Amazon aren't exactly the flavour of the month around here

You would have thought that they would have at least offered a discount off our next orders.

My son Adam's order cancelled too. Clearly it was residue SMC stock as they have suggested the newer HD lens as an alternative. The description and photo were clearly wrong as they showed the newer HD item, the order details were ambiguous as they didn't mention HD.

Amazon's a warehouse not a proper supportive retailer in my opinion but bargains can be had. I saved about 130 on a Lenovo Flex laptop for my wife in Amazon's last thechnology flash sale.

I've to date bought all my Pentax gear through SRS (2 year warranties) who have some cracking offers from time to time. 374 after bonus trade in from K5 to a late manufacture K3 for example satisfied my desires. Lens prices seem very volatile and high in between special offers as discussed before.

My order cancelled also. I am on a 30 day trial of Amazon Prime so i will be cancelling this before any money is taken.

Well they have had serious deals in the past, like the time they sold the FA 50mm f/1.4, the DA 55-300mm and the DA* 300mm for nearly half price a few years ago.

What is a Tax Refund ? I've heard rumours whispered in dark corners of buildings that such a thing exists

You have to pretend that you live in another country.... and you only buy off Amazon using Green Shield Stamps!
