    I was looking through Photo Graphic (I think) the other day, and came across an ad for Startlight Camera (www.starlightcamera.com). Their prices seem to blow EVERY other store out of the water. Lots of great deals for $100+ less than everywhere else. Has anyone bought from them? Are they legit? Are they gray market goods?

    Hey, I actually was thinking the same thing when I just purchased a sony f717 from 5starselectronics.com. I got this camera for $515.00 plus shipping. I called numerous times before purchasing and asked if they are refurb's or are they brand-new from the factory. They said yes they are brand-new, not refurb's and they get them from a third-party and that they are promo's. Not sure how that really works, but I guess it sounds like they are new. They also just emailed me and told me that the item is on backorder for up to 3 weeks too. So, who knows.

    If anyone else has some views on this issue please send them in...-JAred
