I am happy to help out my fellow photographers! You will drop your jaw when you see what you can do! The files are sweet. Sorry i have only tinkered, i wont post anything until i have time to really capture something.

I have bought most all of my camera gear from Norman Camera since 2005. They have always done their best to help me. I know i can pay a little less by not paying taxes online but to be honest sometimes you just gotta help out the business locally so they stay in business and keep thrivin. Also they have always matched prices from reputable dealers online. I have bought some specialized stuff from B&H, Adorama, Hunts and Calumet but only because Norman didnt stock the item i wanted. If they dont have a memory card i want i'll go with B&H. I have found Adorama sales people to be more curt and less helpful, its kinda like what do you want attitude. I am not trying to bash but thats how i felt so its rare i get something from them anymore.
The other reason i buy local is if anything isn't right you can go right to the store and they fix the problem.

The people at Norman Camera were so nice and helpful.  Sometimes when I call B&H I feel like I need to be apologetic because they seem annoyed with me.  At Norman Camera I felt they wanted to help me out. Great customer service!

Hey, thanks for the note. Ordered from their website, mentioned in the 'note' field that I'd love to know when it was going to ship (Body Only), they called me almost immediately and said today.

Good customer service.

I hate to keep blowing up this thread, but Norman Camera is acting fast.

Just got the email confirming that my order has shipped, tracking number included and all.

They've been awesome. Within 2 hours, I ordered my body, got an invoice, tracking number, FedEx tracking update notification, and a personal email thanking me for my order.  I had my original preorder with Amazon, a backup order from Crutchfield, and well this one took the cake. Though Crutchfield was awesome with me too.

I canceled my order with B&H at about 2:45 CST. Placed my order with Norman at 3:00 and it'll be here tomorrow.

BTW, the guy I spoke to at B&H was very courteous and professional. I was impressed with both him and the guy I talked to at Norman. I couldn't believe how fast he processed my order! I had the e-mail in my in-box by the time I got back to my computer.

$30 for overnight shipping doesn't seem so bad when you're spending $3,500...

Funny, I was told the same thing. Why would they tell multiple people this?  I bought at 3:45pm EST.

I ordered mine after you ordered yours, by about 15 minutes.

And my invoice says 3:50 I'm assuming that's est. lol at least 3 of us were told we got the last one. I don't care as long as one actually gets shipped out.
