    same here... nothing in 100 miles of LA

    an amazing deal if you can find it... at that price you could buy a couple and make a 3D rig.... or 10 and do 'Matrix' style bullet time... or take it apart and see how light you could get it and put it on a kite or a RC Helicoper.... or a helium balloon to the edge of space....

    Yep, good deal if you can get it. Which would require you living close to a Fry's store that has stock on hand. If I was lucky enough to be wandering through Fry's and come across this deal, I would try to buy as many as I could afford (if my wife wasn't with me) just to flip on evilbay or wherever for $175 or so. You could still keep one (it's still a good camera) and make money.

    Keep in mind a lot of these Frys deals are "in the system" only -- yes they advertise the price, but damned if any actually exist.

    I think it was a glitch..that price doesn't make sense. Maybe they dropped a '1' in there.

    I doubt it's a glitch. Fry's clears things out for very cheap. The problem is that Fry's takes forever to remove things out of their inventory system. So things that were cleared out a year ago can still be in the inventory system. There are many ghosts in the machine. Like this one. I have no doubt that it sold for this price, but that was probably a while ago and I wouldn't get your hopes up on finding one now. When did the E-P2 come out? Shortly thereafter was probably when the E-P1 was clearanced out.

    I don't know which two states you're in, but I'm usually in two states as well-

    They probably had 4 left in the entire USA, which mean a couple of people get lucky and about 1,000 others get a false alarm when they see that $50 price- ;)

    Well it says shipping not available, and only in-store pickup. It does not say what store they are at tho.
    however it says "Please note that we charge sales tax for AZ, CA, GA, IN, IL, TN, TX , NV, and WA. " meaning the stores are in those states.

    my brother lives in texas and the site said the 2 Huston and the Webster store did not have them.
    Too bad, I would have liked one too.

    I meant to post this - I called Fry's the day this was posted and he spent 10 minutes on the phone with me trying to find any store that actually had it. No one had any listed. He thought the store that originally posted the ad, (he said he had no way of knowing which store :rolleyes:) must of had a returned or display in the store for a while and they just wanted it gone.
