    Remove from the crosspost (and replies) especially when you are
    talking about US stores....

    Take a look at:

    They both look pretty grim.

    If you're buying mail order, particularly internationally, you have two
    reliable choices: B&H, which sets the standard for ethics, integrity and
    reliability, and Adorama, which is also a reliable mailorder dealer.

    I guess you need a new keyboard since your shift and "o" key stucks.
    Top replies are another no no...

    I posted in both NG's (and only in these two) since I want to buy
    internationally but live in Australia.
    Does it make sense to you?

    No it doesn't make any sense to me. You should post two seperate messages,
    would take about an extra 5 secs with cut and paste. As most of your
    replies will be US based you could see them in and you may
    also get some responses from

    I will get a new keyboard today, never noticed that "o" key problem but
    noWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW you mention it I have seen it and will get it
    looked at.

    It makes sense to those of us who have sense. The top post comment from him
    pretty much indicates an anal retentive net-oldbie who wishes we would all
    dissapear from HIS usenet.
    I would recommend avoiding both the places you list. They both have bad
    reputations. Both lure you in with low prices and then do not honour their
    advertised price unless you buy a pile of overpriced accessories. There are
    other games they play too. These are sleazy operations.
    I do most of my buying from Adorama but I don't think they are into
    international sales. Here is the web address anyway
    If they don't I know B&H does
    Both are honest, sell stuff at the price advertised and don't play any head
    games with their customers.

    They have no address at their web site. No non-WATS telephone number.
    Clearly trying to hide. But a whois on their domain name finds:

    1323 East 15th Street
    Brooklyn, NY 11230
    1938 McDonald Ave.
    Brooklyn NY, 11223
    Dealers in Brooklyn are bad news. The only one here that has gotten
    acceptable reviews in this newsgroup is a.k.a.
    Focus is a long time camera dealer here, and may be okay. Just they seem to
    not focus on digital cameras.
