They show a different item on the picture. I bet that's the item they will ship out. I dont think Walmart is rich enough to cary any L lenses.

They do a have the 50mm 1.2L if you look for it there is a picture of it listed with the wrong description. I guess we will see.

i know this is kinda unrelated...but is the 55-250mm always that cheap there?...$160...that's a pretty good deal in itself...might be time for me to sell my 70-300mm, and switch to the 55-250mm...

oh wait...that one's a mistake also...i think it's supposed to be the 75-300mm...christ this website is horrible

Well, there is really no way to lose on this deal.

Worst-case with site-to-store shipping you are out the cost of driving to Wal-mart. If it isn't the 1.2 then just take it to the front and return it.

Best-case you get a $1450 lense for $250.

Every time I see one of these threads it makes me curious. If you go to the bank and cash a $500 check and get $600 back from the bank what do you do?

Is a retailer posting the wrong price much different than a teller or cashier or whomever making a mistake and giving you too much cash?

But people do take advantage of retailer mistakes, and many are on the watch for them.

I'm very tempted to pull the trigger as well for the heck of it.

EDIT: I placed a ordered. Worse comes to worse, I will show them my print out and throw a fit in stores.
