    Never had any problems with B+H. I have heard negatives about Abes, however.

  3. I would strongly recommend that anyone reading the original post view it
    was a great deal of skepticism. I appears to be almost a reverse of the
    collected experiences of those here, including myself. I suspect it is
    nothing more or less than the work of a dangerous troll.

    I'll invite peoples to make their own choices as far as reseller are
    concerned, but I have to add that I've bought from B&H for years and
    never had a single unresolved issue.

  6. This would appear to be a spoof as it is 180 degrees out
    of phase with the experience of most people who post here.

    hmmm based on George's camera knowledge and advice I put as much faith in
    this as I would in a person holding explosives who says..."Hey! Watch this!"

    they probably don't like the Sigma SD10.

    Skepticism, my ass.
    It's from a preddy; this means it's bullshit.
    Be realistic, and recognize shit when you see it.

    Of course it is. It's the George Preddy experience. Total bullshit.

    I normally try not to reply to obvious trolls, particularly a troll pretending
    to be our regular troll.

    But in this case, clearly our troll has reversed his ratings. I've personally
    had dozens of experiences with www.newegg.com and everyone was good.

    Yes, this drivel has been posted before. The three "thumbs down" companies
    are among the very best places one can order things from. And I've used
    all three many times as have a lot of other people with great results.
