    I've decided to pull the trigger on a D700 body and I'm not finding any availability. B&H, Adorama, Ritz, Allen's all on back order. Anyone have any info on a reputable mail order source with a body in stock?

    Bob,

    Beach Camera is reliable, but they also show limited availability. I have bought from them five times, and they delivered promptly as ordered with no hassles of any kind. I would use them again.

    Abe's of Maine show "available." That was also the case when I ordered a 35mm f2, and it took two weeks two show up, so available does not mean "In Stock."

    Good luck.

    In the past, I had major problems with both of those retailers. "Fool me once shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me". I've decided to put my name on the list at Allen's Camera.

    I purchased my 24-70 mm f2.8 from Allen's. They called me one morning, as I was planning an unrelated business trip that took me within 20 miles of their store, I had been on their waiting list. I did not want to buy a lens that expensive, without at least seeing if I was comfortable with the way it felt on my D300. It is now the lens that stays on the camera. I had called Allen's because of other Cafe members recommendation and they lived up to the reputation.
