    I was on another forum (shame shame) and someone posted a link to this saying they ordered it and it was fine, except that it took forever. He said it came with the 1 year warranty and was not gray market. I'm guessing it's somebody that works for this company. Anyone else ever heard of it? It's sad how man people get "took" by places like this. It says they're a member of the BBB but I couldn't find them there or on Reseller Ratings.

    There is a 100 rebate at B&H so you can get it for 1400 or so. That other place, as mentioned... they must charge an incredible shipping rate... delivered by a pimped out Cadillac, I hear... lol

    risky as the domain was registered june 26th 2009... no history. Fact is... Canon and Nikon have set prices on all their products which makes for a relatively small margine of profit for the small stores. Rarely will you find deals like that from a small chain (or even larger). High volume stores like adorama and BH have more leverage with Canon and thus can deliver at lower prices... but not even that low.

    If it is too good to be true.. it is.

    I've found several lenses that cost $0...there's no way this could be legit.

    Sounds too risky. I would love to get that lans for $600, but I am really leaning toward this being a scam. If anyone tries it, let us know. :)

    Yeah - they list the retail price as $0, while their price is $600.

    Why would I pay them $600 when this lens retails everywhere else for $0??



    :lmao:




    Wow, did anyone look at those accessories down the side? I think they just moved all of the decimals one place to the right...

    Oh. **** man, order 10 of them!

    On the link in the OP (50mm f/1.2 L) they had a listed price of $600, but retail was $0.


    Still... Who can possibly believe this?

    ...Looking around more on their site.


    Wow, I can buy a 2 hour battery for the low price of $200. Or, I could go for the 10 hour battery for a mere $400...

    The people at B&H must be fools. They only charged me about $50 for my 2-3 week battery. The people at Wal-Mart are even dumber, they only chared me a few dollars for the 2-3 month battery that my 10s takes.


    WOW! I just noticed that the Canon GL2 (camcorder) is also free! ($2-3000 elsewhere)
