Checked out Canon's nifty 50 tonight on Amazon. It appears I have gotten 20 of these $100 plus lenses for $5.80 each. Was only up for a short time before it sold out. Keeping my fingers crossed the company doesn't back out.

They kill them and throw the bodies into Puget Sound.

No really, they can't make someone sell you something. If they return you your money, you are all square.

Refunding purchases is very simple using Amazon and there are no repercussion.

Ordered a 100mm f/2.8L IS for $1 knowing it would be canceled, but would have hated myself if I didn't and it turned out to be some crazy promotion. Just got the cancellation email from OneCall.

Dear Valued Customer,

We are very committed to customer service and on-time delivery and strive for perfection on every order.

There appears to be a system error that has resulted in all of our items being listed erroneously with a price of $1.00. All orders placed at a price of $1.00 per item will automatically be cancelled and there will be no charge for such transactions.

We continue to investigate the cause of this problem with Amazon. We appreciate your support and understanding while we work to resolve this matter. If you have any further questions, please contact us from 6am to 8pm PST at 800-663-5255 for personal assistance.

Have a Happy and a Healthy New Year.
Thanks & Best Regards,
OneCall Customer Service

I will take one if this some how goes through. I feel like I should sit on amazon 24/7 waiting for a deal.
