    Any time a deal this good is online it is most likely one of those bait and switch tactics. You'll need to call in to "complete you order" and when you do they say they don't have it in stock but have this other "great deal" which is usually 2x the price of a typical respectable online reseller.

    If you find it well below what adorama or BH photo has its fraud. The order process for these places goes like this: (I know first hand I had to buy a 5D from one in a pinch when my 5D took a dive in a pool. It sucked because I knew I was gonna get scammed but I needed the camera)

    You place your order, order goes through, but then a little later you see a "problem with your order" message and you call.

    You call, and they make up some ******** of "oh we don't have the model you wanted, we only have the model with the METAL lens mount (or some other rediculous BS such as the "international package" and whatever BS they can come up with). Well this model costs xxx dollars more, then some fast talking sales guy gets on the phone and tries to upsell you generic accessories etc etc and you end up paying more then what you would in a store and GOOD LUCK if you try and return anything.


    As for me I called and said "I know your a scam site but I need a camera, I dont want any extra stuff, what will it cost" and the guy was actually honest and said "$3400" (which was $200 more then a new 5D at the time) Although their website said "$2500".

    I did get my 5D and a ton of crap generic accessories lol just in time for the wedding I needed it for.
