You shouldn't be afraid to deal with the reputable NY discounters. They aren't all sharks; just most of them.

B&H is impecable, and I have dealt with them for years. (there are others, I understand) But you won't get the 5700 for $620 from a reputable dealer. I just bought one from IBuy for $958, which is an incredible price. While I don't normally deal with anyone but B&H anymore, I got to know the guy at IBuy when I took a chance on an E-20 a while back. I didn't like the power consumption of the microdrive he sold me, and he took it back even though I had used it, no problem. I figured I owed him some allegience.

hey zeddman....I called Abe's of Maine and there's no way they sell the 5700 for $875. They say they've never sold it for that. In fact they said that is their cost. What's up with that? Are you an employee of their's trying to rustle up business?

If the price is too good to be true, it ain't true, it's total bs. As this original post said, you can buy a Nikon coolpix 5700 for $620. Yes, you can, call them and you will find down, they will tell you that is the price for the camera and you can't use the camera without the accessories, they will try to get you to buy the what so call "camera kit" (inc batt, charger, trap, lens cap, manual, memory device, software etc...and all these should incl at the first place) and with that, you will not believe the total price is going to be, in addition to that, they will also tell you if you want the USA warranty, it will cost extra...end of story...

Just got off the phone with Nikon USA and here's what they said. In order for a Nikon camera to be covered by the USA warranty it MUST be sold by an authorized Nikon dealer. A list of ALL Nikon USA dealers can be found at their site...nikonusa.com
