Hence why I don't order a camera, I buy one from a reputable store. I walk out with the camera, saves a lot of frustration. I recommend this method regaardlesss of the brand of camera you use. Plus, if something happens to go wrong within either that store's or manufaturer's warrenty time, you have a place to take it back and deal with a real person, instead of a customer call center in New Dehli.

The irony of that... When I bought my 5D,... I saw it in a local camera store that usually charges a lot more for their goods than does B&H in NY..and here they even had one on Deno! I just about fainted when I saw that! Here is the thing on back-order everywhere I knew, and here they not only have it in stock, but on demo as well.. LOL.. Well, if that wasn't the only nice thing,...they were selling it for 3,199.00 while on B&H, and everywhere else, they are selling their's for 3,299.00.....so even with the WI sales taxes, I paid the same price as I would buying one from NYC with the shipping,...and I get to have my hands on it before I buy it! Amazing!
Yep,...I like to shop locally too... besides, it helps to keep these wonderful people in business,....and I often go to them in pinch situations..
