My Gosh that must be nice... and in this photographer's Utopia you describe... tell me, Do they force a camera store to charge hundreds more in VAT than online retailers?

Every shop I've been into in the DFW area acts like they are doing me a favor for having a store.  This and the fact that they are automatically 8.25% higher off the bat makes the internet stores a no brainer.  I've never had a problem with B&H and Adorama.  Don't care if something has been opened as long as it works as it should and has full warranty.  I've returned several items over the years and haven't abused a return policy even though some do.
