My latest purchases

  • The Olympus OM2000 camera bought in January has still not been delivered, the UK carrier has asked me to check the address that the sender had put on it online, that address was correct, but it appears that the road to Belgium is still missing.
  • The Olympus Pen F bought at a German camera shop does not work when a lens is mounted on it, after reporting this, the seller does not respond.
  • Another Olympus Pen F that has been purchased turns out to be a medical version, which is unusable for normal photography, the seller did not know this he says
  • Purchased an expensive adapter to use on Olympus Pen to use OM lenses, I pay € 10 extra to send the adapter registered and with track and trace, the seller thinks he is smarter and ships it in a regular envelope like a normal letter, after sending the adapter disappears and has been missing now for a week.

If you happen to come across a driver who is looking for Belgium, please show him the way.
Only buy things that you are sure of they work,
or ask the seller to check again and ask him to make a video of it.
Then ask to have your things packed and again to make a video of it,
Watch at home the videos to make sure, only then pay.

Yes, the latter was a joke, unfortunately the list was not.
Have a nice weekend.
