Well, 0% financing is back for 2 days. The Z8 is as low as $129.05/month.


This doesn’t make any sense. 129 for 24 months is $3096. I would definitely get the Z8 with this is the deal.

It's the way the finance company (bread something or other) hooks people in. It says payments "as low as" $129, but that is not the 24 month term, it's the extended 36 month term (that doesn't have 0% interest). They try to hook people in with the lowest payment possible, which puts them out of the 0% interest deal, which then nets the company more money.

If I was a working photographer and already had the money, but wanted to spread it out over 0%, I could see using this deal. However as a hobbyist (which most of us here are), if you can't afford to drop $4000 on the body all at once, you probably shouldn't finance it.....
