Just ordered one!
Let's see what happens...

Even in the picture it shows a 17-55mm.

Even in the picture it shows a 17-55mm.

Also, the price differential is right - i.e., the 60D+17-85mm shows a £50 savings, while the 60D+17-55mm shows a £589 savings.  Looks like a great deal if they deliver on their offered product!

I didn't get a phone call, but just looked at my order status and it is on "At warehouse - dispatching soon".

yeah my order status is the same.

the only thing that worries me is:

"For delivery on Friday 31st December 9999 between 11:59pm - 11:59pm"

don't think I'll be home for that time XD

And besides, the 5D3 will probably have been announced by then....

bad news...Tesco are calling cutomers to cancel their orders "because of a pricing error on the website"

to be expected i guess  :(

from looking on the other forums it sounds like most people have now had their orders cancelled.  i received my call 10 minutes ago to cancel the order i placed yesterday.

Yes, but sadly, the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM still probably won't be available for purchase yet.   ;D

Bummer.  Looks like another case of, "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is..."  At least in this case, it wasn't a scam, just an error.

While not unexpected, they haven't removed the sale page or changed the price on their web site yet.

Will at least save me the dilemma of what to do with it all!

Sorry for causing all you guys (and girls?) to get your hopes up... Still it was worth a try. 

I guess it could've been worse, suppose they'd despatched you all a 60D and 18-55 kit lens, then you'd have had to mess around returning it for a refund and I don't know who'd have picked up the postage tab.  That would have made me feel really guilty.

Still no change to my order status yet. No calls either.

If they were to send the wrong kit (not as described) then I believe under distance selling regulations they would be responsible for paying return postage.

What happens if you refuse to cancel the order ?

Surely if something is advertised at X price, they accept an order for it, they have to honour the sale ?

It was a obvious typo, and the terms of sale that the customer agreed to specified that the sale could be cancelled and money refunded.  Its wishful thinking to think that they would give away some very expensive equipment over a Typo.

I had the same thing happen to me, I ordered a 7D the day they were announced, and a few weeks later, Amazon.com cancelled my order because their price was wrong by about $200.  This wasn't a obvious typo, they just speculated on the actual price and started taking orders.  Pretty sleezy.  They didn't even give me the option of paying that extra for it, so I lost my place in line for a early delivery.

I ordered from Adorama instead.
