    Has anyone ever used zwee.com?

    im prolly gunna buy a camera from here, but it seems like its really inexpensive for the camera

    eg.) nikon d90 for 455 (body only)

    i've heard mixed reviews, some say their orders never came, some orders take a while to get there, while others get there in 2-3 days.

    Just wondering if anyone has used it or what they've heard

    RUN AWAY!!!!!! Far,far,far,far away! $455 for a D90 body is below USA dealer's cost....the price is simply IMPOSSIBLE for them to fulfill. Unless of course you buy the "extras" that came in the box--like the neckstrap for $25. The battery for $31.50. A body cap for $19.99 The battery charger for $39.99. The cord for the battery charger for $14.95....see where this is going??? Oh, and a 3-year extended warranty for $149.99...next thing you know, you've got your " $455 " Nikon D90.

    It is a scam operation. Almost assuredly. Do not fall for this type of 'offer'.

    if it seems too good to be true............ unfortunately that's what people do. Anytime I hear mixed reviews, especially when there's people who never got the product... run!

    Ebay also isn't a bad site to look for photo stuff, just make sure the seller seems reliable.. I found my DSLR on there, just got it today actually. :)

    Some reputable photo-related retailers that I've ordered from, all highly recommended:

    Adorama.com
    BHphotovideo.com
    Amazon.com
    cameta.com

    Last time I ordered from Cameta they sat on my order for five days before sending it. It took 14 full days from the time I placed my order to the time the UPS man delivered it. Slightly annoying, but the shipping was free. So I wouldn't say they are "highly" recommended, but recommended nonetheless (it's not the only time I've ordered from them).

    That's why I don't usually do the free shipping. The retailers seem to go out of their way to make the free shipping painfully slow. Same thing with Amazon's super saver shipping (or what ever it's called).

    Stick to the reputable ones. They are usually very close in price.
