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.

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.

Somebody the law first, the judge eventually would oblige to.

Since the price displayed is not 'dérisoire' (absurdly low, e.g. one tenth of the price proposed by other sellers), the e-retailer must deliver the product, even if it means for them to sell at a loss.

For more elaborate considerations, see the following link if you read some French (ore use an automatic translator):

Prix erroné et refus de vente | LeGuide.com

Of course, they can cancel the order and you'll then have to go to court to obtain satisfaction but you'll most probably win the case in the end. Or you can use viral methods on the Internet to threat to damage their reputation, leading them to revise their position.

You could ask yourself whether experienced internet buyers and Pentax lunies like us couldn't tell a wrongly priced from camera from a genuine offer. :P Or am I being the advocate of the devil (FNAC) now?

Thank you for clarification.
