They are a new site.  They have a good reseller-ratings report, but wonder how easily that can be fooled.  Didn't turn up any reports of them being a scam, though.  I'd probably give them a little more time before fully trusting that everything is on the up-and-up.

i saw their reseller rating. everyone gave it 5/5. each "reviewer" had only 1 review each - which is the review they gave to digitalmonster. the reviews seems fishy to me...

Indeed, looks like a scam. Something I always check for is legitimate company details on the "contact us" page (preferably a street address that can be viewed via Google StreetView). These guys don't even give a clue as to what part of the US (or indeed world) they're from. There's not even an email address, just a webform. In addition their Return Policy page says SLR cameras are non-returnable.

Remember, if it's too good to be true...
