    Thanks! I figured it was a bit better, Americans are always in awe when they come in.

    Just a sidenote, we keep 1dsMKII and D2Xs in the back. Also have 2 MKIII's in the back right now:noes:

    to do a stocked inventory like that with all the upper price items, do you have to purchase them first? even for display models?

    I don't really deal with inventory, but from what I've heard I'd assume we pay for them to put them on the shelves. It's easier for us because we get 5%-10% off the cost that other stores get, because we're a Canon Professional Service dealer, so we get better deals than 99% of the shops out there.

    use to sling camera shit, but the pay sucks and the discount isn't that great :hs:

    working from home selling your photos is a much better deal

    That's pretty cool :cool:
    Kinda feel bad for flaming you in the 18-200 thread, lol, but still, it's good for what it's meant for :dunno:

    My pics would been cooler today because we started putting the d2xs on the shelf, and we have 2 mkiii's :bowdown:

    discounts are pretty :greddy:
    accessories are ok, but bodies/lenses/flashes don't have much markup at street value.

    I just told you, it will be skewed because our dollar is so strong, but our prices can't just change with the dollar. I get everything et 5% BELOW cost. Theres lots of stuff from B&H right now (high end stuff, like 400/2.8, 300/2.8) that is cheaper there than our cost is :rofl:
