is it me..??? or have we been blindsided with price of SxS-1

Maybe l am not reading prices to well but initial prices for the new and supposedly cheaper SxS cards that have a shorter life span, in fact almost the same price. Who are the marketing people at Sony Head Office...they come up with a great concept to lure more EX users and lead us to believe that this is going to be so so great...then "wham" right in the kisser...lol
BH has them for $750 and the normal ' you beaut ones" (ok, that was very Australian) are
$844....
Come on Sony, are you guys for real...?????
I have seen the SxS - 1 cards a bit cheaper around the traps but drastic price difference...I think not..!!!
"Not a happy chappy'...cheers, Michael

I beleive there is an error on the BH site (I emailed them a few days ago but have not got a response yet...). 32GB SXS-1 cards are available from major US media retailers for $589 which seems To be the right price when comparing to standard SXS cards.

Thierry is correct. It has to be a mistake.

Still shows $750 on my computer, that is why I picked up 2 of the 8 gigs for $159
