Re: Bargain lens?

Might be interested if they did an f/4 version for not too much more.

Re: Bargain lens?

Wait, I am asuming that from the comments, that this is a mistake on the part of the website....if not, it's mine!

EDIT: Just clicked add to basket, and it still showed that price, you think they'd give it to me for that?

Re: Bargain lens?

The normal price for this lens is approx £4000, I think they will have a get out in their terms and conditions, might be worth ordering one on the off chance though.

Thank you for placing your order with us. We will contact you again when your order is despatched.
Can't wait to see their grovelling note for getting price wrong

All we need now is some "temp" to be running the orders for the next week

Technically, under law, they have to sell it at the price they advertise it at, but I imagine it'll take a few court cases and lots of hassle to get them to give up....
Let me know what happens!

Re: Bargain lens?

Looking at their T+C's they do seem to have a 'get out' clause but I thought I would try my arm!!! I'll let you know how I go. All things being good there may be a lens for sale at some point soon!!!

Re: Bargain lens?

Now that would be nice!
Any lawyers knocking about to say different..he he...
There terms and conditions:


Accepting orders and security

When you place an order we will treat it as an offer to buy. We will send an e-mail (first e-mail) to confirm receipt. If we accept your order, we will send you a confirmation e-mail (second e-mail) with your order number, at which point we make a legal contract with you. However, we will be entitled to refuse to accept your order if we feel it necessary, in which case we will e-mail you as soon as we can to let you know.

In deciding whether to accept your order we may use the information you have given to us, or we already hold about you, to confirm your identity. This assists us to protect you and us from fraudulent transactions.

If we decline your offer on security grounds we may contact you to seek an alternative payment method or to advise you of the location of your nearest store.

Re: Bargain lens?

A price is an "invitation to treat". Ie it says anyone interested in buying. If you say yes there is no contract until they agree to sell. Then, if you pay, they are obliged to supply. That's pretty much what the T&Cs make clear they haven't agreed to sell yet. Just like in a in a shop you have no legal right to buy it at that price until the cashier says that will be £36.99. It is slightly different if it is an "Advert" you still will probably not be able to buy but they need to go through a few hoops depending on the wording which may well include printing retractions and removing the goods from sale for a while.

Re: Bargain lens?

I recently bought a 5 Disk SATA Disk Caddy for a new machine I was building, £86.00. Just before I purchased it I googled the model number to get some of the specs and saw it advertised on another site for £5.50. I thought, "I'll have one of those" so I ordered it, within 10 minutes the price had gone up to £86.00 but two days later one arrived at my door and they billed me £5.50. Obviously decided that it wasn't worth arguing about.

£3500.00 to £35.00 might be more worth the trouble.

cheers

Dan

Re: Bargain lens?

Dear All,
Below is a copy of the email I have just received from RGB tech.....

Never mind it was worth a try!!!!!

Hi



Thanks for your interest in our cock-up.

The sigma rep was in the shop on Wednesday and we decided to change the price of the 800mm, the problem is that if I add a decimal point into our new database, it decides this means a fraction of a penny rather than pence. Mistakes happen, but in this case at least you were not charged.



I have cancelled the order, and Iím sure you will no longer want the lens at the normal price.



Thanks again, and if you have any questions please call 01642 228182.



Graeme
