yeah technically we're all suppose to pay a "use tax" on everything, no matter what we buy

We're suppose to take the initiative and file a tax with the boe. But nobody really does this on small items. And it doesn't really flag their radars either, unless it's some huge purchase (car, mona lisa, space shuttle)

I looked, even though you can avoid sales tax, the cheapest merchant would still cost more than through Amazon direct + tax.

OP, check out B&H. Don't know what the going rate for these are, but they have one for $300.

I searched, and this is what I see. Let me know if I'm looking at the correct item.

Ah, no I was looking at the silver edition. Didn't realize there are black, silver, white and whatever else with different prices.

Good luck with that. Only one seller available...And it's not a "Fufilled by Amazon" type.
