    The two sponsors at the top right of this page are located in NYC and are both highly recommended.

    The last time I went to Adorama it was closed. :grumpy: :(

    Watch the hours for these places. When Adorama was closed I was dejectedly walking away when I saw a 30 foot sign on another building saying '17th St. Photo This Way' (only about a block away). :D :thumbup:

    I went in and it doesn't have much of a store but I ended up saving $90 on the 2 lenses I bought. Got a good deal on a Hoya Circ-pol too. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    So check them out also. Sometimes they are less and sometimes more. Doesn't compare to the B&H experience though.

    Be aware of the 8.75% NYC sales tax.

    I've heard that Adorama is closed on all Jewish Holidays.

    I believe you are correct.....I tried to buy something online during their holidays and they were closed, but someone on standby did take the order.

    Yeah, I found that out two weeks ago when I was there. First time I ever go and there closed on Saturday, no big deal, so I go on the Sunday a few weeks later, im like what day is today why do they look closed??? And sure enough it was a Jewish holiday. Its all good, hopefully this weekend is nothing going on, I really want my battery grip!!
