For everyone's entertainment and horror:

The infamous: Brooklyn StoreFronts (note links to other similar sites for NYC and NJ)

I have always stayed away from Abe's. I figure that if the owners don't know the difference between Maine and New Jersey, they likely would not know how to properly process your order. My former office mate bought his K10D from them and suffered through the process of the "confirmation" calls (plural) and the repeated attempts to up-sell/cross-sell.

If you want to be sure that you are going to get what you ordered in a timely manner, well-packaged, complete, and with U.S. guarantee, go with B&H, Adorama, or 47th Street (or maybe NewEgg).


P.S. For a real adventure, order a Russian lens from one of the online stores that specialize in such things. Quick to charge you, slow to ship, even slower to actually take delivery (at least 4 weeks). Then there is the condition of the item on receipt...
