Go to B&H and have all of the fruit chew candies you can eat... otherwise order on line and AVOID the taxes! Our bloated government needs to go on a diet! (OK, no more political content).  You're more likely to get a deal with a small local retailer, if they had what you want. Been to Adorama and they're nice folks, same with B&H, but unless you talk to the owner, good luck with a deal.  And keep in mind, your 700 bucks is a big deal to you and me, but in the larger scheme, it's not. When I was hanging out in B&H a week ago for an afternoon, I was shocked how many folks walked in and blew several thousands of dollars on stuff they only lightly researched (from my overheard conversations)... OH WELL.
