Price Discrepancy

Don't take any notice of their advertised prices in the photographic press! I checked them out for a Sigma 150mm macro advertised in several current mags. @ £439.99 but when I 'phoned them the price had shot up £119 to £558. Bearing in mind my first question to them was "do you have this lens in stock?" the answer was - yes. When I then asked them to honour the advertised price for an item in stock they just made excuses about advertised prices could be at least 3 weeks, and more usually 6 weeks out of date and referred me to the small print. Understandable for a monthly mag but for the weekly AP I find this time delay an unacceptable answer especially considering the advances in publishing technology. This was far from an isolated incident as other prices were hopelessly out of date! Needless to say I sourced this lens elsewhere for £452 delivered and will not be using or recommending WE.
I noticed that they were not allowerd to exhibit at Focus On Imaging and ran a full page ad claiming this was because their prices were too keen for the competition - dream on!
