    Personally I would not order ANYTHING from Ritz Camera. I placed an order with them and two months later they took the money out of my account TWICE!!!!!!!!

    But hey....thats just me.

    I worked at the actual store chain of Kits camera (part of Ritz Camera) And anything that had to be ordered in could be anywhere from super quick to 10 weeks.

    Though i've heard of my own batch of bad customer service from bhphotovideo. But i think those guys will be the better of the two.

    I orderd my 100-400 L IS lens from Inkleys (Ritz) and it was there in 3 days... Also they have also been really cool about printing images. I have no complaints. Although I have never used bhphoto before.

    I've had great results using B&H. They've shipped all of my orders lightning fast, and customer service has been top-notch. It also feels more like it's geared toward photographers, know what I mean? Ritz just feels very chain-storish, if you catch my drift.

    BHphoto - only because of the good price on used equipment.

    But I'd check out eBay stores first - just as good.

    Ritz has a lot of things for A LOT more money than b&h. I never ordered online but I do get my prints their.

    All my camera gear has pretty much come from b&h. Always fast, great prices

    i've used bh for a few years now and they have always come through, ritz has always been a pain, not nearly as reliable and bh shipping is ridiculously fast.

    adorama.com is another store, who i would put behind bh but still ahead of ritz.

    My friend had a bad experience with Ritz online. I had a bad experience with Ritz in one of their stores. I couldn't write a check at Ritz - the system they use isn't able to verify the funds, so they use a credit service. If you don't have a strong history for writhing checks, your screwed. It actually worked out for the better, because I saved a boat load of money by going elsewhere.

    I've used B&H several times over the last couple of months and like some of the others have said B&H's shipping is really fast.

    I've never had bad experience with B&H, I buy everything from them. The one time I bought something from Ritz it was because B&H didn't have it. Ritz jacks their prices up, too. I've sent them prints once (Ritz) and never will again... the quality I got back stunk compared to where I usually take it (BWC).
