<soapbox> This should be a sticky. B&H and KEH are tops. Adorama if you want to do something different. Most others (yes there are exceptions) are bait and switch hard sells that want to load you up with crap. </soapbox>My brother is looking to buy a new body and is thinking of the d200 or d300, any recomendations on where to purchase one and has anyone heard of or dealt with soniccameras.com? Prices here unusually low.
Ditto!There should be java or whatever does it that every time this site opens puts in inch high letters on the screen:
Go to www.resellerratings.com to learn if a certain seller is good or not.
I know, before you bother to say it, it would be annoying and you'd be tired of it after the second time. It might save people lots of grief so it would be worth 2 seconds.
I bought a Nikon P&S from Cameta via Ebay. The camera is a POS, but the transaction was smooth.I also have bought off B&H and can recommend them. I am also looking for a D200 body in the next couple of weeks; I have a question to ask forum members which might also be of interest to Jarema. What are your experiences dealing with cameta camera on ebay – I know they have a good rep, just want confirmation from you guys here. Also I can get a “mint demo “ D200 body off them for around $150 less than a new one from
B&H – is it ok getting one of these or would you think its better paying the difference and getting a new one from B&H?
Stop making sense!All these "I buy here or there" answers, and not a single piece of advice NOT to buy the D200 new? You can get a used one, with hardly any clicks, and a grip and two batteries for under $800, right here on the cafe, with some patience. FredMiranda is another good place to look. I got scammed on Nikonians, so now I tend to stay away.
