Default I have decided to buy a Nikon 5400, but where? Electric Sam?

After reading everything I could about Digital Cameras I have decided on the Nikon 5400, mainly because of 28mm wide angle and name. Now how do I sort out all of the sellers and feel confident in who I am dealing with. I have read some of the reviews of venders, but all of them seem to have problems at times. I have been pretty impressed with Electric Sam and ButerFly Photo. Any experience or other suggestions.

Thanks Autumn :?:

I have used this site many times and always been very happy:

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...2&searchdepa=0

$592 with free shipping.

Electric Sams isnít the cheapest if you consider shipping. The first on the list I have dealt with is MWave and they are very good Ė I bought a computer from them and their support was excellent. I have it sorted by total price: http://www1.dealtime.com/xPC-Nikon_C..._5400~S-6~PG-1

You might crosscheck the ratings here: http://www.resellerratings.com/

Thanks for you help. I did go to the mwave.com but I am concerned that they do not state that it is a US Nikon Warranty and they also do not list what exactly comes with the camera like many of the other sites.

Thanks Phil

I am a brand new participant in this Forum. I have looked at newegg but they are a little more expensive but I know I should'nt just look at price. They are still $100 less than I would have to pay at our local camera store. Thanks.

Newegg is a great place. I've bought many many items from them without a single problem. They are also very highly rated at www.resellerratings.com

You will want to buy at least a 256mb CF card when you purchase the camera. Price the card with the camera from the list Slipe provided and add shipping. I would consider buying from any vendor who has a least 200 reviews and a rating of 4 or more. Also verify their rating at http://www.resellerratings.com/ . Then you can make the choice of vendors. I like newegg because they do not over charge for the additional accessories and their overall pricing may be the best
