Photographers - Best online store?

I'm looking to purchase a Nikon D3200 in the next week or two. Can any photographer recommend a great online store, one that might be having a sale over the upcoming holiday weekend? I like the stores that are predictable with their sales, like Overtons was for my pedestal.

Don't know about sales, but I've always had good experiences with B&H, probably bought a dozen or more cameras from them over the years. B&H Photo Video Digital Cameras, Photography, Camcorders

There is very little discounting on Nikon cameras & lenses unless they are directly from Nikon America. B&H is a good source, but you might also check Amazon - they have a better price & free shipping...

Thanks for the replies and information. I live close to the B&H store in NYC. Might have to check it out.

Some of the Amazon shops list the camera as built for a foriegn market or no warranty included. I find that suspect.

It's not just suspect, you can't get that camera serviced or repaired unless you send it back to the country where it was purchased.
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.

B&H in NYC definitely worth a visit. Amazing place. Just ordered and received an expensive lens online from their website. I could have saved nearly a hundred bucks buying elsewhere online but stuck with B&H because - confident of highly reputable, fair, great service and their high inventory turnover means you'll always get the most current version of the product. Those guys know their beans. So say I.

B&H is the best. BestBuy, Adorama and Cameta are all good also!

The issue is that Nikon Canada, Nikon America, Nikon Japan etc. are all separate entities. If your Nikon didn't originate from Nikon Canada, Nikon Canada will not repair or service. Same with others.

I would never buy online from out of country.

Of course what you are talking about is warranty service. If you buy gray market Nikon will act the same in each country and not honor the warranty because there is none, and that's why gray market buys are cheaper.
