Any experience with Abe's of Main? Good price on a new body, but haven't heard of them.

Yeah, it's starting to look like a place to avoid. Looks like the push a lot of gray market stuff.

This is a new outfit that's trying to scam people with name recognition.

I do my best to keep them off this site, linking there will get a post edit etc.

I don't know much about the others such as the one you named. What I do know is that the above named companies stand behind their products, have excellent support, and will do whatever it takes to make it right for the customer.

(except that one time Adorama totally screwed me and afterward never responded to the emails that the adorama person that registered here said I should send)

But ehh, that truly was an isolated incident. Most people have nothing but good things to say about them.

I usually use those three, but the body I'm looking for is $30 to $50 cheaper at the one I named for a factory refurb. And since they are listed as a dealer on Nikons site, I'm pretty sure it's not a gray market camera.

Ok, I contacted B&H. They are price matching for me.

Woot!

I love that these several year old bodies are still hot in today's photoworld. Mark of just how good they are.
