I'm ready to order my dsc-r1. I know that most of the New York dealers are sleazy. But Butterfly and Nice Electronics get middling reviews. Any suggestions? Their prices seem to be the best, all things considered.

Wolf, do not do this.
Try DELL or PROVANTAGE.com or you can find something else

It seems to me all these expresscameras, butterflys and all other nice electronics are the same scam and shame place.
For more information research these online sellers in terms of their reputation ( not the 'best deal')
Try for instance http://www.dpreview.com/ sony forum.

Well, I've found another opinion opinion (from this blog - page 2)

I have been looking on different sites for prices on the R1. I see them listed from $750 and up.The problem is when I read the reviews on most of these companies the reviews say that these companies call you back before sending the order out and do the high pressure sell trying to get you to purchase grossly overpriced extras such as memory sticks etc. When you refuse to purchase the extras you are notified a few days later that mysteriouslythe camera is out of stock and on back order. In other words if you dont let them scam you with their cheap tripods, lousy camera bags etc. you wont get a camera. I have seen a question similar to this one before and whoever replied sent them a link to what they said was a legit service. When I checked the company out they were one of the worst rated. The price at the 1 and only Sony storewhere I live is $1300 Canadian. Am I best to try to talk them down in price or is there a legit online store?
