    If you did a Google search or a search on this forum you would find plenty of discussions about these places. They do bait and switch and aren't reputable

    Stay away! Their prices seem great and convincing, but they will frequently call you after you have placed your order and notify you that the priced you paid is for the grey market version, and that you can pay "X" amount more for the US version. Spend a little extra and buy from Adorama or BH photo, or buy used on somewhere like here or Fredmiranda

    42nd street is not reputable in my opinion. They seem to use tactics that take advantage of newbies and rip them off. Also I would not trust any positive reviews about them because I suspect it is 42nd Street themselves who put them up. They do not seem to have equipment at the prices they claim on line. They will sell you a gray market camera with no battery and try to upsell you on the battery along with useless accessories and warranties. Here is how you know that I am right about this. Try buying one of their products. Without fail you will receive a call from one of these scumbags when you click buy. The sale is never smooth and straightforward. Why would anyone need to call you? Just send the stuff at the price that was advertised. I don't need to talk to anyone. That is why I buy things online! They call you and try to upsell you. If you are adamant and refuse they will hold your money hostage until you relent. In the end you end up paying more for a gray market camera than you would if you bought directly from a Nikon USA approved seller. My advice to you is: Resist the temptation to save money. This really is one of those too good to be true examples. Don't be a dunce and think you are smart by ignoring all the people on here warning you.

    B&H now charges sales tax to all states. Go for the other two.
