ok, i will be in the market for a new body next week, D300! local guys are a good $175 more than b&h so im shopping the net for prices. i found some places $100 less than b&h but im not sure i want to buy from these places. what are the thoughts on buydig.com?

i would like to buy from an out of state dealer to save the tax if anyone has any other suggestions.

He will definately be right in or below B&H.. no tax since hes in PA... and shipping will be the EXACT shipping cost... so you wont get over charged there either..

looks like i will be giving him a call next week then. even if he is around $1700 it will be a better deal with no tax.

*And since you are in central NY... make sure you call early... you will probably have it the next day using UPS ground... another thing B&H will never be able to do...

i placed my order today, with Allens. not only is there no tax since its an out of state store, but he had the best price i could find from reputable dealers and it was only $15 to ship. with shipping i still payed less than B&H's sticker price.

I talked with Allen, apparently Ross has talked to him quite a few times!

I was going to recommend Allens too. You will probably get the order in one day. I've ordered things from him as late as 4pm and gotten them the next day via UPS ground. It all depends on whether they deliver from Latham directly to your house or not I guess.

Yeap, I have used Allens too. I even got to speak him myself. I used him on the recommendation of Ross. Good choice!

Im telling you, the guy (Allen) should become an NEF sponsor...
I keep forgetting about them and using B&H (which I really have no problem doing as i get Next day ups ground from them) but I'd like to save some $$$ too!
lol
