I am seeking guidance from your wealth of knowledge. I have been looking around for a new camera system (specifically I am investigating moving from my Pentax K20d & lens to a Nikon d800E). As it is a relatively new body prices in bricks and mortar shops tend to be close to RRP (especially after some of the glowing reviews). When I look online there are some vendors who seem to be marketing the body alone at $800 below rrp with equivalent 'discounts' for lens and other accessories.
My questions are
1: which vendors are the real deal and trustworthy
2: which ones should be avoided
3: How 'grey' are the kit they sell
4: how valid are the 'australian warranties' offered for additional money?
I am aware of the adage 'if it seems way to good, it is probably dodgy'.
My gut says buy from a shop where I can 'test' the kit. My wallet (and wife) says look at all options first.
