I've bought from them as well my "english correspondent" went to the shop and brought me that brand new DA*55 when he's come to Italy.

And I have to thank PentaxUser for the advice about this shop. Thanks to those who told me.

I was looking for a lens hood for my sigma 100-300mm which sigma no longer supply. A Google searched show micro globe where listing them with the chance to make a best offer. I made an offer and they counter offered saying my offer was below their purchase price. I accepted the counter offer and paid. Received confirmation of the order then nothing for over a week so emailed them for an update.

They replied saying sigma no longer stocked them, they refunded my money and removed it from the site. Pretty rubbish really as I assumed having had a counter offer made they had them in stock and the lack of communication was pretty poor too, I wouldn't deal with them again.

The true test of any company is how it handles problems, that's when you find their true colours.
