I have never bought anything at Buydig, but they seem ligit.
There is an item cost about $2000 that I want to buy. It is available both at Buydig and B&H, but about $40 cheaper if buying from Buydig.

I am leaning toward B&H, eventhough it is going to be $40 more expensive because I have always known and trusted them.

Which store would you buy from?

Buydig is a legit company. I would buy from Buydig if the price is lower.

I've bought from both and no problems from either. I usually buy from B&H. But, Buydig had a sale on the 100-400 that was too good to pass up and B&H wouldn't price match. If I remember correctly, Buydig and Beach Camera is the same company.

Found these coupon codes for Buydig. Hope they help.

I just bought a Canon 70-200L f/2.8 IS II from Buydig and was completely satisfied! Their price was competitive and they shipped it within three hours of buying it!

I'd buy wherever is cheaper. Both BuyDig and B&H are reputable.

Although the item at B&H may not be more expensive if you factor in the "2% Reward".

Did you check all the other major stores?

I have bought several cameras from buydig. Because I am from NY, it saves me the sales tax I have to pay thru bh photo, price are also the same or better than bh photo. I also returned a nikon I had purchased, because the s100 had come out, I had the nikon for three weeks, there was no question ask, no fee for return, it was seem less......I highly recommend buydig....

BuyDig is also Beach Camera. They are a very legit seller. I don't think there is any question about how legit B&H is, they don't get any better.

I've bought from both and have received excellent service. I'm sure B&H will price match but even if they don't, if you prefer to buy from them rather than DuyDig, remember that you're only talking about a $40 difference on a $2,000 item. I know every penny counts, it's certainly your choice.

Thanks so much for input, everyone!
If BuyDig is Beach Camera, then they truly are ligit. Beach camera is my 4th favorite store (behind B&H, Adorama and Pmi Digital).
I guess both choices are good.
Thanks again.

I bought many things from Buydig/Beach when I lived in NYS. Now that I'm retired to Florida I buy most things from B&H. Both good places to deal with.
