Sizzle I'm shocked you didn't mention hometown favorite Cameraworld.com. Have you had any experiences with this company?

I've purchased from CW many times. They have a fantastic showroom downtown. Only problem is, their showroom prices are higher than their mail order prices! So it's actually cheaper (on items over $100 or so) to order from CW online and have it shipped 1.5 miles.

Camera World is always slightly more expensive than B&H though, in my experience. Plus B&H sells stuff like audio gear too. I bought my Mackie studio monitors at B&H and STILL haven't seen them for a better price, 1.5 years later.

Holy Smokes! I just went to B&H's site. Not bad at all. I definitely will be looking to try them out. They recently sent me a catalog and they have an enormous amount of products. Glad to hear they are recommended.

Thanks for the info everyone,I wasn't finding anything through the search engines other than manufacturers and stores that only took phone orders.

B&H is far and away the best. Cameraworld no longer can compete with B&H price-wise, nor can they compete with B&H's selection. Honestly, it's no contest any longer since Cameraworld stopped matching B&H prices - they can't afford to anymore I guess.

another vote for B&H....I just got a brick of about 20 rolls of 100 speed tri-x, and I've already consumed about half of it
the only one unpleasantness I've had with B&H is once I broke the red lens I got a week after I got it, so I had to get a new one...but that was my fault
I need a new camera, though. My curent camera is this old manual camera, that Does ALOT for a manual camera but I want to get a rebel 2000 or something that I don't need to always worry about manual focusing...I've reached that point in my photography were I am starting to get tired with focusing and would love to have some auto-focus here and there. I did just developed some GREAT shots from yosemite though.
