    RUN. AWAY. NOW.

    Always check those camera shops -- and any online shop -- with ResellerRatings.

    It is probably a scam, in the future if you have to ask if something is a scam it probably is.

    hahaha. Thanks for the immediate and resounding answers. I thought so - just wanted to make sure. Found the sale thru google shopping site so thought with the recent retail sales there was an iota of a chance it was real.

    Any good sites out there to track the legit online price for the D300?

    ResellerRatings turned out great for me a couple years ago when I saw Canon 5Ds going for $869 on some stupid scam site.

    I eventually got my 5D from B&H. No problems with them at all. If you're ever in Manhattan, check out there very large brick-and-mortar store. Quite an operation they've got there.

    ^^^^ yeah that.

    mr ken rockwell says it best on his site several places when begging for money. if you find a price significantly below any of the above mentioned be warned.

    I do know someone who purchased a D40 through a super discount place with an ebay store. Funny he didn't realize how taken he'd been and thought it was normal how much more he ended up paying when they sold him separately everything that came in the box. Battery, cords, manual etc... he ended up paying about $200 more than he would have through Ritz or Wolf which was ~$200 more than B&H.

    I think newbie members should not be allowed to post URLs.

    Eh. In this case, I think he was asking a legitimate question. Most spam postings here don't make it past an hour without being flagged and deleted.

    Strange how there's really only ever one possible answer to the question "Is this too good to be true?"... ;)

    Ironically there is an ad for a 209$ d40 at the bottom of this thread.
