Could you tell me the best place to purchase on-line? My hubby is buying me a Nikkor lens for our 25th Anniversary! Yea! We have normally purchased everything at our local Wolf camera store, but the lens is $749.99 there. I have seen it much cheaper on-line. If you can direct me to the trusted site, that would be great! I am sooo excited to play with the new lens...
I would use either Adorama or B&H. I have ordered a lot of stuff from B&H and have been very happy with them.
Someone I know fell for the "great package deal" that was supposed to be better than the more reliable places like the ones I mentioned. They were buying their first Canon DSLR. They did not get a USA version. Instead it was a grey market version and sometimes those do not come with a warranty. Sometimes they take the items out of the box and try to force you to pay extra for those things that should have come with the camera in the first place - strap, battery, software, manual, flash card, you name it. Sometimes they will substitute the Canon kit lens for lower quality 3rd party lenses hoping you won't know the difference.
Another thing is that Canon only gives rebates to people who purchase from an authorized dealer.
Just some things to think about.

If you're ever in New York City, check it out. It's on 9th Ave at 34st. They're closed Saturdays. The people that run the store are Orthodox Jews. Even their website won't take orders from sundown Friday night to sundown Saturday night. I guess their webserver is Orthodox too.
it's going to be 100 degrees in the city tomorrow, so be glad you're not here! Next time you come down, LMK. I'll take you to my favorite restaurant in Chinatown called Wo Hop on Mott Street. It opened in 1938. My father took me there for the first time in 1961! Every time I go there, I can still see my father eating lobster cantonese. He passed back in 1984.
Bring your camera. Great stuff to photograph in Chinatown. If it's summer time, bring a clothes pin for your nose!!
