Just curious where everyone recommends as a good, honest online camera seller?

I've done extremely well at Adorama (http://www.adorama.com/), so I highly recommend 'em. B&H has a good rep & I've liked them, but they've had more computer glitches (to be fair, I've only ordered from them once - I guess that makes it a 100% match, tho) (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/). Midwest Photo Exchange (http://www.mpex.com/) has a good rep, too.

Most folks pretty much stick to those three (and a few others - Abe Photo/Video on the east coast, e.g.). There are a few out there that are mighty shady...

I've dealt with buydig.com and have found them to be extremely reliable and trustworthy. They and B&H get 90% of my business.

You can, and should, look up any potential online vendor at:

I usually check http://www.bhphotovideo.com and http://www.buydig.com for most items. I also check http://www.keh.com for both new and used gear. For both new and factory refurbished gear, try http://www.cameta.com (and also see their Ebay store at http://stores.ebay.com/Cameta-Camera

I've purchased multiple lenses from Cameta Auctions on Ebay (including my Minolta 28mm f/2 AF lens, Minolta 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 AF lens, and Vivitar Series 1 70-200mm f/2.8-4 APO Macro AF lens. A number of our forum members also purchased refurbished Nikon gear from them with no issues (Cameta sells both new and factory reconditioned equipment), and they sell Nikon USA gear, not gray market gear like many Ebay vendors.

For memory cards, card readers, and computer related accessories, I tend to go with http://www.newegg.com more often than most other vendors.
