Re: B&H is more trustworthy

B&H is an excellent source. When they say expected arrival date it is not the same as when it says in stock.

If a camera is popular enough they will ship the camera and not change expected date status. It will change to backordered. Your getting in line to buy a new camera. Same thing with lenses.

As far as Amazon goes, I would never buy a camera from them. Most of the time you will end up buying rented camera bodies, lenses bags from Amazon. They have no standards when it comes to a return. Amazon can not tell if someone shot lots of video or thousands of photos.

B&H return policy is very clear about at what point they will not take a "new" camera back as new.

I completely agree. I bought a canon pixma pro 100 from amazon and someone had already redeemed its UPC code for the $300 mail in rebate!  I was able to get it sorted out, but it was really frustrating.  Many people buy things on amazon then simply return it then it gets resold as new still.
