    so you can't just type in psnov or psjan anymore, but as with everything there are work arounds.

    okay you didn't hear this from me but try

    PSJAN07XXX

    with XXX being a number, some have 4 digits after the PSJAN07 I think

    001-021 are bodies
    022- are lenses

    too lazy to keep going

    B&H is so overrated, their service and shipping policies suck balls lately.

    lately :o
    I've never had good service or cheep shipping, except when I was at Brooks (free 3day shipping for students ;) )
     
  6. Yeah the last thing I purchased took almost 2 weeks to get here, I was very upset considering I usually get my items 2-3 days after I purchase them online.... :hsugh:

    12 orders with them and they haven't gotten one right yet. The last time it nearly cost me a shoot, so I'll never use them again.

    they're unbeatable for selection. they pretty much will always have stuff in stock, and you can easily research what you need.

    They wouldn't ship my 135L when I was away at school unless I changed the address on my credit card. Mind you I put the right billing address and to ship to a different address, and they wouldn't do it.

    They're codes often give a better price than other stores, but I have no personal attachment as many seem to.

    Granted, the selection is fantastic, but if they can't get it to my door in time for a shoot, they may as well be Ritz camera. :hs: Going in there is an adventure too, the place is fucking nuts.

    Fortunately, I live 15 minutes away from Unique Photo. Not quite as wide a selection, but they are 1000x better to deal with.

    i just ordered my dSLR and other items from B&H, and it took them 5 business days just to get my order "shipped" from them, then another 2 days for it to come. everything i ordered was common and in-stock.
