Hi,
I happened upon a site called "Royal Camera . com" and they claim to be selling new XL2's for
$2079.00. That's $1500 below B&H, so I'm more than a little suspicious. I called the 800 number and the guy claims they are brand new. Has anyone ever heard of this company?

I have seen posts that mentioned a site that had dealer ratings but can't find it now. Anybody know that site?

Thanks

Yes, it's too good to be true! Royal is one of the scam outfits. Stay as far away from them as you can!

They will try to sell you another $2000 worth of junk. When you say no thanks, after to 100th time, they'll send you an e-mail that the camera is not in stock.

Remember, you get what you pay for.

it's.... www.resellerratings.com - go figure ;)

Royal Camera btw is 2.3 of 10 stars.... not.... good.

www.bhphotovideo.com is always a good bet. $3,599.95 there though.
