Best and safest place to buy?? Store, Online??

I am getting ready to purchase a Nikkon d50 and have done lots of searching for the best deal. It looks like there are quite a few online stores that are offering nice packages for a good price, but I'd like to know if anyone has experienced problems with them. Unfortunately, my local camera stores seem to be overpriced by about $200.

Is there anyone who could recommend a good online store that is reputable??

resellerratings.com to check the ratings of stores.

places like royalcameras.com expresscamera.com etc are places you probally seen on the list and are 100% scams.

One example, the RR link of royal : http://www.resellerratings.com/seller1895.html

If you have any doubts about a site, google the website in quotes and you will usually get some good info about the site... I almost bought a Canon once and after i googled it found out the site was a scam.... My favorites:
FotoConnection.com
BHFoto.com
TigerDirect.com

Wow - what a timely post. I'm in the process of researching a new camera purchase and had saved the expresscamera website as the probable place to buy once I decided which camera I wanted.

I owe you all a great big "Thank you!"
