Anyone know anything about this reseller?
That Canon CL2 package is just under $1400 and includes a crapload of stuff.
I checked B&H and they cant beat that.
Under reviews I read this store is reputable. Anyone disagree, or have I found a good deal?
They are really cheap… But I don’t trust it, check google for shop comments.
How can I make this one clear enough…
DO NOT BUY FROM THESE GUYS!!!
Seriously, check out their reviews at Reseller Ratings.
Tese guys sell what’s called grey market goods. They buy a camera,probably from B&H or some other respectable service. Tey then strip down the camera. When you order, all that you’re going to get is the camera body itself. No battery, no cables, no remote. They probably won’t even give you the lens hood!
This is, of course, technically illegal if the product is being sold as "new", since Canon only sells the camera as a kit to legitimate resellers.
Look at the reviews. Over 70 people have reviewed these guys, and most of them were screwed in the most nasty ways imaginable.
If you buy from them, you can’t say I didn’t warn you.
PS – Don’t bother trying to get a refund if you do buy this thing. Grey market dealers will use the "RMA" hassle to prevent you from getting your money back.
So on a strict $1500 budget, what do you suggest?
What about these guys? They have a 5 star review.
more of the same brotha. that site is the same as the rest of the b-s’ers
i just went through this whole process, i searched for days on end trying to find a good deal for a GL2, and it always comes down to this: if it sounds to good to be true, it usually is. especially when it comes to cameras from online vendors. i said screw it yesterday and went through b&h, honestly, you can’t beat a GL2 for 1750 after that rebate. it really seems to be the cheapest, most reliable place on the web.
another approach i was thinking of doing was ebay, every now and again you can find a gl2 for under 1500, usually almost brand new. i was very close to doing this, but i just really felt more comfortable with the reliablility of b&h and how many people had said and felt the same thing. the choice is yours, but ALWAYS check http://www.resellerratings.com
