As with B&H I have never had a problem, ever. Sure packages have arrived late, but they are not in the delivery business. As for Amazon, I have found the quickest delivery, the both sell...and a "part" of delivery, but mostly Amazon has warehouses closer to me than the distance of B&H. The best point here is what quality are you receiving from any other than B&H. Do you believe Amazon has qualified people standing behind a product coming from who knows where? Most Amazon products I see from Amazon are "new" but most likely some have been around. Now, I have purchased from amazon and had good results. However, I have received product sub standard. With every business, problems exist. That's normal, they are run by humans. Now with adorama, they allow a second party which works within their website ignore your order from adorama and order outside which would be Amazon and send you cheaper product from there to gain profit. Who knows what quality you are recieving.
