LOL, at a princely $199 off. I would spend $200 more and get a warranty.

Well, I didnt want to say anything since it may be the OP's camera... but i agree.  Its actually only a $98 discount on a $3198 camera.

And yet 3 days ago people would be waiting months to get one. By the way, you guys are not native indians are you? Because last time I checked people have to pay tax, so $3198+tax, probably more than $98..

What about a warranty? It isn't worth saving $100 if it's without a warranty.

Even worse because it's only $98 off.

Even without Tax it's not worth it without a warranty.

Would be a different story if people were still waiting for the A99ii. But the A99ii is available from a reputable retailer for $98 more + tax(on $3198).

Seriously, what would YOU prefer?
A) Brand new camera from a reputable retailer for $3198+tax
B) Used camera with unknown history from someone they dont know for $3100

$3200 is a lot of money, would you seriously buy a used product from John Rando to save $98+tax?

I am not trying to dump on your posts, but you have to start at something reasonable.   If you try to sell on Ebay, they charge 10%, and you have to pay pal... etc.

The Sony warranty actually transfers to the buyer, as long as a valid proof of purchase is provided.  That being said, for $98 more, ...

Ah, good catch. Yes, at that I would just buy a new one.

And If I wanted to dodge sales tax, I could drive right up US 3 and order it from Hunt's in Manchester.

The guy selling it is a Sony ambassador so its basically new. Anyway, now that its in stock, it doesn't matter. I know where I live, with taxes the savings are north of $300, for basically a new camera with transferrable warranty. That's a lot better than half the stuff in the B&S forums these days.
