Default I know what I'm getting - where from?

Ok, so I have settled on the Pentax K-x with the 18-55 and 55-300 lenses.
I have found the best prices at four websites (between $625-$629, free shipping).
But, where to buy from? Please help me choose between:
Amazon.com
B&H Photo
CentralDigital.com
CameraKings.com

(or, if you know where I can get it cheaper, let me know!)
thanks!

vinnybear-

B & H has a 15 day return policy with no hassle and no charge. Amazon has a 30 day return policy with no hassle and no charge. I really would forget the other two. Certainly look up their rating at www.resellerratings.com. You will be surprised by what you find.

The top 2 on your list would be my choices. They are very good companies to deal with.

I would check the seller rating if you are considering the other 2 before going with either one.

I presume you mean Resellerratings.com. Excellent resource.

Default thanks guys

i ordered mine Sunday from BH, just regular delivery though - supposed to be here Thursday! Although when I check the UPS tracking, it says that they have only received billing information, not that it is in transit or anything, and is supposed to be here in 2 days, sent UPS Ground, or as the order confirmation said, 3-Day Delivery. so... we'll see

Our shipping department assigns each package's tracking number when the shipping label is affixed. The package is then transferred to a special UPS holding area in our loading dock. Legally the package is theirs from that point. Once the UPS driver arrives and scans each package's bar code, the information UPS has should change from their pending note to acknowledgment they have the package in their possession.
