Wow...perfect timing. I was looking for used 7D on Craiglist - for $1200, I'm going for NEW. Thanks

B&H won't match the price -- so Adorama gets the business.

Thanks, CR!!

Very, very tempting...

Whoa! That's a fabulous price for the 7D.

I've been debating the T3i (waiting on the T4i) and the 60D but put the 7D out of contention because of the cost. Is this a too good to pass up discount?

Am I missing something?  When I went to the Adorama site the only 7D's I could find listed at $1199 were "used".

I decided it was far too good to pass up -- outstanding value.

Since the price is SO low I also called to verify that it is a NEW unit -- not refurb or return or open box or any of that stuff. They say it's new product.

So, I have one on the way.

This only seems to work through the CR link. I think that's why B&H would not price match it.

You won't find this deal going directly to the Adorama site.

Looks like it's over. Now the CR link doesn't have the $1199 price.

Whoa! That was fast. I can't believe I was lucky enough to pull the trigger on the 70-300 this a.m. (Not gloating, just kind of stunned because I usually hem and haw and miss out on these sorts of things).

Hope it will be back or other vendors will follow suit for the sake of those who didn't get in on it.

I was about to buy a 7d at B+H, saw the link here, and saved myself some cash.
Sweet deal.
Thanks CR !

Thanks CR.  I've been waiting to pull the trigger on 7D upgrade from my 40D and was kicking myself for not taking advantage of the recent refurbished 7d sale.

I am thrilled to get a great price on new in time for the summer soccer season.

Pretty amazing.

It seems the sale lasted 12 hours or less, Sunday night and early Monday morning. You could buy a 7D for $1199. Now at Adorama and B&H, the price is $1549. A $350 difference!
