I get suspicious of the lowest price - I want to pay more! I don't want
to work with lowest of the low! Hissing vermin!
I've done OK with Adorama I got my first M6 there 9 years ago. Do they
charge a lot more than Smile and those guys if so they're work it. B&H
is another step up. Keeble and Suchak a step up from there. I like them all.
I've done the most business with CameraWorld often over the counter but
they've gone completely down the proverbial tubes. They were bought out
this year.
