Argos are worse than J*ss*p*

  1. Hello folks.

    I know that J*ss*p* is not generally help in high respect.
    How about Argos? here's two lenses in their |Spring/Summer 20067 catalogue,
    page 465:

    Product code 570/0329 Canon zoom F/4.5-5.6 lens £139.79

    and you find in the description that this is the EF90-300mm lens.


    Product code 570/0336 Canon F/4.0-5.6 lens £149.99
    This is a "light standard zoom lens. A convenient, general purpose lens".

    Fine .. .but what focal length is it?

    Makes J*ss*p* seem quite helpful in comparison, doesn't it?

    Regards, Ian.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. Argos is a box-moving catalogue shop,
    no more, no less. They make no claims to the contrary, nor
    do they specialise in anything.

    Jessops on the other hand claims to be a specialist
    photographic high-street retailer. Spot the difference in
    the claims, compare and contrast the level of actual
    service.

    I never buy shoes in a shoe shop. I always buy shoes in a department
    store.

    : Where do you buy a pair of shoe?

    I've also found that most of the compact cameras in their catalogue
    are excluded from their "no hassle return & refund" policy, and some
    are not described with complete accuracy (battery types etc.).

    I would be very reluctant to buy anything from Argos now.

    True, but you can return it under the Sale of Goods act if it has been
    described wrongly.
