I back ordered a new Nikon 500mm 4.0 vr2 from Adorama two days ago on 10-24-10 and to my surprise it shipped out two days later on 10-26-10. My concern is that adorama may be sending me the one refurbished 500mm lense that was listed on their website on 10-24. The refurbished lens was delisted on the same day they shipped me the lens.
I am sure the refurbished lense is a fine lense but that was not my intention and I paid full retail price for this lense. How can I be absolutely sure that the lense I will be receiving on Monday (11-1-10) is brand new and not refurbished?
Adorama says they place refurbished stickers on refurbished items but it seems way to easy for them to just remove the sticker and ship.
Any thoughts on this situation.
