Looking to avoid the high NY tax and they have the same price as B&H on the lens I want. Anyone buy from them in recent months. Thanks for any input in advance..

They are great. I bought 5 expensive items recently. Super fast shipping and great products.

I bought a lens and a Pentax W90 (weatherproof) p&s in April from them through ebay. Both purchases were made after lunchtime and the packages arrived at my door in Massachusetts the next morning! Shipping was lighting fast. Also, I had issues with the Pentax croaking on me while on vacation and the 14 day return time had passed but they still did a full refund without any questions. They are awesome to deal with. I also bought a 500 f4 IS from them about 3 years ago and had a great experience.

Super-seller! They also have eBay store that did great during the last days of Bing.
I got 85L from them, 580EX and LCD TV with no issues. They are as good as adorama/b&h.
They should be a #3 option after those two.

Agree with all the above. I've spent thousands at Beach Camera and would gladly do so again.

Beach Camera is definitely a legit place. I buy from them all the time, even great with returns. When bing showed up I started doing business elsewhere but now that bing is gone, back to beach camera. :)

as a fellow New Yorker i try my best to avoid ny taxes, both BeachCamera and Abe's of Maine are reliable stores. great prices and best of all since they are located in NJ orders usually only take a day or two for delivery.

A good site to check any online store.

BeachCamera, B&H, J&R, and Adorama. Those are very reputable retail camera stores. BeachCamera is best for New Yorkers...

I am in NYC too, and I usually buy my stuff at B&H and Adorama even with the tax. Sometimes I buy from J&R.I don't mind pay tax as I feel more comfortable to deal with seller/sales people/stores in person. I also have peace of mind when I buy local because I know I can always return or exchange should I find any problem with the item. But I had a very good experience with my 70-200 2.8 L IS II purchased last week from beachcamera ebay store. I called the customer service before placing order to clarify the return/replace policies. They are legit and good. Transaction was smooth and very responsive to questions and concerns. Highly Recommneded!
