That is the same price for Gov employees. This link is for those who are eligible by the terms and conditions.

I wonder if someone is going to be in trouble?

No one will be in trouble, but if you didn't order this morning... I'd check the shipping time. Looks like it is up to 6 or 8 weeks now. I'd say Sony definitely has something in store, hence the price drop.

Thats 2143.15 out the door. No way Sony dropped the price to Apple on this----That would really piss off some of their big retail customers like B&H. This is simply a major faux pas.

If is is a mistake, Apple is covered. The fine print does say "Apple not responsible for typographic errors"

The deal is done. No more cameras from Apple. I agree that it would be a major problem, but why would Apple update the shipping time, and tell someone who called earlier in the thread that it was the legit price? It's very curious. I guess we'll know if prices fall elsewhere in the next few days. A sudden reduction of 30%, and Apple sellig their entire stock in a few hours sounds pretty fishy to me... maybe I should be hanging ou in Area 51.

Did anyone here buy one of these cameras? Did you get a shipping confirmation?

What the... I'm willing to pay $1400 for an HC1, and now this shows up? I gotta take a breather. Wouldn't this do better in low light vs. the HC1?

My order status says estimated shipped by April 3 and delivered by April 5. My friend just called Apple and they said they don't accept orders on FX1. I think it is a typing error and I don't know if they are going to honor all orders.

And also, I can't see the "Apple not responsible for typographic errors" on the apple store page.

Couldn't pass this one up.
But what's up with the Estimated ship date on this thing???
I checked my order status with a rep and they couldn't give me specific details, but they were pretty certain it was overestimate.
