Recently a post was started where people could post the name of camera shops where they had good experiences. After reading and confirming information about an unetical Nikon dealer I thought a cautionary post was in order.
I read a post on Nikon Rumors' Facebook page about a dealer who had taken pre-orders for D4 cameras but rather than fulfilling the orders he was selling the D4s on eBay at an additional profit of some $1200. I decided to determine if this information was factual so I logged onto eBay, checked the D4 postings and emailed Gary Camera regarding their D4 item for sale. Here is how the email exchange went:
Apparently you are a dealer that has been able to fulfill all their pre-orders?
Gary Camera Response:
No. But when you have 6 cameras selling at 7K to 7400.00 last week via EBAY by non dealers and are just reselling these cameras at a 1000.00 profit, it makes no sense for me to fulfill cameras to people I have no idea who I'm selling to on my list. It's a supply & demand product. I sold 2 locally several weeks ago but these were people who I knew would not resell and I sold them at normal prices.
Thanks for your reply. I really just wanted to verify the Internet rumors regarding Gary Camera and their complete lack of ethics. You have done so magnificently.
Some people may want to be apprised of this situation; particularly if you ordered or are considering ordering through Gary Camera.
