Next best price is $499 at Amazon, $599 elsewhere. Solid price for such a new camera.

I'm guessing it isn't grey market -- meh is a decently reputable dealer as they used to be part of woot.com (but left following Amazon's acquisition of the site).

Does it comes with a 1-year Canon USA warranty?
Or is this a grey market camera?

Thanks!

What is this garbage excuse for a website?
I got a good Blendtec blender off of meh so I wouldn't consider it a "garbage website". They're basically a woot clone....

It's actually a new company started by the founder of Woot (after Amazon bought Woot).

Honest question. How does a website like meh (or Woot) sell something like this $100 cheaper than Amazon? I'm not questioning the legitimacy of the website or product, but just a little confused how a monster of a retailer like Amazon is getting killed on price from a relatively tiny competitor.

Amazon has massive overhead, Meh does not. Meh has one product to move today, that's it. They got this in bulk or from a store out of business, overstock, or whatever. Amazon usually has huge mark up.

This camera states digic 4+ sensor. I thought this was supposed to be the latest model.
My DW's Canon Bridge camera has digic 6. (SX60 HD). Maybe DSLR's are on some different advancement rate? I am not a big shutterbug by the way. Just doesn't sound right.

The one on sale is the T6, not the better T6i

The t3, t4, etc. are very stripped down compared to their t3i, t4i versions.

Unless you're going for 'my first dslr', spring for the i versions, the added quality and functionality gives you more room to grow your skills.

I would wait for one of the camera bundles from adorama or buydig witht the large $350 rebate. Authorized dealer and better price once you sell ink, printhead and paper on ebay.

Clearly the pictures on the page were taken with the camera model for sale; which they admint. If you go to the flickr page you will see the mushroom picture was taken with a Canon 60D and a 50mm lens. Neither of which is for sale on that page. Also, you can't be certain what camera the other two pictures were taken with. I can tell you with 75% certainty the lens used to photograph the young lady was not the one that comes with the camera they are advertising. I'm out.

UPDATE
It was pointed out to me that I missed a paragraph on the page stating these were not taken by the T6. I still do not like the fact that they used to pictures from other cameras and other lenses to demonstrate their point. It seems sketchy to me. That said, I don't feel it is right for me to call meh's tactics deceptive. So I removed that from my original post.
