If you were trying to say that BH is a bunch of crooks, why don't you just come out and say it. Be up front, and stop trolling.

I believe he's referring to when there use to be a bunch of online retailers that were ripping people off that all had addresses in Brooklyn.

Here's an example from the past: Scamers in Brooklyn, NY

Maybe, but if you have not been to NYC in a while, all the crooks are in the bronx and yonkers now. Brooklyn has gotten pricey.

OK guys. Let's not start with personal attacks (there's enough of that in this thread already). ;-)

B&H has a good reputation. So, I'm still inclined to think this is all a misunderstanding on how the deal is supposed to work (or a mistake in the pricing somewhere). We'll see what else Henry has to say about it if he stops back in.

You will also have to understand that Amazon has even more buying power then BH, so their price for the items are different form Amazon from canon. It is hard for many big retail to match amazon of prices, even if they have a price match policy, or you will see that in the policy it has clauses that the price has to be from a brick and motar retailer. So each has different price models for the item. Also you can not expect any retail to match a price from another if it is out of stock.
