Really? 5d Mk.II for $1499?
« on: August 26, 2011, 01:14:11 PM »

This looks like an obvious scam... let alone the price... who pairs a EF-S lens with FF body. Found it hilarious.

Link Removed, poster is providing free advertising for a scammer.  (Google picks it up and elevates their rank in search engines as well.)

Anyone know about these guys?

Never heard of these guys, but note their return policy:
 We accept returns on products with in the 30 day return period on 35mm equipment with a 10% restocking fee. and 7 day return period on all digital cameras,camcorders,digital lenses and flashes with a 15% restocking fees. Restocking fees & shipping/ handling/ insurance fees will be deducted from the credit card that we have on file. Please note all discounted sale packages are at final sale and non-refundable.

So, since this is a discounted sale package, you get what you bought.  Might be legit, might be grey market, might be couterfit or non-working, but sale is final.  I've had some bad experiences trying to get money back from shady photography stores.  I'd pass on this one.

If a deal is too good to be true . . . it probably is.

I like the 4GB CF card for $250.  Places like this try to ram accessories down your throat when you buy the body, and if you don't get the accessories then your order gets mysteriously lost.
