    just bought a canon rebel from ebay, i was supposed to have received six lenses with my camera but instead the guy said he upgraded my package and sent four digital lenses instead of six standard lenses. (im not sure the difference between standard and digital) did i just get ripped off?

    ummm...

    Well, to answer your direct question we'd need to know the exact list of both sets of lenses (or you could just research it yourself)

    That being said, switching out what you bought with something else is blatantly illegal, not to mention would displease the gods of ebay...

    Buyer beware.

    In short....yes, you got bait & switched (read - ripped off). Contact ebay immediately, and Paypal as well (if that is how you payed).

    Post a link to the auction that you won.

    yea, I don't want to sound like a broken record, but, you got bamboozled.. as a future reference, I strongly recommend NOT buying camera gear from places like ebay, unless its something that is really cheap... get it from a reputable online store (like bhphoto.com) or, in person... this will prevent getting screwed over.

    Well, they have a lot of sales and apparently a lot of happy customers... I'd try and work it out with them before getting too upset just yet - they sound like they have good communication, they even list a phone number.

    Impressive list. Trouble is a lot of the little stuff is just useless crap. I'd say you about got your moneys worth. But 1/2 that stuff you won't ever use.

    The list in the auction actually only has 2 real lenses the other things are just lens attachments (which are useless as they suck) and as kmh stated a lot of the stuff on that list (while to the average eye looks impressive) actuly is quite useless

    OK here's the deal. I have learned not to ever buy major things off Ebay such as a complete camera kit. I had my eye on a very nice Canon 50D kit on Ebay and when I decided to buy it, the company had gone out of business and the feedback page was littered with negative comments! People never got their items after spending $2000+. The company told them not to buy from them anymore (which is weird). Also, they kept relisting the kits even though they were out of stock. A few weeks ago, I emailed this company, before they went out, and asked them all kinds of questions from warrantee to why it's so much cheaper, how I know what I get is what I'll get, ect... Got no reply, sent it again a week later, no reply... Got me very nervous. After I found out they went under, I swore to never buy a major thing like that on Ebay. I'll stick to smaller things from now on...

    i'm newb, not sure what you mean by glass. sorry

    my main question was if there was a difference between the lenses in each package. Manny(the guy from getitdigital) said the ones listed where standard but the upgraded were digital. I have tried to research the difference but haven't really found anything with google. thanks for all the help so far
