I can confirm that the Calumet store in Cambridge, MA is officially open for (going out of) business.Were there decent prices on gear or was it like the early days of circuit city going out of business and everything is 8% off today, 9 percent off tomorrow and so forth and so on.
Discounts were 20% or higher on most stuff, the issue was selection. They had few Canon lenses and bodies, lots of Tamrac bags but only three Think Tank and one Kata. If you want 3rd party batteries, Promaster UV filters, and off-brand lens caps, you're in luck. Lots of PocketWizard stuff, too.
I picked up a couple of Honl snoots/gobos and a roll of white seamless paper. There was a 300/2.8 II in the Rentals window, I inquired about it and was told $3600 (!!!), I pulled out a debit card immediately, but the guy needed to check with the manager if that was a MkI or MkII price, and the manager said none of the rental stuff was for sale.
