    I remember hearing about royalcamera before, but I can't remember if it was a good or bad comment :p Anyone have experience? This indeed seems too good to be true.

    *in my best George Takei voice: HAHAHAHAHAHAH*

    Here's a real price. They have come down quite a bit.

    That's only $150 more than a D70.

    I think the warnings go for any "too good to be true" offer.

    Probably not. The reviews say that the camera is grey market, if you want the legit one, you gotta pay double the price. If you phoned and threatened laywer action, you may get better results.

    So, basically, what you are all telling me, is that I should buy my digital rebel from these guys??? Cuz, ya know, they ARE the lowest price on the web. Ok...I'm gonna go place my order now.
