Default Amazon accidentally sold a $13,000 camera lens for $95 on Prime Day

Amazon dun goofed on Prime Day by listing high-end camera gear that usually sells for thousands of dollars at the fire-sale price of $95. Petapixel has an article with screenshots of gleeful shutterbugs' bargain purchases.

“Literally everything is $94.48,” one member writes. “I have bought like 10k worth of stuff that was like 900 dollars total.”

“I got a $13,000 lens for $94,” another member writes regarding their Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS order. “LOL waiting for the cancellation but that's like 99.3% off.”

Other members spoke to Amazon customer service about their order and were told that the order would indeed ship.

I actually searched for cameras on Prime Day, but didn't find anything that was discounted.

Yeah, that's what the thread title says.

They were selling bodies for $94 also.
