B&H has a niceexchange policy which is good and bad. bad in a sense that you can get returned lenses. I have bought lots of stuff from buydig and very happy with them. They do have 15% restocking fee from what I remember. Either one of them is good.

I've recently purchased a camera from Beach Camera/BuyDig that was clearly presented as having the USA warranty, but when it arrived, there was no warranty card.

When I questioned them about this, I was told that if there was a problem within one year, they would work directly with the manufacturer to get any needed warranty work done.

This sounds more like a "gray market" warranty than a USA warranty to me.

While I've had good experiences with Beach Camera in the past, next time I'll stick with B&H.

If you're looking for the rebate/warranty, avoid fotoconnection. I'll repost an e-mail I got from Canon Support regarding online authorized dealers (Note they say nothing about the quality of service you'll receive from any of them).

I've purchased through B&H and Amazon, been happy with both.

looks like you've heard from about everyone, but I'll through in my vote for B&H too. On top of everything else they also ship very quick.
