MPB is disappointing

8 months 3 weeks ago - 8 months 3 weeks ago #725567 by Screamin Scott
I have been looking for a 75mm F1.8 Olympus lens. There had been like 6 on MPB. Well, I tried to order one, then another of the black ones. turns out, they had already been sold but not taken off their website. Well of the 4 lenses that remain, 3 are completely Silver and the lone remaining "Black" one has a silver barrel. They are trying to say that this is the "cap" when it obviously isn't. I suspect the lens has been repaired by a 3rd party outfit that used the barrel from a Silver unit to fix this one as I seriously doubt Olympus would do a repair in this manner...

I called MPB rather than trying their "Contact Us" link and spoke to someone a bit more knowledgeable who saw what I was referencing. It seems their warehouse is in NJ but their offices are in NY. He has to call the warehouse to have it checked out and will get back to me...

Turns out, it was actually a Black lens with a strange looking aftermarket lens cap.... They sent me pictures...
