    Best online camera dealer?

    Looking for general concensus - which offer best price, delivery, and service.

    I've been happy using BHphotovideo.com , Ritzcamera.com , and newegg.com ( although newegg is not limited to cameras )

    I find it pleasant dealing with B&H since I live quite close to the actual store, but their online site is just as expansive as the store itself. I've heard some bad things about the quality of their packaging, though I've never gotten anything from them beat up.

    I've bought things from Ritz and used their 'we replace it no matter what ' warranty nice, worked lovely. However, it was a brick and mortar store, not online

    I'll second the NewEgg and throw in Adorama. Though I've never bought a camera from NewEgg, I've purchased tons of computer parts and their combination of price and service are second to none. Their shipping is lightning fast as well. I have also done business with Adorama. I recommend finding what you want on their site, then giving them a call. I recently called to ask a question about an item on the site, mentioning that I was shopping around, and the salesman knocked 10% off the price on the spot (and without me asking). Fast delivery as well.

    Add normancamera.com, my hometown store, to the list. They're great, though their prices can sometimes be a bit high.

    Did use adorama ages ago and they were great, but not sure that the prices are the lowest. Recently used Butterfly Photo, which had one of the lower prices to be found, and had a real good experience. Even returned a lens filter I decided I didn't want with no hassle.

    Found this site from another thread and checked it out. This company has very bad reviews. Take a look for yourself.
