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.

I don't understand why such a merchant is allowed to put an ad in Shutterbug or
Pop Photo.
