The point is this: Every time someone clicks on that lens promotion for B&H from this website and then actually make a purchase from B&H money is made by the owner of the website. Since B&H is the largest reputable dealer in camera equipment, many links will be listed on this site and many others as it brings in income. This is not going to stop.
Buyer beware.....as always...but as someone pointed out, that lens is not in the promo.
Be happy...I bought the lens several months back for $2300!
It's a great lens and I have been using it a lot so, oh well!
Ok now, this is true, anyone can join it actually --- its the affiliate program - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/find/affiliates.jsp
Many websites do this but
Monthly commission begins at 2% with the possibility for increased percentage based upon performance."
So it's really not that much "income" unless we were all buying 1dx's in droves from b&h by clicking on the link here.
Chuck..I am not saying there is ANYTHING wrong with getting compensated for all the great stuff that is put together for all of us on this website...my point was that that reality figures into anything that gets posted here. It's basic commerce 101!
