Is this site 100% legit?
im finding cameras for $100 - $200 less then what any other site claims... Would you trust it?

I took a look at the web site, they seem to have some good deals at first glance. When you take a closer look you will see that the "Factory Fresh" and Warranty claims are followed by an (*) and then they state that the (*) means unless otherwise specified. Well the (*) is there and I could not find an explanation for it.
A little more research shows that this web site deals in gray market merchandise. I would use extreme caution should you decide to do business with them.
You might try a google search "Bestpricecameras complaints" to learn more.

yea thanks Jim, i noticed the same thing but thought the thread would just fade away.
hoping i still have your attention:
i noticed amazon has very low prices on the sony a100 http://www.amazon.com/o/ASIN/B000DZH60O/ref=s9_asin_image_1/102-0002701-8161726
($696 for the kit) its listed 899 everywhere in my city and on most online sites. At first i thought it was because it came with only the one lens and not the big zoom but at American the 2 lens kit was 1200.
Also noticed great deals on the xti with the kit priced at 787?
I now have my heart set on the a100 but when the time comes is this site through amazon gonna give me a gray market or a legit warranted sony?
Amazon has a good reputation and I have had dealings with them in the past. I purchased an item that arrived broken and they were very happy to accept the return and replaced the item without any problems.
I was able to find locally the Sony A100 for $799, and the XTi listed at $899. Both are with the kit lens. So it looks like you could save $100.00 or so with the deals you are seeing on Amazon. I don't know if I would do so without an unconditional money back if it isn't what you expected. On the other hand I don't have anything bad I can relate to you about my experience with Amazon.com.
