• All orders within Austria we will ship without costs. For all orders over 500 EUR we offer free delivery worldwide (including full insurance and packing). This does not include items with high volume or weight, which are calculated after your order.

General Terms and Conditions of Business

  1. All our offers are provisional and we reserve the right to change the offer in whole or part at any time. Your order is simply an offer to enter into a contractual agreement. That contract comes into existence only with the shipping of the ordered item. Your order is regarded as valid from the time we receive the electronic notification of it. We expressly reserve the right to change or amend, delete the page in whole or in part without separate notification. We also reserve the right to suspend publication for a period or completely.
  2. Orders which we accept by sending an electronic confirmation or by delivery will be expedited at the best price on the day of the order. All prices are quoted by us in Euros and, unless expressly noted, exclusive of value added tax (VAT). Invoices will be made out with the legally required VAT added to the quoted price. Our prices do not include the costs of packaging and shipping. Delivery is undertaken by mail or international courier service depending on customer’s wishes. In some countries we can only ship by mail or international courier service.

  3. We can offer you the possibility of payment by means of credit cards (we accept Visa and Mastercard), PayPal or with a direct bank to bank transfer.

  4. Goods remain our property until full payment has been made.
  5. Consumers within the definition of the Konsumentenschutzgesetztes (Consumer Protection Act) have the right to cancel the contract within 14 days without having to specify grounds. Return of the goods within the period is sufficient exercise of these rights. The time limit begins to run with delivery of the goods to the customer. We can’t accept reimbursement for postage costs.

  6. On the one hand we sell factory condition goods and, on the other, used items. All these are offered as collector’s (display) items which will show corresponding deficiencies in keeping with wear and tear according to their age and treatment.

  7. Where a factory new article is defective and that defect can be repaired, the guarantee is fulfilled when the proven defect is repaired free within the terms and limitations of the factory guarantee. At our choice, the defect may also be remedied by exchanging defective goods or parts thereof within a reasonable time. In this case there is no right to a price reduction.

  8. Collector’s items and used apparatus will be described according to the following scale and according to our best knowledge and belief. The scale describes the optical condition of the article without reference to its functionality or to hidden defects:

    A: mint, in original packing
    A/B: as new, minimal traces of use
    B: very good condition with slight evidence of use
    C: normal condition with heavier signs of use
    D: heavily used, partially defective

    The complete scale from A to D:
    A; A-; A/B; B/A; B+; B; B-; B/C; C/B; C+; C; C-; C/D; D/C; D

    The modified points on the scale act in giving the descriptions greater accuracy. The surfaces of all cameras and lenses have been cleaned—dirt and dust removed.

    We do, however, guarantee the accuracy of the information as to the producer of the article. If, within a period of one year from the date of purchase, the purchaser can show that this is incorrect and can produce the fake article, the purchase price will be refunded at the same time as the fake is returned. Any claims over and above this for damages, the implementation of the terms of any guarantee or warranty are hereby explicitly excluded except insofar as they are inalienable rights conferred on a consumer by the Konsumentenschutzgesetzt [Consumer Protection Act].
  9. We only use customer data in order to expedite their orders and collect only data which is necessary to complete those orders, supply services, ship items and prepare invoices. No stored data will be passed on by us to third parties.

  10. All agreements, subsequent changes, amendments, subsidiary agreements etc.  must be evidenced in writing. For these purposes e-mail fulfills the requirement of being written documentary evidence.

  11. Business is governed by Austrian property law. The application of UN laws applying sale and purchase are explicitly excluded. The language of the contract is English. Without exception, in any disputes arising out of this agreement, the court of jurisdiction is declared to be the one exercising jurisdiction in the local area of our head office.
