I have been dealing with the two, B&H and Adorama, more with the former and less
with the latter. I have dealt with Cambridge Camera once, and in my experience
there was no problem. Maybe I was just lucky at that time.
This time I was hoping to spend as little money as possible with the converter,
so that was why I called PhotoGraphic and another place 21st Century which is
also reputed to be just as shady as PhotoGraphic.
Today I tried to get an RMA to no avail. The customer service tried to replace
the item with a correct item. He finally gave me an RMA, but said it so fast
that I could not write it down. When I asked for a repeat, he refused and hung
up! I talked with my credit card bank twice so far. I am going to return the
item and get a proof of return. Then I can get the bank to fight the merchant
to get the refund.
Since Photographic sells Olympus product, I thought that everyone should be
aware of their shady practice.
