    Need help buying my Tamron...

    I am finally able to buy myself a Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 Lens yay!
    But would love some info on an oline shop called Camera Paradise, it's offering the lowest price ATM of $303.80. This is apparently with 18mth warranty... It seems too ood to be true...
    Anyone here brought through this store before?
    Initially I was going to buy through eglobal, (without a warranty) but they have uped their price by $100 in the last two months :O

    No, and I have a distinct feeling that their prices are too cheap to be real.
    Something rings a bell that they have been mentioned before on here and reports of, yep, you get the lens at that price but then you have to pay for the hood and end caps + the box it arrives in.

    The Tamron 90mm that you want to buy has been around for a million years, is consistently well built and to my knowledge is not in short supply.
    Try looking around the well known retailers ( including Ausphotography site advertisers ) and settle for a slightly higher price but with at least the confidence that the goods will turn up as ordered.

    That price doesn't include shipping which is an extra $76 taking it over the price from E Global who include shipping. Insurance is only an extra 2%, in this case about $7.50.
