    I'm looking into buying a Nikon d40, d60 or d90 + kit lens and I'm not sure how to distinguish skeevy sites from decent ones.

    I know that Adorama.com is trustworthy, so I've mostly stuck to buying from there. Other suggestions are idyllic; a place that can be trusted to offer inexpensive, no BS equipment.

    thanks!

    B&H and Adorama are my two go to sites. I've bought thousands of dollars worth of equipment and its all been good. Return policy is great. MPEX is great for lighting equipment, and probably everything else, but I just buy my lighting stuff from them.

    Hope this helps,

    Steve

    Cametta Camera is a lot like Adorama.

    Amazon has a lot of referrel to both Cametta, J&R, and Adorama

    They are also huge stores :)
    Look into buydig.com, bought my camera there and very happy with it. Cheaper then B&H, free S&H - :)

    B&H, KEH, Adorama - all the way. You can call B&H, describe what you need and they'll get you exactly the right thing.

    ^ that.

    Adorama, B&H, MPEX, etc...

    There's a ton of places, but you can bet unless there's some kind of one off promotion that you get lucky enough to find, Adorama & B&H will probably have the about the lowest prices you can find on camera gear. If you find a new camera for a lot less than anything those two are showing, it's probably a scam.
