I vote Amazon all the way. Make sure it's amazon and not a 3rd party (like adorama). They ship so fast. I got 3$ one-day shipping on my 70-200 mark II and it arrived exactly on the date it said it would arrive. Amazon's price + shipping is cheaper than adorama and B&H when I was buying my 70-200.

I love Amazon. I think their customer service tries as best as they can, and yes they do own up to any mistake they might have made. Life long customer, that's for sure.

Amazon Prime is horrible....

Empties my bank account faster than anything.

Amazon service has always been amazing for me. I once bought a 22 foot ladder from amazon, which had been damaged during shipping. I sent a refund request through the amazon site and was able to not only get a return shipping label, but they arranged for UPS to pick up the ladder from my house, so I wouldn't need to load it in my car and drive it anywhere. And all this without having to even pick up a phone! Best of all, the cross shipped the new ladder so I got it in 2 days, while the first one was still on it's way back to amazon.

It has to be one of the most brilliant customer loyalty programs in history. Totally viral, too, because you can share with friends and family.

One thing I hate is that you can only put some stuff onto the no interest plan (for instance only if Amazon sells the item) but they don't sell everything. They have a 300 F4 but no 400 5.6, for instance.

This is why I don't like to buy expensive camera equipment online. An hour drive, round trip, and I can usually get what I need. If I do buy something online, I almost always have it shipped next day air even if it is UPS and someone will be home.

Amazon purchases have been great for me.

Third parties... hit or miss... no major problems, however.

Amazon is a great online source and one of the first places I look to.

I love Amazon.com. Their free shipping for $25+ orders is a money saver, but the experience is 100% better once you sign up for Amazon Prime: free 2-day shipping or $3.99 for 1-day is so sweet!

I used to buy all my gear from B&H. This year I became an Amazon Prime member and I bought my 24-105 and recently my 7D from them. Great experience, and the $4 overnight shipping rocks. And their prices are always right amongst the cheapest available.

I have (2) Caviar Green 2TB's coming from them tomorrow. :) Price went from $110 to $93 yesterday.

I'll add that my experience with Amazon customer service has also been outstanding. I've only had 2 issues come up and both were resolved in a timely and proper manner.


Something will be here later...

The lens arrived today, on time. It was new and unopened this time. I couldn't be more pleased. Took some test shots, focus was dead on from what I could tell. Will shoot more this weekend. Amazon rocks!
