1,909.99 + Free Shipping

I've never purchased anything from these guys: http://bestpricephoto.​com …57_1207&product​s_id=17452 (external link)

But they seem pretty legit from what I've read.

I wouldn't be so sure. Their package deals show the 5dmkII with ef-s lenses. That won't work. If they don't know that, then I wouldn't buy from them.

9.03/10 on resellerratings (external link) ... for what that's worth but I do agree on the combo kits being advertised wrong.

I agree with the both of you. And that's why I didn't get too excited about the deal, even though it's better than what I got from Adorama w/ the 4% cashback. I wonder if Adorama would price match this deal. Any ideas?

If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. I would bet that they will not sell the camera to you unless they first talked with you over the phone..That is when they would admit the lens was a "misprint" and try to sell you the correct lens at double the normal price. Hey no one sell these cameras at a loss!! You can't stay in business that way.

Doesn't sound like a case of 'sounds too good to be true'. Amazon had the 5D mkII on sale for 1900 on Sunday...

Yea, your right. But there are a lot of businesses out there that do exactly as I had stated. I just looked them up on the Reseller Ratings website, and they are rated pretty high with over 300 reviews. But going with the dealers you trust is usually your best bet.

Even crazier is that they just dropped the price even more: http://bestpricephoto.​com …57_1207&product​s_id=17452 (external link)

Good point as I see a Best Price Audio and Video (Ohio) on the list but not BestPricePhoto.com.

They don't seem like legit. I've gone through their reviews on reseller ratings, and most seem to be left within the last 6 months. Sounds weird to me since they claim to be in business forever ;)

And I see great one-liners, but then followed by extensive negative feedbacks from the actual buyers the way I look at it.

I planned on buying a 7D from them, but after seeing that their customer reviews were all within a few days of each other, I did more research and found this: http://teleoscope.blog​spot.com …ck-webb-version-just.html (external link)

I'd stay away from that company.

B&H has it for 1999.99. I'd rather spend the extra $90 on at B&H where they are trusted then a place that isn't too trusted and save $90.
