Re: would you buy your 1dmk4 from RytherCamera?

I checked resellerratings.com and they have a good rating, but there some issues that immediately stand out as suspicuous.

First of all, they are selling the "import" version of the camera, which DOES NOT have a USA warranty . I would never purchase an item without a USA warranty.

Second, they list the normal LP-E4 battery as an "extended life" battery and are offering it for $199, which is a huge rip-off . This also makes me wonder if they have removed the battery from the package and are selling it as an extra, when it is supposed to be included. This battery can be purchased for $110 at B&H and everywhere else.

They are offering 14 different "packages" containing this camera coupled with tons of mostly useless garbage accessories, at highly inflated prices.

I would never trust this company. They have all the signs of a scammer reseller.

Also, they only have a total of ONLY 119 lifetime ratings , which really gives me pause. With a small number of ratings, its possible to have entered their own bogus ratings in order to skew their score upward. I'm not sure I would trust them.

Most reputable dealers have thousands of lifetime ratings.

I would not trust them, and I would not purchase from them. Here is a link to their rating on resellerratings.com. But take note of why you cannot trust their rating when taking everything else into account.
