Canon 70-300mm L for $185....damn ethics.
Aug 31, 2012

This is a bit off topic, but I thought it would be amusing. I ordered a Canon 60D 18-200mm kit for a friend of mine from Amazon.com. They had/have a deal going to also get the 70-300mm IS for $185 after $250 instant rebate, so I ordered that as well.

It all came today, and lo and behold, what do I find? A nice shiny new 70-300mm L lens worth $1400 in the box! It seems the Amazon picker made a big mistake when putting my package together on the line.

Being the somewhat ethical person that I am, I just wrote Amazon to let them know. If it was a $100 or less I probably wouldn't have bothered, but I don't think I would have felt good about pocketing a $1000 mistake. I did say in my e-mail though that I would be more than happy to keep the lens....;-)
