1.0 out of 5 stars Counterfeit too. See how I spotted it, 8 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack (Camera)
I got mine from supplier SALLY CPL STORE (fulfilled by Amazon), whose rating of 4.8 stars left me confident when ordering, but unfortunately I got scammed too. At first glance I did not find anything suspicious as the lettering was clearly the same as Canon's but...

1) the plastic enclosure was not sealed
2) the plastic piece that clamps to the bottom of the battery was loose
3) and the hologram, although with changing colours, was much simpler than the official one (see link below)

By this time I was pretty sure that my battery was a counterfeit. The final solid proof came from the battery's serial number shown by the camera: as you can see in other posts here (thank you all!), counterfeit batteries have a 7 character serial number while original ones have a 8 character serial number. Sure enough, mine had 7.

As they are currently more than 60 suppliers for this battery and complaints are a dime a dozen, I really recommend you to buy only from Amazon and not from third parties (even if fulfilled by Amazon). The risk is simply too high.

Thankfully I contacted Amazon and got promptly refunded for the amount spent. Five star service!

5.0 out of 5 stars EISA European Zoom Lens 2011-2012, 18 Aug. 2011
I just cannot understand how a EISA "European Zoom Lens 2011-2012" award winner can have a 3* or below rating.
When I doubt, listen to the pros...

"This compact zoom lens is an excellent tool for travel photographers, who can now carry a single all-in-one zoom lens instead of the multiple lenses that would normally be needed to cover this range of focal lengths. Designed for the popular APS-C sensor format, it delivers a focal range that is suitable for anything from landscapes to wildlife photography. The lens is small and light, and the main zoom ring is comfortable and easy to operate. The maximum aperture at the wide-angle end is well suited for working in low-light conditions or when a shallow depth of field is required, and Tamron's new piezoelectric motor achieves near-silent autofocus." @ [...]
