Just seeing what website's best to buy from in terms of price...
I almost always buy from amazon, and one time from BH for my 17-55mm lens

What are your experiences with these companies? and should I add another website to the poll?

no...you asked about lenses...a couple years back ebay and bing.com had a 30% cashback promo...it was hard not to buy lenses off of ebay then...

also i find people that don't know what they have, and buy lenses for cheaper than what they are worth

B&H and Adorama are both excellent.

I put "Other" because I buy from both B&H and Adorama. Both are top-notch businesses and take great care of their customers.

I've used B&H for all but a handful of items in my kit. Customer support has got them a customer for life.

It is all about the Amazon Prime! $3.99 overnight shipping and I had my 70-200 2.8 II at my door in under 18 hours for an awesome price. If price is right and I'm not in a hurry I have purchased from B&H and newegg.com, but Amazon is my go to site.

Since you could only put one I put B&H, but I will order from any of the three, or AbesofMaine is one of them has a better deal when I need to make a purchase.

Mostly Fred Miranda and these forums.

B&H and Amazon come second.
