Oh how very true I am trying to claim insurance just now for an item I sold and buyer received not just damaged but removed altogether from the inner packaging. Delivery was bought through Amazon from a company called collectplus a total nightmare it has been really. And Amazon always do take the word of the buyer and issue a chargeback without much investigation or even ask for proof of damage or anything at all !!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I recently bought my D7000 from them. I'd stick to sold by Amazon though, rather than fulfilled by Amazon.

I have seen a few Canon 5D Mk 2 cameras on Amazon Marketplace at ridiculously low prices in the past week. I am after such a camera but I have been put off but the fact that the seller has just launched and there is no feedback. I am working on the theory if the price is too good to be true, then it must be, Having said that, if you pay by credit card and Amazon have a guarantee in operation there doesn't seem to be much of a risk.

I bought my 7D through Amazon, not the Marketplace, and it turned out to be faulty. Amazon replaced it by courier post the next day. Amazon itself give a superb service.

I have bought Hundreds of Items over the last few Years, from Amazzon and have allways been very pleased with them. Exellant company no complaints very Trustworthy.

I have used Amazon a number of times. They always have delivered and sent messages as to when dispatched and expected date of arrival. (it usually is sooner than later). I always use a credit card for purchases as it seems there is some protection with them compared with normal bank account card. Not had to return any item so can't comment on that.

Had my fingers burned slightly. Bought the Panasonic 1-300mm lens on Amazon, supplied by Shaftway. Turns out it was foreign sourced (no indication of that anywhere) and therefore ineligible for the 50 cashback (Paul on here reminded me to claim!) - which made the attractive price not very good after all.

I've contacted Amazon about this to see what their policy is regarding this. I await their response with interest...

Whilst I've had no trouble the Amazon, I did have to return a lens once which was problem-free, but the box holding the lens was not sealed. I'm always a bit suspicious when I get "new" stuff in an unsealed box.

Quote:supplied by Shaftway.

If only there had been a clue ........ GrinGrinGrinGrin

I hope you get it sorted
