I really like the IS on my 18-55mm and 24-105mm lenses... But IS on this lens is another $400+

I have bought with both B&H and Adorama and they are both awesome. This is a link to a story about adorama customer service. I still cannot believe to this day she did all this for me. Being in Kuwait I had enough on my mind. https://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=7218474&po​stcount=15 I can say though, that both are good.

I had a bad experience with Adorama, so I would pick B & H.
I usually buy from Buydig or J&R and I have always had great transactions with them.

Buydig is a good place to buy. A few other reliable stores are Norman Camera in Kalamazoo, Mi. and a friend had luck with Roberts Camera in Indianapolis.

Both are good, and I use both depending on the situation. Adorama let me place an order for the 5DII battery, no charge until it shipped. They shipped it 8 days later. B&H won't let you place the order, they just told me to "keep checking every day."

I like BuyDig, B&H and Adorama. My main choice is Adorama. Have always had great service with them, and they seem to be a little less expensive. I'm waiting on a refurbished 85 right now from them with free shipping. Doesn't get any better than that.

Good Luck,


Ron

B&H has a good portion of my camera related purchases over the past 5+ years. Always had good experiences.

adorama first for me. when BH tried to keep the canon instant rebates a couple of years ago they moved to the bottom of my list in perpetuity.

besides they're never open when i'm ready to push the button :D.

I agree on the rebates, but both B&H and Adorama keep the same hours. You cannot order from either on Saturday.

Ive been to both, shopped at both a lot. I prefer Adorama as they seem to have a slightly better sense of humor - not really a great reason but its mine. They are both terrific. Great lens - good luck with it.

Have bought two 70-200mm2.8 (first one was stolen with the 30d it was mounted on, never turn your back on your equipment!), a 40d my 5d2 and a 100mm macro from adorama. Services have always been great.
With the length and weight of the 70-200 I'm glad to have IS. As is I'm working on always having at least a monopod attached. Why does it seem so many interesting scenes present themselves in low light situations?
Maybe personal taste?

Lets see same price form both, 600.00. B&H has free shipping. There you go.
go with the cheapest, or call one of them and tell them that the other has it for the same price and see if they will beat the price.

Never mind they both have free shipping so see who can get it to you the fastest.

Because low light is the best light :D It's what seperates us from the "snapshot" group.
