18-135 WR Lens on Amazon $349
Posted By: JimmyL, 11-02-2014, 10:22 PM

Has anyone bought a lens from Davismax through Amazon?
They have a new 18-135 WR for $349 with free shipping.

Should I be wary?

Thanks, Jim

Sometimes these lowball offers don't include all the accessories, such as the hood. I'd double check with the seller first. Also, there's almost certainly no warranty if the box has been dissected.

Even if this kind of deals almost never happens in Italy, I would prefer to buy from a trusted seller a boxed item with accessories and warranty even if it means to spend a little bit more. In case of problems the extra value goes back to you through the service.

Agreed! For new, I would only purchase thru a trusted dealer.

Thank you all for your input. This site is quite the resource! After more research there are many bad experiences out there with DavisMax.
I just ordered an 18-135 from Adorama for $436 - including a 3 year drops and spills warranty - with free 1-3 day shipping.
