Hi all.

Im trying to get Sigma 50mm f1.4 lens from Newegg.com since I got a coupon.

But the seller is 47st. Photo.

I got many computer stuffs from Newegg, but not from 47st. Photo.

Does anyone have any experience with them?

thanks.

I have bought a few small things from 47th street through Amazon also, they have been good. Haven't had to return anything though...that is when you really find the true colors of a company.

Newegg is reputable. 47th St Photo is reputable. So, the combination should also be reputable.

47th Street photo has a good reputation on Amazon. Their reputation at ResellerRatings (external link) (I always check them when buying online) is not so good. I think I'd pass.

I recently purchased a canon 24-70L from newegg and the only thing that scared me was the no refund option. Lenses can only be exchanged, so if you don't like it, you can't send it back. Thankfully I like mine. Over the years I have built 15 computers with parts from them and never had even the slightest hiccup.

I don't get this "pass through" marketing *#@&#^ we have to deal with now... if I wanted to buy from 47th street photo, I'd go to their site!

I love newegg, I love amazon, but I detest the "vendor" arrangement. YMMV.

Often you get the protection of the larger companies "warranty process" or "returns" without them actually having to deal with the product. Heck amazon sells the item under the other companies name but keeps it in their Amazon warehouse. Now this is mostly directed towards Amazon. I haven't done much with Newegg in the past years or two and I know they have really tried to match Amazon in the amount they carry. It's not just a computer super site anymore.

The reason is simple, and is essentially the same reason stores rent space in malls: traffic.

Amazon and Newegg are well known web sites which attract traffic.

Both Amazon and Newegg are very up-front with who the final merchant is.

People buy off of eBay and craigslist, which are the wild west compared with Amazon and Newegg.

Amazon has garnered some criticism for the behavior of SOME of their partners, but it is not nearly as wide open as the chaos that exists on eBay.

I've spent thousands of dollars buying computer parts from Newegg. I don't see how buying lenses from Amazon is any different from Amazon or BH. They sell non-grey market, new lenses?

I think you'll find it's very similar. :D

If amazon fulfills it, I think it's amazon. If they're just taking the order you're at the mercy of whomever stocks the product.
