I'm thinking about getting a black body-only NEX-5N from 42nd street photo. It is suspiciously cheap, however. Should I be worried? 42photo seems to be getting very "mixed" reviews around the net.

OK, here seems to be the deal:

(I sent an email canceling my order because it hasn't shipped yet)

The $359 order is for the store's "brown box" version of the camera. It's NEW BUT when they say it's just the body, it's JUST THE BODY (and maybe a lens cap). No strap, no battery, no booklet, etc. The SONY-boxed version with the SONY stuff that normally comes in their package is included. It costs $399 instead of $359.

They say they sell nothing but new items. No refurbished or used. They are a big discount store and try to offer the best prices.

I changed my order to the SONY "version" (like I would get from Sony) so it's now a $399 camera.

FYI.
