It's Christmas Eve !!
« on: December 17, 2012, 07:51:43 PM »

I just checked the tracking number and found out my 5D3 will be delivered TOMORROW !!

Hadn't expected it until end of week. Isn't B&H just the best!

B&H rocks!  I don't have any outstanding orders with them yet I got a package from them yesterday and this morning UPS notified me that they are going to deliver another package today.  Yipee, suprise gifts!

Just curious, why did you buy from B&H when there are all these people selling it for $400-$600 cheaper than them?

Mine arrived yesterday! With the 24-105mm L kit lens and a 100mm L macro! Your in for a treat what a beast so much better than my old 7D.

Bought mine from DigitalRev, saved over £1000. Prices are crazy here in the UK, no brainer buying from them as there is no import tax to pay.

Quick play last night and the ISO ability is madness!!!!

Probably because B&H is much more trustworthy than the eBay retailers.

I don't want to say thing I shouldn't in public. But for my circumstances, B&H is the most economical AND most dependable of any vendor I could use. I also have a long relationship with them, and I've got sort of a loyalty thing I guess.

For some of us, spending $2000-$3000 is a huge purchase. To save $400-$600 from unauthorized dealers on Ebay......NO THANKS

Another thing to be aware of is some folks who bought from Ebay dealers reported getting a grey market product... not all of them but some of them.

I bought myself a house for X-mas haha. But it probably only cost a tad more than that car, so... I'm shooting with my 60D and sigma/tamron crap haha

Probably because B&H is much more trustworthy than the eBay retailers.

+1 for supporting reliable retailers with a workable return policy, a staffed customer service department, real people behind real telephones,  etc.  B&H is among the leaders here.  Adorama in the past has been a little quirkier but  recently they are great to deal with as well - they even refunded shipping when they slipped up and didn't ship 2-day after their recent holiday break, during which they shipped no orders.  Good experience with Amazon too. and they all use real credit cards. 

So yea, I'm rather partial to the big three.

to each his own, to be sure.  bargain hunters love the chase and risk takers come out very well sometimes.  the game is just not for me.

If you are patient, especially around the holidays, B&H usually have some of the best deals out there.  Especially some of the package deals they throw together.  Can't beat them.  Plus they are always great to deal with.  I have also met a few of their reps at conventions and seminars and they are first class all around which is why they continue to get my business.

Ordered my latest lens from B&H because it was a great price ($1139 for the 8-15mm Fisheye with free overnight shipping). 

I always FEEL better when I buy stuff from them, knowing I can always call if there is an issue and that there are people there.  They've never given me any grief about returns or exchanges either.
