I did the exact same. Thinking about ordering the cheaper one from Adorama and returning the one I bought from B&H this past Tuesday. Anyone have experience with returning items to B&H? Easy, or a hassle?

I'm sure if you let B&H know, they'll match the price.

Yeah, I'm gonna call B&H on Monday and see if they'll price match -- I'm guessing that neither they nor I want to go thru the hassle of me returning it :-)

I just pulled the trigger on a K-5 from Adorama. I wasn't expecting them to start selling them until midnight.

The free shipping is 7-10 business days though.
