Hi Guys

I was checking out www.alibaba.com and i came across DSLR's like D700 selling for dirt cheap.like 50%

http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/334529202-New-D700-Digital-SLR-Camera-wholesalers.html



Anyone have experience in dealing with them when it comes to DSLR's. I have gotten other 3rd party/no brand stuff from them which has turned out alright ..but I am not too sure about this..

please share your experience..

mods: sorry I am not too sure where to post this..

There's an old saying ...

If it's too good to be true, it probably isn't.

Well I have experiences with alibaba but not the alibaba express.

Alibaba has many scams. Once I was live chatting with the dealer. And He responded. However, It's ridiculous he give me 2 different pricing on 2 different day. So I doubt and google over his company name and address and really he's a scam.

However aliexpress has escrow protected. It's quite safe. Although I haven't try. You could check on his rating. and Do more conversation with him. Find any loop holes.

Alibaba is just a marketplace like ebay. Anyone can register and post garbage. And this includes all the Nigerian scammers who enjoy preying on the gullible...
