    "The F-Stops Here"

    Regarding the store by that name, ttp://www.thefstop.com I have been unable to contact them. No answers to email and the phone just keeps ringing with no answer. Does anyone know what's up with them?

    Then it would be a great idea for Jon to shut down the revised photo website just to be consistent with his business plan to sell.

    Cheers!

    Simich is Jon's last name. His kin may be "running" the operation. I know I'm ordering the Bill Blass "Faux Fur" Vest. No one would mistake me for a photographer as I set up my equipment wearing that puppy ...

    I "purchased" a lens via online checkout on the F-Stops Here website in mid-December. My credit card was never charged, I have not received the lens, and none of my e-mails been returned nor my phone calls answered. I have given up at this point.

    Too bad. When they were out in California they were a great store and a great resource. Sorry to see them leave the field.

    I ordered an F64 bag from them. Got a call that it was backordered and asked if I wanted to wait. I said yes and they charged my credit card. Several weeks went by and I emailed and got a response that they were still backordered but would ship in a week, did I want my money refunded or wait?

    I waited, then in two weeks no bag, no more email response, nothing. I made a claim with my credit card company and got my moeny back. Never another word from the FStop.

    Too bad, I wanted to support these kinds of businesses.

    Maybe they went to Costa Rica with Wisner?

    I had two mildly bad experiences with this place - used items with obvious defects not mentioned in the listings. One was an Agfa Ansco 5x7 camera with a minor omission in the item description - nothing was said about the black paint someone had haphazardly sprayed all over the front of the camera including the chrome. Then there was the lens that stuck open on B and T. My impression was that they misrepresented equipment with the hope that the buyer wouldn't return it but if it was returned they did refund the purchase price. I heard they went out of business some time ago, no great loss IMHO.
