Smile Crazy online prices! Can it be?

Hello,

I have been comparing prices online in order to get the lenses I need.

I stumbled upon StarkDigital.co.uk. It's very cheap.
StarkDigital
The 30D body only costs half of what I paid for it!

I am suspicious, but if the StarkDigital site is reliable, I am definitely ordering my lenses there!!!

Why is it so cheap? Do you know the StarkDigital site? Should I trust the site?

Please let me know if you have ever bought anything through this site. Were you satisfied? What was the service like?

Many thanks and all the best,
Amarillaa

FORGET IT!!!

I googled it and it's a scam site. A fake Internet shop!!!

It was too good to be true!

Please ignore my posting. I am sorry if I caused confusion or got someone else's hopes up.

Ooops...

They are indeed ok

I gave a quick bit of info about them in your "which lens" post but I'll repeat it here again.

They are a Asian based site that I (and a few other members) have personally used, they offer good prices with free delivery and will refund any import charges you might recieve. Delivery will take around a week though, and it's best to email before ordering to see if they have stock of what you want... I would also ask in the email if the delivery would be in time for Crimbo, just to be safe.

Re: Crazy online prices! Can it be?

I know that StarkDigital has been earmarked as a scam but i think its important to remember that there ARE deals that look too good to be true out there.
I know myself and at least one other member got canon i9950 A3+ printer's for absolutely silly money last year. A price that seemed too good to be true was infact as it was advertised!
