Canon 40D for $649, what's up with that?

...and who the heck is Best Price Cameras?

http://www.shopcartusa.com/P_Canon_E...?ic_campID=98#

And there are two others at this price too! I mean, B&H (where I get most of my stuff, just placed another order two days ago) is at $1299, same as my local dealer Milford Photo, and even Broadway Photo (who I wouldn't go near) is $999.

I know, if it sounds too good to be true...

But these guys have a five-star rating, with their worst review being three stars, how can they fake that?

Somebody's not telling me something.

???????

You don't think those five-star reviews could be fake, do you? No, say it isn't so!

That's less than half the dealer's cost. Something ain't right for sure.

I know this is an old thread, but I can't let this go without posting the real info on your linked store.
