We have not confirmed this behavior ourselves, though.
As always with an eBay deal, we caution readers to be careful with the seller, and check the seller feedback rating. We generally like to buy from sellers with ratings about 99 percent, although we'll make exceptions for fantastic deals. Ritz Camera, of course, is a major retailer in its own right, and thus we'd assume to be trustworthy. This is borne out by its feedback.
At the time of this writing, the eBay rating for ritzcameras is 99.1 percent Positive feedback. This is over 15,807 feedback ratings. We'd take this deal as safe.
Note: there are only a limited number of sets available, and there have been 12 sold in the last hour, at the time of this writing.
