Dear Photonet friends: My brother recently sent me this message. Could you provide any suggestions and comments about the no-name sites he mentions? Thanks, Joseph "Need your advise/opinion on where to purchase the new 5D Mark ll. I've scoured the usual internet sites and it seems that the body with a 24-105mm L lens retails for about $3,500. B&H is probably the best standard out there, with other reputable sites offering similar pricing. I did notice a few no-name sites are offering the body for about $1,000 less, which lowers the kit price to about $2,500...but these bodies appear to be imports and don't recognize the US warranty. The lens appears to be genuine but is packaged in a "white box" which makes me wonder if it is a new lens. After calling around it seems these imports may not have english firmware as the default although I am being told the conversion to english is one of the options on the main menu of the camera. I'm a little suspicious if this is true but was wondering what you know. I'm inclined to give B&H my business (once again) but want to pause and complete my research before doing so. What's a smart move?"
