That second site is almost certainly one of the many scam sites; you'll order the body at a ridiculously low price, but before they'll ship it to you, they will call you and apply a high pressure sales pitch to get you buy all kinds of accessories at a stupid markup before they'll ship the body (if they ever do). Canon implemented a minimum pricing plan with all of their authorized dealers in the last year or so, meaning that they cannot openly advertise a price below MSRP (unless there is a current rebate going on) and that price would be well below that even WITH a rebate.
This all makes it highly likely that it is, at the very least, not an authorized dealer and at worst is a scam site.
I absolutely don't care about authorized dealer or not, i bought cameras, lenses, etc .... to "non" authorized dealers never have a problem with warranty or repair my gear !!
Having said that ... Snydremark got an excellent eye, like him, i do believe also that this second website is a SCAM !! just by looking at the comments, there is something wrong ... they ALL speak how HDEW is "wonderful" , just make a comparison with the comment on B&H or Amazon, 90% of the comment speak about the product they bought and do not care about B&H or Amazon, here on this scam website ... 100% of the comments tell you how marvelous is HDEW, and look at the url the main website is .... rtrk.co.uk ...
So not only few things going wrong, but plenty
My 2 cents > stay far from this second website
