Beware. They seem to be very hit or miss in regards to customer service and returns.

The rebate is only for full-time photography students.

I've bought the 31mm F1.8 and 50-135mm F2.8 separately from Abe's recently. Apart from them wanting you to call to "confirm" the order, I had no problem. The second time, when they emailed asking me to call, I just replied and told them that I was told the first time that I only needed to call because it was my first order, and that I was not interested in any filters or other accessories. (To be fair, it was mentioned when I called for the first order, but it wasn't a hard sell by any means.)

They're no Beach Camera or B&H or Adorama, but I would consider buying from them again if they had something I wanted for a good price.

I ordered my camera yesterday in the afternoon and paid for two day shipping.

The memory card shipped first via standard UPS two day but for whatever reason the camera and batteries were delayed till today so shipped the package Next Day Air to keep their two day shipping commitment even though I did not pay for next day shipping. They are awesome! I love Amazon and hence why I order almost everything I order online from them.

If I can save one person from dealing with them I'm happy,especially a pentaxian

there supposively suppose to be fixing up their customer service and if they are good for them but the small amount of money saved isnt worth the risk in my opinion
