And another for B&H.

They sell grey market gear, as well, and I'm fine with it. If it's DOA they will replace it. I've never had a problem with a lens that wasn't self-inflicted (and off warranty).

If you are in a hurry, pay attention to their holiday schedule. They can close for a week for obscure Hasidic holidays.

I used to buy a fair bit from B&H, but have found that even though they offer free shipping to Canada now, that I can negotiate a price nearly as good from a local store, The Camera Shop. I was in NYC a couple days ago (Sunday), and thought about going there to shop, but I really don't need more camera gear, in fact I need to thin it out some. Dragging along a huge Pelican case full of gear when only a small part gets regular use does not jive with me, especially now that I am giving up an SUV to haul it in.

If you buy a Nikon camera on trip to Japan and it needs work, Nikon Canada will not touch it. Same if the camera was sold by Nikon US.
My first NIkon digital was a P&S bought in the US, and I had an issue with it, and had to send it to a US service centre, so when I got into digital SLR gear, I went with Cannon partially because the warranty is international.

BestBuy has also had some great specials recently on just about all electronics.

It's sad that cameras are now considered "electronics". Unfortunately, cars are going the same way. What happened to interest in the important parts, such as the optics of a camera or the drivetrain and suspension of a car?

Another vote for B&H -- I've used them for decades, always perfect service.

B&H is a good choice to buy your cameras from.
