(ENDED) Canon G7 X II drops to $599

As of a 10/4/16 recheck, the price returned to $700… We just updated the Stock Tracking page and we have an interesting development for the Canon G7 X II, it is down $100, going for $599 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. The starting price of this is $700. The shipping estimate however is a very non-specific “1-2 months” so if you need it by a specific date/event, keep that in mind. The limit is the same 30 per customer, so I don’t know if this is a sale or their price-computers accidentally price-matched one of the 3rd-party sellers.
