5d MKII Purchase Question...
Posted 26 October 2009 - 05:14 PM
I was searching to purchase a 5D MKII online and found the body for around $2600-2300 everywhere except Supreme Camera.
why is this site able to sell the 5D for so much cheaper than Amazon and B&H? Is there something in the specs that I am missing?? Or did I just find a good deal?
I'm always weary of good deals...lol... i've been burned before.

I would be certain that they will charge your card and then backorder the item indefinitely until either they or you cancel. They would use the interest on your money. Having been in camera retail for 10 years, I know the schemes. Be careful!

A lot of them take your order the charge you extra for things that should be included in the standard package eg.. battery, charger, lens etc... Knocking the price back up to something thats not a great deal.
Or they can be grey imports that don't have US warranties
Not worth the risk

What I'd like to know is why the State of New York doesn't go after these crooks for running bait and switch operations?

But beware grey market and scammers. You WILL get burned. It's not often you can do better than Samy's or B+H prices on new gear. How do they do it? Volume, volume, volume - plus a LOT of satisfied, return customers.
