Price for 583 on B&H is 199. the 383 is 125. I wonder how this flash stacks up?
Thanks for catching my mistake.-- hide signature --
Living and loving it in Bangkok, Thailand. Canon 7D - See the gear list for the rest.
I had a similar experience at estoreonline, so let the buyer beware! it is the typical bait and switch, they state that the Nikon sb600 is in stock, new, with full manufacturers warranty, but then call with a "problem with your order." They say that it is backordered from Nikon, although in reality, Nikon has discontinued this model. For the inconvenience, they will sell you the $299 vivitar 583 for $199. As stated above, B & H has it for $189. I intend to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, against estoreonline!
A year later and estoreonline is still doing the same thing. This also happened to me and I made the mistake of buying this flash. Used it 3 times and its a piece of junk. Would suggest saving for a sb-700. Beware of this company!
