My worse shopping experince in 32 countrys. ld my lens

Im a tourist from Sweden who visit Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco july 2007. When I passed buy Twins a salesmen come out and asked about my videocamera. He would like to sell a wide angel lens to me. Three salesmen was around me to convince me, the dont listen when I say NO. They sold a Zice wide angel lens to me, first pris 399 dollar after that 270 dollar, this is a pirate copy (Zeiss) of lens it is not worth anything . When I come home I discover that they had stold my lens also.
I think this shop is a shame for USA and Fishermans Wharf.

Purely curious about what they had, I walked in and asked for a wide-angle, fixed aperture lens for a Nikon D700. Smooth as silk the sales man pulled it out and attached it to my lens, then said it was $800. Well, my mental BS alarm went off and I talked him down to $100 and would have just left if my husband hadn't pulled out a $100 bill. Leaving, I had a bad feeling so I did some online research and found ONE website retailing it for $30.

Some afterthoughts...
First he said they only accepted cash, but when I said I only had plastic, suddenly they took credit cards too. HMMM

Dodgy camera sharks YES - BUT can find good deals there

Simply what everyone says here is true. They will rip you off. I don't advise you go there. I got scammed with the Zice CCD lense but managed to get away by not paying to much. (This was back on 2007)
They sold me the wrong telephoto lens for the Nikon D50 I bought but they did send me back the right one a week or two later (but at some of my expense). So that was annoying but they did sort it out.

I also got a good deal on my Nikon and lens. Well it was slightly cheaper than the other cheapest place I found so that was ok.

Mixed review here, but I would suggest you give someone more...

The people who run this place and sell camera gear should be put on a shooting range. ""MO"" the sales assistant is a sucking freak with no morals.
DO NOT TRUST THIS SHOP OR LISTEN TO THE lies THAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH.

WHAT EVER PRICE THEY GIVE YOU ON A ITEM TAKE OFF AN EXTRA 90PERCENT.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED DO NOT BUY.
IF THIS WAS GOING ON IN AUSTRALIA THIS SHOP WOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSED DOWN .

Pros

+ put a bullet to the head of a person called ""MO""

Cons

- ""MO""
