Most of the "cheap sellers" are known for price
tricks, many for periods of years. I trust your friend
escaped without an attempt at "bait-and-switch", an
overpriced additional warranty, accessories that
are FAR cheaper elsewhere (and without which the
camera is somehow "not available right now"...;-),
and a reasonable shipping charge. And I trust
that the original accessories were included, and
not "extra", and that if grey-market or open-box,
he was told that it was... (These are some of the
tricks of "low-price" sellers...) So, when can we
see those comparison frame-grabs, huh...? ;-)
