Argos are pretty notorious for having the lowest prices but no stock - Pretty easy to have the lowest prices if you have none to sell! :)

The old carpet shop trick, 3.99 per yard until you get in and they say "we dont have any left but we do have this 5.99 per yard ",
{ YES, guilty, I did this when i was an apprentice carpet fitter}

But if you put your postcode in it says they are in stock for home delivery!

Perhaps we're being too pessimistic here?

I bought a 50-200 SWD from Argos but then decided that it was too heavy for my requirements. I returned it without any fuss. A few months later I decided that I had been a little hasty and bought another one for 670 which I still have. Both lenses were shown as being in stock for home delivery and arrived within 2 days.

The 50-200 is currently offered at 599.99, which is about 400 cheaper than everywhere else. Unfortunately, it was in stock for home delivery a few days ago but is now out of stock. In light of my experience, I am sure that, if it is shown as being in stock, it will be delivered as stated. The 11-22 is in stock at the moment and looks like a bargain if anyone requires one.

I've got a used one for sale for 280 plus postage. See "For Sale and Wanted" for details.
