Well, the chances of them honoring this price are slim, but I said fugggit and ordered one anyways. This is a $1300 lens.

Man if I had an extra 200 that I could possibly have in limbo for a while I would be all over it.

EDIT I caved......
admin
They don't charge until they ship.
What will most likely happen is they will send an email stating something along the lines that there was an error and blah, blah, blah, too bad fr you, but here is this nice $50 gift certificate for your troubles.

Best Buy? Give you a reconcilliation gift??? I'll believe that when I see it.
admin

Right, more like "...if you pay the $1100 difference we will include the extended warranty for an additional $120...."
MOD

I think I've received reconciliation gifts before? But it might have been like a 25% off coupon or a $25 gift certificate.

Hmph, why did I get charge $225 and not $219?
MF Charlie Chan 10 years ago
Tax I think.

I think I figured out what happened. It's listed under Point-and-Shoot. So, I'm thinking that some webmaster or whatever posted it wrong and didn't notice it because it was under a different category.


Hmm?

I don't think it was a very good idea to post this and my suggestion is to take it down immediately. The odds of any of us getting this lens now that so many people have mobbed the site are slim.

I know this sounds selfish but it would be best if orders for the lens trickled in to best buy rather than flooded. They'll catch the error quite quickly now.

It's worse than selfish, it's intentionally disingenuous. Just my opinion. Best Buy is the bad guy, but "two wrong"...

Richard,
This has been posted on extremely large forums by others before I posted it here. Having it here isn't going to hit the breaking pointnas it has already been hit.
I appreciate your suggestion, but I am not going to take the post down.
Richard- PRO 10 years ago
No, problem, just a suggestion. We'll see how things work out tomorrow.

But, I stand by my suggestion that telling everyone and his mother may mean that no one will get the lens.

No one is the bad guy, not Best Buy and not the OP, it's a matter of not overwhelming them with orders at one time which will no doubt lead to them figuring out why and fixing the mistaken price.
admin
Unfortunately I heard about this on a large photo forum that got it from an even larger photo forum. I didn't think posting it hear would hurt anybodies chances.
I hear you and see where you are coming from though.
I appreciate your input.

i'm egging our local bb if i don't get this lens for the advertised price.

Ha ha, I will bring an 18 pack and join you.

18 pack of eggs that is.
Richard- PRO Posted 10 years ago. Edited by Richard- (member) 10 years ago
Do you think they even have in stock the number that have been ordered? And, does anyone in this thread buy enough from them to know if they will honor a mistaken price? It's not like this particular lens is a huge seller even though it's coveted by many of us, the rest of the Canon world would never think to buy one at any price.
admin
Shawn Thompson - Lake Superior Photographer Posted 10 years ago. Edited by Shawn Thompson - Lake Superior Photographer (admin) 10 years ago
I would bet they have minimal in stock and actually order them from canon if needed.
The chances of them shipping is slim to none.
What I am hoping to get out if it is a gift certificate or a X% off on a future purchase code.

I say we get everyone to chip their 5 buck coupon in and get the lens and then have a dance off, winner taking the lens and honors.

not bad. i'd enter knowing that i'd never dance anyway, but at least it's good use of the funds.
MOD
Karl W. 10 years ago
so like 8 people bought the lens so....

$40?

$1,300 - $40 = $1,260

Almost there!
