I see that Butterfly has it for $484 with shipping. I have bought from Butterfly before and never had an issue. I too will order from B&H if the price is competitive. Now, I always order on-line rather than by phone so I've never had a hard sell on accessories from anyone. I also will mention that any of these places makes money on accessories and 'kits' so I stay away from them and buy individual items.

Good luck!

Buydig and Beach Camera had it for that price last week, but are now 499. They are very reputable. I'm not sure on Butterfly. If you decide to order from them let me know how you make out. I plan to buy soon.

I just looked up Butterfly and it is no good for me since I am in NY and subject to tax.

There is also a company called Wisetronics that has it 409 and with tax and shipping for 460, but I think it is one of those unscrupulous places that scams people by just selling them the camera and charges extra for factory accessories. I get a kick out of places like that want hundreds of dollars for an SD card.

I will stick with B&H and Ritz. I rather not have any problems or sales calls.

Anytime you're planning to buy on the internet based on price, I heartily recommend a trip here FIRST!

http://www.resellerratings.com

Down the page, you'll find a search form entry to insert the name of the storefront.

Anything less than an 8 rating should be cautiously considered...although I think I see traces of competitors registering and badmouthing their rivals.
