Just saw that... But if you add a SD card, it is 1999€... That's likely the best price ever for a K-1 but the worst price you could find for an SD card ! I guess one can't get the best price on everything

It's ¢31, not €31: it's written 1264€31 in French; you would write €1,264.31.

There is a special offer: if you order before April 3rd and have a Fnac credit card, you benefit from a 0% interest rate on your purchase.

Obviously a mistake from Fnac but I'd try it too

No more K-1 for sale.
Orders confirmed, but wait and see... they happen to cancel sometimes, particularly when "abnormal tarifs" are made.
In our case, that's a -37% on public price, and they adverted up to -50% on the same page as a slogan, so i think they are in a bit of a juridic mess.

I am pretty sure profit margin aren't very big on the K-1. Who would sell camera's at a loss?

They don’t of course, but they also have to follow the laws. I don’t know French consumer laws but would not be surprised if its something similar as in Norway. Here, the shops can cancel orders or approve them quite freely. If they approve they have "signed a sale contract" with the customer and have a much harder time to cancel the order. Approved orders may only be cancelled if its something very wrong, to that degree that the customer should have known it was an error. That means small errors like 10% too low pricing must be completed. Large errors, like punching 200 in stead of 2000, is easy to cancel even after approval. I don't know what will be the outcome of -37% pricing on a camera, but I expect fnac to cancel all orders with wrong price, and prepare to take the legal battle with the few, if any, that wants to take it further. I also expect 99+% of the customers to understand the situation and let them cancel without any more trouble. Lets face it - it was too good to be true. Don’t make a difficult day for an fnac employee even more difficult. Wait for the official black Friday offers in stead.
