Are these in the LA/OC area? I have seen ads too. I suspect that maybe someone is backdooring them. I wouldn't touch it if it didn't have a legitimate receipt.

Yes its the la/oc area , I'm in anaheim ca so I'm so damn tempted

This has "can of worms" written all over it.

Besides, buying the first generation of a sophisticated camera without an extended warranty is an invitation to horrific "we don't cover that" answers from manufacturers. You can't save the price of an unwarranted  repair - and you could get an email from Sony saying "sorry to inform you the camera you sent us for repair was reported stolen and will be sent to the police department reporting the theft for follow-up."
