and it's here already. Free overnight shipping for the holidays and it came with a $50 Adorama gift card. You really can't beat that! Now to find something that I need/want that is only $50...
