I can't say enough about the service I have gotten from Berger Bros. camera in N.Y. I got a call personally from Brad Berger himself tonight letting me know that he will be shipping my D700 body on Friday!!!! Now I have to wait for UPS to get it here.
If you need a reputable place to order camera equipment, give Berger Bros a try. I am always impressed.
I think he has talked me into including a SB-900 with the body as well.
I placed my order on July 1 at about 10:30 with a deposit and I got no such call. I think I need to call them. I certainly should be in the first batch. I hope this doesn't turn into strike two for me with this dealer. I will post when I get to the bottom of this.
I spoke with BB twice, but not Brad or Lisa, and I will also get mine in the first batch. I was put on hold to look for my order, so I think I was nearly skipped, but can't be sure. They also tried to push a SB-900 but I don't need a strobe at the moment.
I was also told that it isn't their usual practice to call before the gear is in hand, but I will take that with a grain of salt.
All's well that ends well. At least I will have the gear come Monday. It's just too bad UPS doesn't deliver on Saturday.
