B&H has always been my main "supply house." The last couple of orders have been disapointing from a turn around stand point. Has anyone else had this problem. My latest order has been mailed (yes I still use the USPS) about three weeks, a call to customer service today said it was "not in the system yet." David C.

My recents orders from B&H have been just as snappy as always. The Jewish high holy days (now) always slow them down as the owners are quite observant.

October is a jewish holiday-a-rama. Something like 13 days they can be closed.

But, considering they are open sun-fri 12:00 every other day on the calendar, grains of salt are given. Otherwise they are still same delivery as ever.

I've never been let down. I always use some form of UPS and have found that the shipping price is more than made up over what I'd pay locally (if I can even find the stuff locally) when I consider sales tax and higher prices. e.g. Canon 70-200 2.8L IS: B&H was at ound $1,550.00 with shipping. Local guy $1,999.00. I buy when I can from the local store but when it's a big ticket item it's B&H.

All right, someone else who uses the only branch of the government that has competition (who's willing to give the IRS some competition?) While I haven't bought anything from B&H since I was in their NYC store, I would compare turn around times to what's going on now so that you can see if things are getting slower or you are getting hyper.

I just ordered from B&H online on Saturday and it was shipped the next day. So far on time. Never had any problem with them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The only time they've been slow for me is when I didn't notice in big block letters that they were observing passover, or another religious holiday. Every other time they've been fast. Plus it's nice being a few states away because ground shipping sometimes is overnight shipping.
