Saw this add on facebook (Canon EOS 50D for $679):

http://allstateelectro​nics.com …41c481201140602​70e396e7b2 (external link)

Does this seem too good to be true? Their other DSLR prices aren't good, so maybe this price is a mistake?

I searched rellerratings.com and google but didn't find much about this seller. Anyone ever dealt with All State Electronics?

Lol, just look at the prices for accessories - like the charger for an LP-E6 battery for $600. Run away quickly!

Nearly every day someone asks this question, but the answer is still the same: yes it is too good to be true.
