Default Any opinions on Abes of Maine

They seem to have the best prices and beating all the retailers by $50-$100. Are they legit or authorized dealers for there cameras ?...The have a dslr that's $95 less then everywhere else and was wondering if anyone has had any experinces in dealing with this retailer.

I wouldn't have bought from them years ago, and I have no personal experience with them. They are now a big company, and have high ratings. Apparently they can now afford to be honest. Indeed they have better ratings then most places.

In situations like this you can check with such sites as Resellers.com.

Abe's of Maine - abesofmaine.com - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings

Thanks Dave for the link, but I don't think they're Sony authorized dealers (which is the brand I'm looking at)...

First of all, Abe's has not been located in Maine for a long time.

Abe's is a classic Brooklyn camera business. Their old (1986 to 2007) location in Brooklyn:

Which, according to their website was a " reliable and reputable establishment"

Their new, slick looking, location in New Jersey:

Also watch their aliases:
