I've read a lot of negative reviews of the place that ships the flash. I'd be pretty cautious.

Well I ordered one, and paid through the amazon payments. So far its been deducted from my account and nothing yet about shipping. I read some of the bad reviews too so we'll see. I'll keep everyone updated if they ship or whatever happens. If it arrives its time to put an old 420ex up for sale, and maybe upgrade and sell an original 430ex.

I didn't really need one... at least that's what my wife would say, but I ordered on to go with my 580exII and 430ex. I read the feedback as well... and I definitely decided to use my credit card so I have a way to fight, but buy.com will usually stand behind and help. At least that's what they have done for me in the past.

Bought one also but from Focus Camera (parent co.) which is authorized Canon.. not sure if the Digital Foto Club is or not, as Canon has it by address on their site.
Time to wait and see.

Yup...believe the negative reviews of these a**holes. Guy just called me and said it was a mistake and the add was supposed to be for a pair of opera glasses. He offered to sell me the flash for lowest price on Buy.com ($280) minus a $10 discount. WOW...$270... no thanks. Good thing I didn't get my hopes up and already have enough flashes.

hmm I am waiting on a call now myself but will call Buy.com first.
Funny they don't sell any opera glasses in their store for more than $72.00.
So where did they get $210...

If you get Buy.com to have them honor the original deal please let me know. I wouldn't mind getting this flash for $211 like they advertised.

Got the call and they told me my money would be refunded in full.

Now I have to wait from 1-3 days

Stay tuned
