+1 on Pro Photo Supply in Portland. Whenever I'm after something that's hard to get, they always find it for me first. And the people who work there actually know what they're talking about.

Glazers in Seattle is also great, but there are one or two guys there who can be pretty arrogant. The other day, I was looking at the Sony A7 and asked the salesperson how to set the focus point manually. He made the change, but the focus point was quite large, and I asked him if there was a way to have a smaller focus point. He said no, there wasn't. So I poked around through the menus a bit and found the "pinpoint af" option. I showed him and he said "Yes, I know about that." "But you just told me that there was no way to make the focus point smaller", I said. His replied "I told you that there was no way to make the focus point smaller in that other mode." WTF? What a jackass.
