Been dealing with them for over 20 years.
VERY reliable.

If their price is within about 5 percent of another vendor, I'd go with B&H, just because they're so reputable (better than average return policies, won't try to rob you blind, good shipping rates, etc.). Their sales staff doesn't even work on commission.

Make sure to check their used gear, too (you may find the lens you want in their used department). Also check keh.com if you're shopping used.

I purchased my latest DSLR (Pentax K100D) from B&H. They offer some of the lower prices for equipment, and have a great selection.Best of all, they don't pressure you to buy anything extra. They usually keep their stock status up-to-date.

Other than Buydig, and Adorama to an extent, I'd highly recommend B&H.

I will also toss in my vote for B&H, I have used them several times and always with no problems.

No question about it. B&H is one of the best!

As will I.
I have heard very few complains about B&H over the years. And you know how people like to complain!

They are good at pre and post sales support and their prices are basically the best among "reputable" stores. I've been told they are the single largest seller of photo and video equipment (not among chain stores, but for a single store.) So ya... a few people out there like them.

B&H is at the top of the best with years of solid performance.
Due to pricing on some particular items I've bought recently
from Adorama with good results.

I have ordered almost all of my camera equipment from them back to my first digital camera in 2000. The only thing I didn't order from them were rechargeable AAs cause I can get them cheaper locally.

If they are within 5% of anyone else I would use them.
