    Sorry for posting an offer from a disreputable e-tailer. Thanks to Shnitz for setting me straight about 42nd Street Photo.

    Resellerratings is a ridiculously stupid website that charges membership fees to boost your ratings. It is a huge racket. First of all, look at how many of those reviews are 1-poster, first visit reviews. Seem suspicious? Second, look at non-participating merchants like Amazon:
    Amazon.com Reviews - Amazon.com Ratings at ResellerRatings
    And Adorama:
    Adorama Reviews - adorama.com Ratings at ResellerRatings

    Amazon has a 6.3/10, are you kidding me? Amazon is arguably the most reputable online-purchasing website in the WORLD. And Adorama has a 7.1, while direct competitor B&H that has chosen to play their game (simply because so many consumers are uninformed, and they've calculated that they earn more from uninformed buyers or quick google shopping searches than they pay out in ransom to resellerratings) has a 9.74 rating.

    I know that the intent was to post a deal, but I learned something from this thread. I never knew that Reseller Ratings was a scam site, but I never used them anyway. Thanks for the info.
