Ricoh GR @ B&H $496 !!
Posted By: odyseuss, 11-14-2013, 02:52 PM

Price was $796, but it is $496 as of now....
It is the APS-C Ricoh GR, right?

Maybe Adam will make a slip like this on his listing!

If Ricoh reduced the price to $496, they would sell millions of them, I think.

Just got an e-mail (following up on my call) and it turned out that this was actually a mistake.
Uh Oh ... Deja Vu again with Ricoh.

Well, hopefully B&H respects their word more than the Pentax web store

If they were priced $698 down from $798, I would think it was a sale. That price was clearly a mistake and while I wish that camera could be bought for $500, I don't think websites should be held over the fire because of a missed keystroke. They'll be $498 in 2 years when they bring out a new model.

You never know with stuff like this, though. A lot of sites make occasional "mistakes" just to get inventory to move when MAP is holding up sales...

And it looks like the price has gone back up again (except on the accessory pack: Ricoh GR Digital Camera Deluxe Accessory Kit B&H Photo Video).

Congrats to those who managed to secure the steal!
bad Adam.... you didn't know the #1 rule for such deal is "Never call"?

Bad news: now the story has changed. Just got an e-mail (following up on my call) and it turned out that this was actually a mistake. I really hate being misinformed by my contacts, but B&H has so many employees that sometimes things slip through the cracks.

I've inquired whether or not the lower prices will be honored. We'll have to wait and see until tomorrow, but I wouldn't be too worried if you already have an order in the system. Will keep you guys posted.
Thanks for the latest update Adam.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed....

Got a call from B&H this morning. They said the $496 price tag was a mistake.
They offered me $100 off from the original price if I'd like to keep the order.

Very disappointing. I'll be expecting a similar call.
