Roberts Camera, no battery

Thought I got lucky Saturday when I found one GH2 online at Roberts Camera in Indiana. Just got it, no freaking battery. Anybody deal with Roberts, are they like, the Indiana version of New York schlock houses?


Edit: Upon further review, no battery charger or cord either.

2nd Edit: appears to be a return, not a new camera as advertised. Owners manual shows faint signs of having been thumbed through.

Actually you did get lucky in a way, at least you got a camera. Order your battery from Adorama, and hopefully they have cord too. That does suck, pretty dirty buisness. They had to know, or they are idiots, or they were ripped off by someone they trusted.

I knew it was too good to be true when I found it online. However, in all fairness, I bought a Nikon from Roberts five or six years ago, no problem.

This is ridiculous. Serial number WE1AA001161, in case it ends up somewhere else.

FYI, it's a cordless charger that comes with the battery. And I don't think you should have to buy one from another vendor.

Just to set record straight. Talked to folks at Roberts Camera today. Very much a class act. They're investigating the chain of delivery. More impressively, they moved heaven and earth to find another GH2 to send me. So, no worries. Definitely use them again.
