I avoid the Brooklyn camera shops.
Id agree as well. Focus Camera appears to have the Brooklyn brick and mortar shop as well as a 100,000 square foot warehouse in New Jersey to support their much larger online store. UPS is showing the scope shipped from the warehouse. In either case the scope is scheduled for delivery today so we shall see.

There's a bunch of them and most aren't factory authorized by Nikon/Canon etc so your warranty gets voided. It may not matter for a scope.

Their service also sucks if you have an issue. Go to reseller ratings - you get a mix of horrible 1 star reviews, and glowing 5 star reviews that sound fake.

The good old gray market.
way back bought a lot of stereo stuff on canal street NY NY.
and what warranty, it would never be valid let along be voided.
You new most of it would work just fine, but your taking a chance.

Just an update. Scope came yesterday and looked good. As an abundance of caution I talked to Vortex who had me send a couple of pictures. They confirmed its 100% legit. Not sure if the deal is still going on but it turned out well.

Image is back!

I may give it a whirl just to stick it to Amazon. That's a loss leader for sure. $20 delivered?

EDIT - just read the reviews - maybe not. Folks got NOT roses or nothing last year. My wife doesn't need anything anyhow. A card is MORE than she's expecting. . . . and I bought a card. LOL
