No the camera was clearly labeled with the big L and listed for full retail price at the Ritz stores. Actually, come to think of it 2 Ritz stores had the big beautifull viewfinder( I swear the icons were larger and more in the middle of the screen) and 1 Ritz and 1 Circuit City(and my new one) had the tiny viewfinder and icons.
All were definetly the L model.
Oh, ordered it online for only $464 or so shipped. Thought it would be 10 days but came in 4. I have to wait 2 more days to get the memory card from another vendor a more professional photographer recommended.
AAAAARGH. Can't wait to see what pictures it takes. They look great on the big vf in 5 second playback. LOL.
