BUYER BEWARE!!! I ordered the Nikon D300 for 619.00 from CloseOut Genius. On an email requiring confirmation, when I called I got it out of them that it was a plastic body and if I wanted the magnesium body it would be 400.00 more. Close Out Genius advertised that this was a Nikon Product and said they were an authorized Nikon distributor which is a total lie.

I won't tell you how I got the supervisor,Jason Michaelson, ext. 212, on the phone as I used their tactics but it took me all day. He told me that there is Nikon USA and Nikon International that make two different Nikon D300 cameras and I could get the USA Nikon D300 for 1400.00, claiming it to be their cost. It went up another 400 from last offer.

I called the real Nikon company a couple of times and they informed me that there are not two Nikon D300 cameras made, even their international plants make the same one. I ordered this camera so it would take my autofocus lenses but the plastic 619.00 camera CloseOut Genius sells does not do that. They were rude, tried to sell me other cameras.

CloseOut Genius sells black market product and they are not only illegal for copyright and trademark infringement, it is false and misleading advertising. Nothing threatens them, CloseOut Genius say they have ways to get around any attorney; and although it said the camera is available on their site and advertised it as a Nikon which it is definately not, the excuse was well it is not available now. That is one way. This company needs to come down. In fact, they run under about ten different names. Close Out Genius or SL Genious, we need to all ban together and bring a class action suit against them before they take advantage of many more people. This is Bait and Switch for sure. Read this Bait and Switch fraudulent ad by SL or CloseOut Genious.

Rip Off Close Out Genius has many names. To name a few of these rip off Bait and Switch internet scam companies: SL Genius, Camcorder Genius, Navi Genius, Projector Genius, Plasma Genius, Receiver Genius, PC Genius, Cellular Genius .... BEWARE BEWARE!!!!

This is the Bogus Ad from Close Out Genius or SL Genius for the Black Market Nikon D300.

Nikon
Nikon D300 12.3MP SLR Digital Camera (Camera Body)
The Nikon D300 SLR Digital Camera offers outstanding image quality, multi-functional technologies and fast response, with an impressive resolution of 12.3 megapixels, speedy 6 fps frame advance, self-cleaning sensor unit and high definition 3" VGA LCD display, combined with Nikons legendary durability. The Camera also features Nikons exclusive EXPEED Image Processing System that is central to driving the speed and processing power needed for many of the cameras features; such as the 51-point auto focus system with Nikons 3D Focus Tracking feature, and two LiveView shooting modes that allow users to frame a photograph using the cameras high-resolution LCD monitor.

BEWARE EVERYONE ... the price is to good to be true and I should have known better than order from Close Out Genius but I really wanted this camera and couldn't afford it through now what I realize are the legit sites. Everyone needs to Close Out/ Close Out Genius and their many fraudulant online stores.
