Where do we get deals on SLRs on DPReview?
Hi..there are lots of websites out there which give details of deals on electronics including cameras. Do we have such thing on SLRs on DP review website?.

I am planning to get a Pentax 10D and want to know the best deal in the market. Best I have read so far comes to around 575 dollars post 100 dollar rebate..

This is a photographic website, not a price comparison website. The only "deals" that you will see are from affliliated suppliers and can be found on the various camera specification pages - look under Camera Database.Chris R..

Do consider visiting your local camera store and buying from them, even if it costs you a few dollars/rupees/bhat/cowrie shells more than online. You will be helping your local community's employment situation, as well as getting you a local contact for free information and help when the wheels fall off your brand-new toy. Nothing more frustrating than needing to have your camera fixed under warranty and having to send it away to some unknown, faceless entity to pronounce judgement on it. Local gives you the chance to speak to a real live human being - possibly a brain-dead one, true, but at least there in the flesh..

Do consider it.Rob.

Everyone, everywhere, has to do everything for a first time. There is no shame in failure, only in failure to try...

Beware, the cheapest deal is sometimes no more than a scam - especially on photographic equipment. "Ratings" of a particular store are often fabricated - even on reputable consumer feedback sites as the scammers often pay people for good reviews. You may want to inquire here as to the reputation of a particular seller before you buy.http://jcharding.zenfolio.com/..

That sounds nice, but not every area has a local camera store that comes even close to competing with B&H or Adorama, or even Amazon. I've no desire to drive 40 minutes or longer to pay more - assuming a local shop has what I want. So, well over an hour of my time higher cost + local taxes + fuel cost + bridge toll vs. a few minutes online + no tax + free shipping in some cases - it's a no brainer..

Both points of view have merit. I have done both and with dslrs I prefer the in person method. I can get a feel of how the camera handles. Shoot a few images to confirm IQ. I can check out accessories..

You can save yourself a lot of hassle and buyers remorse by going in person..
