Sent them an email and got this reply:

We are based out of Detroit, MI. but we have warehouses all over the U.S. We are an authorized seller of the entire Canon, Nikon, Sigma and Tamron product lines, including cameras. We wholesale to the public. Our company is DIREC2U ELECTRONICS. I can send you a wholesale pricelist of these items if you like.

I wonder if contacting nikon directly, and asking them if said company is actually an authorized seller, would produce any good results.

They aren't in resellerratings.com and there's the old saying if it sounds too good to be true....

The real owner of the website is hidden.
IMO, This has all the earmarks of a scam company.

The parent company,J.L. International Inc, appears only in two trade listings but has no web site.

Chances are that even if they were legitimate, they won't be able to deliver you a 600mm at the moment, since they are on very limited availability. At the most they will take your order and make you wait.

And we all know that if something is on limited availability, it is very unlikely that those who do have the unit to sell would be selling it at such a reduced price :biggrin:

Even if the price is decent, for that much money I wouldn't take the risk.
