    Hello everyone,
    I have always ordered with BH and they will not work with me on my current issue so I have to go with Adorama. I wanted to know if Adorama is a reputable company like BH?

    Thanks,

    Yes, completely. They would not be listed here as a vendor if they were not reputable.

    I've never ordered from them, but I would certainly recommend them based on all that I've heard about them.

    I recently purchased a remote shutter release for my camera. Very quick shipment. I was highly satisfied.

    Great place, great customer service I've physically been to the store. You can trust them.

    Adorama did me good on my order... just check out on their shipping costs before paying. A couple of times, they wanted to charged me hellacious shipping costs for simple articles.

    Awesome that was the fastest response yet! I now notice the Adorama icon up in the corner. I have always shopped at BH and I can save quite a bit of money. I know trust Sdorama and I just placed my order. Thanks for all the help. I actually got free shipping so who knows how long it will take. One thing I have noticed after talking with them a few times is that they work of commisoin and they are very pushy and try to upsell. I only buy video and photography stuff from reputable companies because I don't want that gray market stuff or the fly by night dealers who are gone when your lens breaks. Thanks again.

    Just out of curiosity, what issue are you having with B&H?

    They are my preferred place to shop for camera & stuff.

    Adorama and B&H are both top notch

    Where did you pick up your Nikkor 85mm F/1.4?

    Yes... Adorama is reputable. A little too business/retail for my tastes (kinda feels like a car dealership) but definitely trust worthy. The experience is quite different from the low volume boutiques...
