    I'm hanging out in Miami and see a Ritz Camera, decided to walk in and see if they had anything that I might pick up for a wedding I'm going to on Saturday The guy asks if I need help I ask where their Canon section is and the guy says they don't carry Canon products. What's up with that? Where do you guys go to check out product in person before you go home to order online? :p

    Ritz is owned by the Ritz Family. They bought it under another family company name (RCI). The Nikon thing is a rumor and its not the first time its come out.

    Ritz owed Nikon a huge chunk of money when it went down last year. That's probably why you see so much of it there.

    Talked to one of their sales people couple of months ago, they said that it was a corporate push to only sell Nikon. That explains that, force customers to buy one brand and you'll get rid of inventory a bit quicker...

    No Canon because when they declared bankruptcy last year, they stuck Canon with a HUGE load of debt. Canon is not inclined to do them any favors. Nikon took the opportunity to wipe their debt load clean, so Nikon does not actually own Ritz, but they have Ritz in their pocket.

    I got the same sort of line when calling around for a new body last week. They just don't get Canon products very often.
