    Amazon is cheaper, but I also like the fact of seeing it before buying it, and the warranty of BestBuy is very good.

    I have ordered from amazon, but not sure if I should order a camera from them. What would you recommend me?


    EDIT: What else would you recommend me to buy? An extra battery?

    Depends where you are but I would recommend a reputable specialist camera store like B&H in New York or Henry's in Toronto Canada.

    I'm not from the USA, I'm from Mexico. So going to New York only for a camera isn't a good option.:)

    But I have a house in the USA, so I could order online and have it shipped there.

    You can order from B&H online and have it shipped to your house in the US ;)

    Best Buy great warranty!

    mmmmmmmira.. los precios de BH son mas baras.. tambien esta.. Adorama.. etc.. esos lugares osn mas PRO, pero de un tiempo para aca la harantia en BestBuy esta bastante buena, asi que yo te recomendaria que compre alli.. cualquier cosa que le pase.. sera menos rollo que te den otra.. a un camarada le chafeo un lente q compro.. y con la garantia le dieron uno nuevoo.. asi que checa bien cual puede ser tu mejor opcion!

    Harsh but I agree...I like to be able to read all the replies in a thread if I can read the 1st post :-D.

    Now then: Je pense que....

    Just kidding.

    I would say that between the two go with Amazon, better customer service and just overall better. Best Buy is the devil. Add'ly if you can afford to, I'd buy from your local store. Lastly, if you live primarily in Mexico wouldn't it make sense to buy a Mexican cam, cuz otherwise if you have any warranty issues you'll have to mail it in in the US and have repairs etc sent to your US address. But this is only a concern if you don't go to your US address often. Good luck!

    I highly recommend B&H. They are great people and always have lower prices than Best Buy.

    I'm not sure on the B&H return policy (so maybe you should look into it), but you can purchase from Amazon and know that they have a 30 day return policy. That way you get the good price and on the off chance you're unhappy, you can use the policy.
