    Alright i am going to get the 40D i think.. I am new to SLR, but i really like this model. Now on the main site it states its $1,400. I have found package deals off of other various websites having the price around $600-900...

    Do you think those warehouse like places selling cameras and other accessories is/are shady or fake?

    I would do your homework on the reseller and avoid them like the plague. In a quick google search I found nothing but bad news about them. Also, think about it, why would they sell cameras that much cheaper than everyone else?

    What makes buying my camera at resellerratings.com better/safer than getting it from bestpricecameras.com or other sites like this??

    Step back a minute here - resellerratings.com is a place to find out if where you buy your camera is a good, reliable store or not. You don't buy from resellerratings.com. So the real question is why is it safer/better to buy from someone like B & H, or Adorama, or any other store than buying from bestpricecameras.com. To be honest, anyone that is selling a camera like the 40 D or Nikon D300 for such a significantly lower price makes me shy away.

    I understand exactly what your saying now... Is that reseller pretty trustworthy??

    Also where would you go if you went on the net to get a cheaper than retail price?

    If it sounds too good to be true it IS.

    Some of these places, a third less than anyone else you have to wonder. First, if they can't "upsell" you for a thousand dollars more, they won't ship a product for months, if ever. It'll be "Back-ordered".

    How do I know? Not personal experience. Just so many sad stories on many forums. B&H , Adorama, Amazon, a few others, the best LEGITIMATE prices, service, get what you paid for and get it fast.

    My favorites, and the ones I have spent WAY too much money at are Amazon and B&H. They treat you HONESTLY and right.

    I agree. Buy from a reputable source.

    Oh, and BTW, the Canon EOS 40D is a phenomenal camera!
