Bally photo in funan...avoid like the plague
salesman, kinda crippled or something, had a limp...bad news.
i asked to see a specific lens, he said he has to get it...more like "I'll go get it if you confirm" i told him i will test the lens, not confirm...he didn't want to get it and i was going to leave, he said ok ok, i go get.
i tried it out, first snap good, second snap good, changed the aperture from 2.8 to 3.5... snap another shot and wow...top half of the photo was yellow and the bottom half was normal. snapped again, this time bottom half of the pic was yellow and top was normal. changed aperture settings and it was hit and miss.
i told the salesman no thanks and showed him the pics, he got pissed off with me...he said with this lens i am supposed to keep it at only 2.8. yeah right??? it was a constant 2.8 mid zoom lens from a verrrrrrrry popular brand. i snapped back at him and told him, what you think i am stupid...how can buy a mid zoom lens and must keep at 2.8? i said it rather loud where the rest of the customers looked at me, and yes, i then made a scene with the intention to chase their customers away, which is what happened.
its a shame that this a new store, at least location anyway, but same ol BS selling tactics. stay away from Bally and take a few more steps to Alan Photo....much better people there...but bad lighting, sheesh that purple neon gotta go
he (the crippled guy from Bally) then tried to sell me a sigma 17-50 2.8 anyways, the price he gave was 1,300...wow can buy two tamron's or one 17-40L for that price... anyways, stay away from these clowns and avoid the headaches...peace.
have a good day gang
