    They list really great prices and seem to have a decent rating on
    resellerrating.com. Has anybody in the group dealt with them? What was
    the experience like?

    Never heard of them...which is usually a red flag right there.
    Many scam shops go through a cycle of continuous name-changes...to side-step
    the ever-present bad reputations attached to former names.

    Stick with the sure things (www.bhphotovideo.com, www.adorama.com,
    www.calumetphoto.com ) and you'll be happy.

    I had great service and pricing from h1photo.com on a camera body and
    lens.

    Check their prices carefully. They're slightly lower than B&H on some
    items, but far higher on others.

    The major complaint about them on resellerratings is that they ship gray
    market without telling you in advance that it's gray market. Check the B&H
    site and you'll see that they sell both US market and gray market and tell
    you which is which so you get to decide whether to go with the gray market
    model and save a few bucks or with the US market model and have a warranty.
    Camera Box doesn't do that.

    This particular practice would put them off my list but YMMV.
