    Mine arrived today. There was some sort of order confusion and Adorama made two orders for me, and both arrived today! (This explains the two different charges on my credit card...)

    In the process of refunding the extra one, however if anyone in LA/OC missed this deal and wants to purchase my duplicate item, DM me on Instagram @travismoulton

    This has been such a clusterfuck of an experience with Adorama. I'll never be ordering a group buy through them again.

    yeah i cancelled my order and went to my guys at Abel Cine and they got me a 5inch Extended with gimbal vest for 4k (just $200 over) and got mine in 2 days after i order it. If anyone wants one they have like 3-5 left at that price. Just ask for Matt Livingston he hooked me up. I tried to talk to Lewis from Adorama and it just got so frustrating and there was no communication and i just was like please i need this gear (lost 4 rentals due to the delay)

    In all fairness to Travis and Adorama, this was a really incredible deal and I think that should be acknowledged. Also, Travis was very accommodating in allowing folks to jump onboard the group after the official end date, which should also be acknowledged.

    I too was disappointed by the slow delivery schedule (and I still got mine earlier than many) and the billing issues, but I have been given no reason to believe that they are not doing their best to keep up with the huge list of orders (please correct me if I am wrong). So the negativity, while understandable in some cases, seems a bit unfair. Units are being delivered and regarding the tax issue, I had always assumed that taking delivery in 2018 (or at least payment) was always a long shot given how close to the end of the year it was. You can still write it off for 2019.

    Also - just my personal opinion, feel free to disregard - I think counting on rental income before actually taking delivery of said item is not a good business practice. Especially when dealing with professional film equipment that is not manufactured in large quantities. I am not trying to call anyone out in particular, and I totally understand the frustration. I've been that guy before too - with cinema lenses and lens servicing in particular, the wait times can be months or even years (and yes, I have waited years in some cases). I just don't think this is a good mindset to be in since you have no control over it - always a good idea to CYA with regard to any rentals that you may have lined up. Only my $.02, FWIW.

    Oh no... I'm not talking about Travis at all. I'm talking about the piss poor communication and down right incompetence displayed (for my order) that I experienced from Adorama . I'll expand on it and explain but I just don't have time at the moment to get into it. I have nothing but good things to say about Travis and his efforts in this group buy.
