apparently they had made a mistake in the pricing so I am guessing everyones orders will be cancelled, $679 is still very competitive, so I will re-order for sure

I call that false advertising I'd call Dell and hold them to it or atleast ask for some sort of deal...but hey, that is just me.

that sucks quite bad, but isn't there anything illegal about that? they already offered it for that price and they shouldn't be able to cancel it should they? maybe it's just me but that sounds like something you shouldn't be able to do

call the attorney general's office in your state and the state that the sale is coming from and ask them. also ask them to investigate and get on dell's case about that. i believe you have a right to the lower price unless they specified prices could change at any time .

I agree, I was not happy but I have bought so much gear through them in the past and they have always given me a great deal, delivered quickly and stood by me. Unfortunately, they did state that prices are subject to change and also that they will not be held responsible for errors/mistakes in pricing and all pricing is subject to final approval. I think what has happened is there is a bug in the web page which allows a double discount and that double discount sells the product below Dell's cost?

no worries - it was certainly worth the try at that price. I can't wait for the 5400 to arrive - I have bought the lens hood, case, Ultra Memory, spare EN-EL1 and a SB-50DX flash, all I need is the camera now.

I called in the morning I noticed mine was cancelled and maybe I got a clueless emplyee but he reinstated the order for me at the regular price. There is a 3-week waiting period for the camera though...
