I spot price mistakes on SD quite regularly

Correct. Price mistakes happen often than some people would like to admit, even the mod mentioned about $1100 70-200 f/2.8 IS (from Dell, no less) a few years back. If you doubt it do yourself a big favor, get out of the computer world and go check SD once in a while.

More often than not they won't honor the mistakes and life goes on, but sometimes you get lucky and that's how you get those deals of the century. It's a no-loss gamble.



5D3 and a few lens
es.

You guys need to think this through. Say you are selling your Car in the classifieds. The newspaper messes up and put a 4 in place of a 9 and lists your $10000 car at 4500 instead of 9500. People show up to buy the car. Do you sell it to them for $4500?

Exactly. Most of the big sites have disclaimers that indicate they don't have to sell something if it's a price mistake. There's nothing that says they have to honor a price mistake and if it makes someone mad enough that person has the right to not shop at that store anymore.

Bad analogy.. If they handed me the 4500 and we shook hands and then as they were about to get in to the car I said, "Wait a second"....

Technically, they took payment..

Although, that's the seller's protection of Internet sales.. In a store, you have the merchandise in your hand and are out the door..

Your analogy includes a 3rd party screw-up. I would think Canon's website is maintained internally.

If it is indeed simply a typo or something along those lines you may have a point. Not sure of the rules that govern internet commerce. At least one poster here has stated that he/she has seen that price before on a refurb'd 24-105 (might have been in the employee catalog however).

Bottom line...appears no one here is getting this price and I'm back in the Buy-Sell forums.

They do not "take payment" until they charge your credit card and ship the item. They took an order. You filling out a form online says "I want to buy this item for the listed price, please charge my credit card and ship the item" The order is not completed until they finish their half of the deal and obviously they (or you) generally have to ability to back out until the item is in the mail.
