    Is unbelievable price believable? (ovibuy)

    Does anyone has purchased any product from this company? The price is so unbelieable.

    Only one way to know for sure! Tell us how it goes

    I especially love the way the 24-105 L lens is thrown in for free.

    If you have the slightest doubt, unlike me, then research the company and tell us what you find. cheers

    You can't buy a camera worth $2800 and a lens worth $1200 all for $1200.

    I did a quick research and it translated to "SCAM" website. Normally these type of website will advertise the product and that's all you are going to get such as the camera. You'll have to buy the strap, battery, lcd cover etc. separately. Here is a quick link that I had it translated in English using Google.

    Yes, good work Glenn. You can add that site to the shitlist for sure.

    They claim they'll sell you a Nikon 14-24 for US 645. How nice that would be.
    All constructive criticism accepted with gratitude.

    Someone has obviously gone to a lot of trouble to put this site up.
    There is just so much stuff on it, but if you look through the camera sections, you'll see lots of very old cameras for sale like a Canon 30D and 40D (which were discontinued some years ago), which does make me suspicious, although their prices look too good to be true.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
