Check out the Market Watch forum. Every other thread is a positive mention of them. They're in the top five recommended sites. They are reportedly run by Mormons, though, and contrary to all internet logic, close down on a weekly basis.

They are pretty much the standard for camera equipment. Along with Adorama.

B&H is one of the better dealers out there. I just ordered a EF 200 lens and it came in right on time - no problems whatsoever. They are great!

Not Mormon's--they're Hasidic Jews and observe all holidays. For instance, they close the store Friday night and sundown and don't open again until Saturday night at sundown.

That said, great store, good people, fair prices, I've spent far too much money there and have never had an issue.

You have to decide how fast you want it? Don't order on Friday, they won't ship until Monday. Order Monday morning, they'll ship that day. And how fast do you need it? I think 2 days is good.

Usually if you order something on a weekday by 10:30 AM they ship it that night. For me, I get stuff next day because they're in NY and I'm in CT... which is nice. :)

Don't think they are Top Five in recommended places to buy. More like Top One! I haven't heard one complaint about them yet.

No matter who runs the place, it's worth seeing and experiencing.

they would ship sunday if shipping companies weren't run on christian calendars:rolleyes:

if you order before 1pm friday they will normally ship it that same day. their prices are amazing, and customer service is great, especially at the store. you go to the right sections and the guys know everything about that topic. hell, i discussed the 1dmkiii with a guy at the camera section back last january, and he was pretty much on top of all the specs. i've gotten everything from lenses to esata cables from them, really good prices all around. only thing i haven't gotten from them is a camera body, since i only started buying after i already had my xt, and they where back ordered on the mkiii the whole time


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.

B&H is THE place to order from. No scams or upselling. Very quick service. Lowest legitimate prices.

B&H are the best. I have spent $10k with them in the last 3 months. I got what I wanted at great prices, great service and as fast as the shipping method I paid for.
Absolutely no complaints.

I buy everything from B&H! Their prices are competative. If your a NAPP (external link) member your shipping is FREE through B&H. I've saved hundreds of $$$ on shipping charges...membership paid for itself.
