Well, B&H offers the K-3 with a free flash that you can sell for around $300 ($450 retail value), plus they're an authorized dealer which means you get warranty:

AJrichie is not an authorized dealer, so I guess it depends on whether or not you want to roll your dice. $869 seems like too good to be true almost, though it could be worth a shot.

After a few people on the this site told me to read reviews I have decided to stay away from ajrichie . thanks for the heads up. This is the link to the silver body and grip for 869.00 . I wonder if they would send it cod.

This strikes me as a reincarnation of Broadway Photo - they used all the same bait and switch tactics, upsell attempts, rudeness, etc. There's a thread about them that was started back in 09/2009 (search 'broadway photo'). And a quick google search will bring up plenty of info.

As far as I can tell, Broadway is no longer around - so I wouldn't be at all surprised if ajrichie was simply a re-name of Broadway.

Yeah, read pretty much ANY of the hits that come up from a "ajrichie review" search, and you'll keep your distance unless you're daft.
