First batch=good, current stock?=bad
on September 28, 2011
I placed an order for these in early Sept, and they were of excellent quality, like Sony. Fit and finish all very nice, was very happy with them. Then I needed to order another set and I though I had used same seller but somehow there was a mixup (I guess because the seller CAMSDIGITAL piggybacked onto the RainbowImaging sale page) and I accidentally ordered from camsdigital. Yuck, what a difference. The 2nd set rec'd were a different kind of plastic, very hard and shiny, kind of clicky almost like cheap checkers. The lens cap is not great, but acceptable and works, but the body cover is like a modified lens cap, looks bad plus doesn't fit well at all. Doesn't glide into place, you have to really shove it and it feels like it will break or ruin the camera.
I can only recommend RainbowImaging (the color might be a little different from Sony but that did not bother me), camsdigital I do not recommend, and the others showing up now, I have no idea.
UPDATE 9/30/11 - well I returned the 'bad' caps from camsdigital and reordered, making sure I had selected from RainbowImaging as the merchant/seller. The replacements arrived today and SAME BAD QUALITY now, hard clicky plastic, bad fit and the body cap looks like a lens cap. Not like the photo shown on Amazon anymore, sorry to say. I will return these also, and upload a photo comparing these with the ones I bought previously. No longer recommend these caps from either RainbowImaging or camsdigital.
