    Clearly running a "bait and switch scam". The lens was not in Nikon packaging. Not likely to be a domestic lens. A salesman called inquiring if I knew the original order was not a domestic lens. We argued over whether the web sight was clear about that. Since I was driving when he called me on my cell I couldn't confirm it. I later did confirm that the item did not indicate international lens.i have no confidence this is a domestic lens. He the brought in the "switch" lens at a higher price. It surprises me the NY Attorney General let's them stay in business.

    Since I have not received the item yet, it's hard to say how satisfied I will be overall, but the product description, price, and shipping cost were great!

    Thank you for competitive prices. Keep it up and ship my product on time and I will return for more purchases. Recently I tried an outfit called SLR and had to cancel the order due to poor service.

    After questing some on Facebook, I went ahead and ordered from 42 nd St..All of the feedback was positive and I used PayPal to order so I had a way to make sure of my order.

    I had called twice or 3xs to get a tracking number bc they never sent me one or sent me and email that the package was shipped. I did not have no info on that. They need to improve that part of the process. Its very important for a customer to be advised when a package has been shipped with a tracking number.

    I ordered a Lens. I paid for next day delivery. They contacted me that afternoon and said they had a very special UV HD filter for $99 special price that they could ship with my order. He said it was the best filter, regularly $200, special price $99 if purchased with the lens. I told Jack that I did not have immediate access to the internet to research the filter and see if it was a good deal. I said I would return it (unopened) if I did not like it after reviewing the details. Jack said okay and he was placing my order for delivery. Upon reviewing the filter, I contacted 42nd Street Photo by email to return it. After receiving no response, I contacted Jack. To summarize the conversation, Jack tells me that there are no refunds, he does not have time to read the multipage refund policy to everyone who contacts them, there are no refunds, he is the Sales Manager and there is no one above him to escalate my concerns. When I said I would never order from them again, Jack's reply was "Sure, that's not a problem".
