Re: Think they might have got the price wrong

I have placed an order......but there T&C's state

7.5 The placing of an order represents an offer to purchase the products indicated by the customer and is not binding on us until the order is accepted and despatched by us. If a product shown on the website is unavailable, incorrectly priced or incorrectly described, we shall not be obliged to sell you the product.

I bet the order is cancelled.

Re: Think they might have got the price wrong

I have also jumped in. Am I going to regret this? I haven't yet had my confirmation.
I already have a 12-60mm so if it goes through I will be selling a brand new lens, there could be a good buy for somebody else as well

Re: Think they might have got the price wrong

I also got my confirmation email ten minutes after ordering - a pity tomorrow is Saturday as it's unlikely we'll hear anything until next week - why do these things always seem to happen at weekends?

T&C state that they work Monday to Saturday and that orders placed after 2.30 will be processed the next working day so hopefully they will process orders tomorrow and we might get it Tuesday.

Re: Think they might have got the price wrong

I came accross is independantly and ordered one myself. I was actually browsing around for the best price on an E-620. They've a good price on the body only deal there too at 499, but I daren't order both .
Looks like I'll need to speed up my body rationalisation if the deal comes off.
I think I'll be having a few bits on the for sale forum soon.

Considering you could sell the 12-60mm for nearly full retail price, does it really matter if it's not body only?

That occured to me also just after I posted the above, so I have just placed an order.

Re: Think they might have got the price wrong

I've been thinking for some time about getting an E-30 as backup to my E-3. Saw the 'deal' at Park on Thursday evening and thought it must be wrong - so I ignored it. Still there today so I assumed it must be correct

I have therefore also ordered it today on the basis that surely Park must be aware of the deal, if only for the fact they've received so many orders!

I already own a 12-60 so someone will get a new one at a nice discount
