You can attach filters, macro lens or telephoto lens to the 5700 via an adapter tube.

They have a good rating on both bizrate.com and resellerratings.com

Again, use these two tools, and read the feedback from customers who have bought from vendors when choosing one.

bizrate.com rating for newegg.com:
http://shop.bizrate.com/ratings_guid...xpml?mid=28697

resellerratings.com rating or newegg.com:
http://www.resellerratings.com/seller2121.html

They have a 15% restocking fee on returns. Here are their policies:
http://www.newegg.com/app/warranty.asp

However, if you look at the Coolpix 5700, there is a note on their site that it is NOT REFUNDABLE -- EXACT EXCHANGE ONLY. Scroll down on this search page on their web site:

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...coolpix%2C5700

You may want to check into their policies on other camera models, too (if you decided on the Fuji or Sony instead). Anyway, it looks like they're slightly higher than the other guys like buydig.com anyway (except that they have FedEx Saver Shipping included in the price).

Just want to say not all in New York are bad...I keep hearing the best things about B&H Photo. As already stated here, just check the ResellerRatings.com and Bizrate sites first.

Here's the full New York story if you want to read about it:

Mike is right. B&H is a reputable dealer. I mentioned them earlier, but it may have gotten lost in all of my rhetoric about how the scam artists work (most are based in Brooklyn, but that doesn't mean all NY vendors are bad). I probably should have pointed out that these same "brick and morter" guys also do online or "over the phone" orders.

Customer feedback and ratings on resellerratings and bizrate are your best guide (also listening to the feedback of forum members here, to get their experiences working with various dealers).

I recently purchased a Nikon 5700 from www.buydig.com. They are a new york firm and it was a pleasure to do business with them.

I bought my Nikon 5700 about a year ago from DBUYS.com and the camera was a US model. I have yet had any problems with the camera and love my Nikon. DBUYS also has a pretty competitive price on the 5700.

The A1 is a very nice camera with CCD stablization which performs similar to Image stablization. Read Steve's reviews.
