Every bought from here..

I'm just wondering if anyone has purchased anything from this web site...

http://store.yahoo.com/bestpricecameras/index.html

The prices are the best I've ever seen Like the XL2 for 2999.99
and even the Optura XI for 699.99... Sorry if this breaks the rules but just wondering if there is something I don't see here.. Thanks

You've heard it before, I'm sure, but once again:
"If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

Those prices are way below the actual dealer cost for an authorized dealer. You can't get something for nothing. It's definitely bogus... a rip-off waiting to happen. Those people unscrupulous prey on the greed of a lowest-price shopper.

I called one of these scam artists a while back. Their ad doesn't tell you that it's a "body only" price , but they won't sell you the body only. catch 22. Also you'll pay extra for the box, cables etc.

Chances are it's also grey market. A crapshoot on quality.
