I bet someone mixed up the "price" and "you save".
Credit it to them if they ship at those prices...Xmas comes early.

You sure you don't want to order the kit? It's only another $620?

Yeah, they'll probably cancel them all, but I'd hate to be the person to come into work and see all those orders...

Has anyone received confirmation of their order being shipped yet at that price?

Yup, it's back to $739. It had to be a typo, but we'll see if they honor all of your $239 orders!

I guess I should have tried to order one too just to see if they'd honor it. I just wasn't sure how Adorama's reputation was. You hear so many things with these electronics dealers selling black/gray market stuff. It was 6AM here and I came into work early and checked out amazon's price and almost fell over. I thought "this has to be a mistake".......Boy if they honor that price to a few people, then I truly messed up by not ordering one.

Well against my better judgement (and shockingly with the wife's permission!) I ordered one too. I guess since I had it in my shopping cart already the $239 price stuck because it was back to $739 as soon as I finished the order.

Anyone want to take bets on how long it takes Adorama to reject the orders?

I've watched for years, and often partake in these price mistakes. They never ship but I've also never had my credit card charged before....who knows.

What is the return policy there? If I order and they change the price can I cancel the order.
Adorama has a good return policy. I rank them just behind BH overall but their prices are sometimes a little better on lenses but not on other things such as accessories. I got a used lens from them about 6 months ago that had iris issues. They paid for the return shipping and gave me a refund.


Edit: Adorams sells a few grey-market items, but they are clearly marked.

It wouldn't surprise me if Adorama honors these orders.
