I am not happy with bricks and mortar stores in photography. It used to be fun buying from them e.g. in the 1980s and 1990s. Not now. Not at all. The game changer is online, and every street level store will tell you how true that is, to whoever's detriment/benefit. Do the wise thing and scout through the APUG classies. Wise up and go walkabouts in eBay. With the exception of my EOS1N and pinhole camera, scant little of my equipment has been bought in shops: all from eBay since 2001-2003, much of it ex-USA for far, far less than what could at any stretch of possibility be found locally, at a respectable price, and in a timely manner.
