Well as you said.....www.newegg.com (external link) is NOT a scam operation, but some on the list are. With that thought in mind NewEgg maintains that they are a authorized canon outlet, and they directly link to the rebate form at canon from their product order page.

I have asked both Canon and Newegg to clear this up for me. I am considering buying the the 20d camera (as a backup) and a 50mm f/1.4 from NewEgg and I don't want to miss the rebates I would get.

I found this list of sites that seem to be following the bait and switch tactis, and might be safe to assume they are not Canon authorized. I know of some of these personally to be very horrible, and the rest, well, just be careful and ask the right questions before handing out your credit card number...

For those questioning whether newegg.com is an authorized dealer; I just got off the phone with Canon and they verified that they were an authorized dealer.

I have a doubt in the validity of the Canon authorized website seller LIST.
EXPRESSCAMERAS.COM IS A SCAM. STAY AWAY FROM IT

Hello, can anyone tell me if they have experience buying from best buy cameras.com. Their site looks very professional to me. Their prices seem to be very good. Any positive or negative feedback appreciated. I did not see them listed in m3incorp's thread

If you mean BestBuy.com I have ordered thur them three times with no problems. I used their local store to pick up my orders. great service

From experience I can tell you that newegg is one of the best online shop on the net. I've used them for almost every electronic purchase for the past 6 yrs and they get a perfect 10.

Adorama is one of the best rated sellers. I am their customer since 2002 and they never disappointed me. Their phone service is also excellent.


Two bodies left, some "soso" lenses, and still a lot of gear.....

Back on November 12th I received a response from Canon concerning their product code for a 40d with the 17-85mm lens kit. The Canon rep didn't know what it was, but he sent me a list of "authorized" dealers and a list of delaer that could not be verified. Below is the response from Canon. The non verified list is first.


Dear Mr. Roberts:

Thank you for contacting Canon product support, and for your interest in
the EOS 40D with the EF-S 17-85mm f4-5.6 IS USM lens.

Unfortunately, the only product code we have for the camera is 1901B004.
I honestly wouldn't worry about the product code if you are purchasing
from an authorized dealer.

We could not locate any information verifying the following online
stores are listed as Canon Authorized Dealers:

1. www.expresscamera.com (external link)
2. www.cameraexpress.com (external link)
3. www.buy.com (external link)
4. www.ebay.com (external link) (auction sites)
5. www.USAPHOTONATION.COM (external link)
6. www.inoax.com (external link)
7. www.fotoconnection.com (external link)
8. www.ccicameracity.com (external link)
9. www.electrodiscounts.c​om (external link)
10. www.digitalliquidators​.com (external link)
11. www.realdealshop.com (external link)
12. www.bestpricecameras.c​om (external link)
13. www.hotbuyselectronics​.com (external link)
14. www.vipcamera.com (external link)
15. www.zipzoomfly.com (external link)
16. www.simon.com (external link)
17. www.infinitephoto.com (external link)
18. www.amphotoworld.com (external link)
19. www.royalcamera.com (external link)
20. www.geniuscameras.com (external link)
21. www.shopsunshine.com (external link)
22. www.Us1camera.com (external link)
23. www.pcrush.com (external link)

Here is a list of some online Authorized Canon Dealers:

1. www.bhphotovideo.com (external link)
2. www.amazon.com (external link) (online stores with store fronts only)
3. www.cdw.com (external link)
4. www.ritzcamera.com (external link)
5. www.dell.com (external link)
6. www.jr.com (external link)
7. www.officedepot.com (external link)
8. www.staples.com (external link)
9. www.bestbuy.com (external link)
10. www.officemax.com (external link)
11. www.compusa.com (external link)
12. www.costco.com (external link)
13. www.adorama.com (external link)
14. www.focuscamera.com (external link)
15. www.walmart.com (external link)

As a general rule, it is not advisable to order from a website that does
not show the company's physical address and telephone number. Before
placing your order, please ensure that you fully understand the
company's purchase, return, shipping, and exchange policies; be certain
that you understand exactly what items you are getting for what cost.

We also suggest that you check with the Better Business Bureau
(www.bbb.org (external link)) to confirm the reputation of a dealer before making your
purchase. The BBB website has a search tool that can be used to get
information about a company based on the URL (web address) of their
website.

For further assistance, please call our Canon Presales Department at
1(800)652-2666 between 8:00 am and midnight ET, 7 days. The Canon
presales agents will assist you with product information and dealer
locations. Pricing for products on the www.usa.canon.com (external link) website will
be determined by the Authorized Canon dealers in your area.

We hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if we
can be of any further assistance.

Sincerely,

Erik
Technical Support Representative
