I'm buying a57 from amazon right now, (costs618$). but I just found this link

should i purchase from that site? will this be some risk? If anyone has experience with that site please answer

Please trust that I have felt the allure of saving a few $$ and I understand your temptation, but I strongly suggest you keep your credit card far, far away from that type of company. At the very best, you will only save $55 (and yes, I understand every penny counts) but it could cost you so much more than that in time, trouble and actual money. Try calling PriomTronix on the phone and asking about their return policy and see what kind of high pressure run-around you get.

Everybody else here seems to feel OK with Amazon, but I'd rather spend my money at Adorama or B&H. Those two companies are the gold standard of mail order.
