    HELP I DONT WANT TO GET RIPPED

    is this site legit? The prices make it seem fake or something. heres a comparison of a Nikon D40x on Amazon and on this site, Soniccameras.com.

    Amazon-
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O19JF2/sr=8-1/qid=1220751273/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1220751273&sr=8-1


    Sonic Cameras-
    http://soniccameras.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=64_760_1243&products_id=4445

    Please help me out! I cant find anything wrong with the cameras like them being refurbished or anything but i need other opinions.

    A quick googling of "sonic cameras review" will answer your question.

    I would not buy from them.

    I realize this is the Internet Age - but it still holds true that if something seems to good to be true, it invariably is.

    Of course, as P. T. Barnum (supposedly) once said... There's a sucker born every minute.

    Buyer beware, this site looks worse than Ebay/Craigslist

    Nice Kit - Eos 1DS MkIII and 17-85 EF-s lens for $4500 - so a camera for about half the price and a lens that doesn't fit.

    Also, very nice of them to sell you a lens you can't use with your camera. :rolleyes:

    Resellerratings.com is one of the most valuable resources on the internet

    I like the graphic on the right hand side of the web site that says "Why Sonic Cameras?" and then lists "Rated #1 in Customer Service"
