    Apparently this dealer is going to personally deliver this via first class air travel.

    It shows as $432 to me in NM, but that is for next day air.

    UPS ground is $89 and that is not outrageous

    apparently, 'outrageous' is a matter of some considerable subjectivity. I'd definitely call $89 for a domestic shipment of this fine camera outrageous....in the extreme!

    I would assume that the seller screwed up and contact him asking for the real shipping charges...

    Well it does say in the item description that....

    "PLEASE NOTE: This camera is big and heavy and will require two large boxes each weighing about 20 pounds (about 9.2 Kg) for safe shipment, please ask for a quote to your location to avoid a shipping cost surprise!

    UPS now ships by size, not weight.
