    I'm looking for a reliable source for used Nikon equipment, primarily
    lenses for my D7000. Would appreciate your thoughts.

    They are very reliable. If they have what the OP needs, their selection
    is very good. Other reliable vendors with competitive pricing are:
    Adorama, Calumet, Koh's Camera in Bellmore, NY, Cammeta Camera in
    Amityville, NY.
    I suggest the OP call for telephone help, rather than just use the website.

    then a garage sale is just as good, if it has what you need.

    one part of reliable is having a wide selection which increases the
    chances of finding what you need.
    keh in atlanta. all they do is used equipment, with the occasional new
    item for some reason. they are very reliable and very reputable and
    their grading is very conservative. bargain grade is generally in very
    good shape, while excellent condition is often indistinguishable from
    new (other than a box).

    what for? they'll only answer during business hours (and not on
    saturday for b&h), while websites are available 24/7.

    Might be even better. I once bought a Rollie at a garage sale. Unless
    you have lots of time, you would travel a lot to find garage sales they
    had what you want. I don't understand your comparison.

    I only recommend those stores that I have personal knowledge of. Since
    I've never dealt with them, I can't recommend them. I'm sure there are
    lots of reliable stores.

    Websites are not always immediately up to date and can be confusing.
    e.g. Calumet has multiple outlets. One telephone call and someone will
    tell you immediately what is available. Other places like Cametta sell
    both through a brick and mortar store and on the web through eBay. A
    simple telephone call can save lots of time.

    web sites are almost always up to date, however, some sites are poorly
    cameta is closed right now, so your simple telephone call would have to
    wait until tomorrow. meanwhile, their web site, along with ebay (where
    they sell a lot of stuff) is available any time. a desirable item could
    sell before they reopen to answer the phone.

    Is the need that urgent?

    If I order from their website at night, will the item be shipped before
    they open? (Yes I know some companies have fully automated shipping.)

    Will I be able to negotiate with their website?

    Tell you what.

    You don't call and I sometimes will. I even go into brick and mortar
    store. About a month ago I called one company and saved about $50 on an
    Whatever floats your boat.
