Ritz / Cameraworld / Wolf / Whatever (I found 2-3 other sites IDENTICAL to Ritz/Wolf) has the same thing going, and lousy ratings...

When I was looking for the K20D, I ran across like 3-4 sites ON THE SAME PRICE COMPARISON, that were all Ritz!

Talk about stacking the deck....

Well, to be fair, Ritz is actually a legit, if not exactly professional-service retail chain which has been buying out other retail chains for a long time, (like, Fotomat and Underground Camera in the 80s,) ....apparently Wolf and Kitz and such like are regionally-known names they also bought out or merged with as retail camera shops,mostly dependent on film processing, went into decline recently.

Now, what kind of deals you might get, or is it worth it, that's for you to judge, but the different names aren't about flying-by-night. Not exactly competetion, when it comes to online sales, but hey.

Just got today the K20D I purchased from Adorama, and OMG, what a dang CAMERA!

Geez what I have been missing with an 8-year-old p&s!!


I just charged it, stuck in a 4GB SDHC card, and just started shooting anything (wife and dogs got VERY annoyed, as did the kids!) and I was just floored!

Man, am I going to ENJOY this thing!

Thanks for the comments/reviews all - this thing was WELL worth the coin! RTFM....
