Time to go back to B&H, or did you get a great price through Amazon?

I don’t know about “great” but after accounting for all discounts, taxes and credit card rewards they were about 4% cheaper through Amazon. Given the hassle that was penny wise and pound foolish...

Living in Washington State here in the USA I appreciate that B&H will pay for the tax for me also!

I don’t typically purchase camera gear through Amazon and prefer to spread my purchases among dedicated photo stores including some smaller ones. Occasionally Amazon does have odd pricing anomalies - my Z7+24-70/4 purchase a year ago was a clear pricing error of many hundred dollars - which I’ll happily take from Mr. Bezos’ pocket. Based on this experience and similar reports from others getting lenses in envelopes I’m going to need a pretty large price difference before considering it worth it again.

The first digital image was made in the late '60's for NASA, as a way to record images of Mars. Each "square" was represented by three numbers, corresponding to the red, green, and blue hue on a scale of 0 to 255. This eliminated the need to ship film back to Earth.
