50-200mm SWD can this be true.

Has anyone had any dealings with this company, a 50-200mm SWD for 524!

Too good to be true?

Loads of other Oly kit as well.

They seem to have come up in Talk Photography.

Obviously there are others with some suspicions.

Re: 50-200mm SWD can this be true.

Hmm... Google "Harris Technology", looks an awful lot like this website don't you think?

Seems a little sketchy to me.
(Sorry I can't post proper links yet.)

*Edit* I see someone beat me to it, I see the link for Harris Technology in the thread posted above...

After extensive Googling I have found this:

Avoid I think!

Their 'contact us' address is 7 Guildhall Yard, with an incomplete postcode. I don't think there's much of Guilhall Yard which isn't taken up with the Guildhall itself, the Guildhall Library and St Lawrence Jewry church!
Avoid!

Re: 50-200mm SWD can this be true.

The contact number on the "Contact us" page of their website is quoted as +442081336625. By a remarkable coincidence 020 8133 6625 is the contact number quoted on the website of http://www.best-dslr-deals.com - so there's another one to avoid!
