No I mean call up some of the stores in question and they will tell you just what the posters here do.
have called up a store and personally confirmed that 5D3's are being recalled (or held), I would believe you. But I don't necessarily believe what 3 newly registered posters claim within 10 min of each other, nor a rumour labelled as [CR1].
The simplest answer is not that the OP was part of some vast paranoid conspiracy but that the OPs were telling what they legitimately were told by certain dealers.
You have a pretty low threshold for "Vast paranoid conspiracy"
Anyway, I was just saying that "I am not a troll" is not a very convincing argument, surely you must agree with that.
