    Anyone have experience purchasing from Abes of Maine?

    • Kynikos

      Bought a Sigma lens from them two years ago. No problems. Clerk called immediately to inform me there’d be two days’ delay because of my international credit card. I appreciated the courtesy call. Start-to-finish the lens was at my Canadian doorstep in just under two weeks.

    • rich

      they are fine. I think they are accredited business on BBB. I think I got my first dslr the d40 there.

        • Neopulse

          Thanks for posting this. Heard a lot about bait and switch places on forums that close up shop and reopen under a different with frequency to avoid legal repercussions. A lot of bad stories….

    • Rodolfo Arechiga

      That price reflects grey market prices. I checked it out and one D610 clearly says USA for $1996 the non USA says $1799.99

    • dr

      A few years back, I bought a lens from them. It was supposed to be new, but it clearly had been opened – and it was defective. I sent it back for a replacement. They sent me back the same exact copy I had returned. I got my money back, and bought the lens elsewhere.

    • zoetmb

      Many years ago, when they had a store in Brooklyn, I walked in to buy an expensive VHS machine and they refused to give me the price they advertised in the magazines. We had a big fight and I threatened to call the Attorney General’s office. In the end, I don’t remember if I wound up buying it from them at the advertised price or whether I went elsewhere. Another time, they tried to pull the “battery not included” crap. I wouldn’t buy anything from them under any circumstances. Stick with B&H, Adorama, J&R, etc – all reputable dealers.

  • Moe

    Abes of Maine has a lot of negative reviews. They appear to be a bait-and-switch company.

  • Mandrake

    I’ve had no issues with Abe’s of Maine in the past but they always call you after placing an order online to try to sell you more than what you purchased. They initially say it’s for “verification” purposes but it’s really to up-sell.

    • bob2

      that IS bait and switch! Abes of Maine has been using their sleazy tactics since at least the mid 1980′s (before the Internet!) as I recall seeing their ads in Modern and Popular Photography. They claim the battery is not included, the battery is undersized, etc.

      • rt-photography

        exactly. it was from the pophotography magazine. I called them and they said, well it doesnt include this or this. you have to pay extra. and I was new to photography at the time. called adorama to see why they were more expensive from others advertsisng for cheap. they said, others are selling grey market, dont include all nthe original items nikon includes as standard. so cheap is expensive.

      • Mandrake

        It would only be bait and switch if you don’t get your product at the advertised price. What they do is up-sell which is a common practice when visiting camera stores vs buying online. I have heard of fraudulent practices like you describe about not having the right sized battery, etc. I never heard it with Abe’s of Maine. I’ve purchased a few times from them and they never tried that with me. It’s usually just common things like trying to sell a filter when buying a lens, etc.

  • rt-photography

    Shady company that abes of maine..I wanted to buy an N90s years back. all the nikon included parts that were supposed to be included were not and they wanted to sell it as extra payment. thieves. I personally only buy from Adorama/BH/tristate and in that order. ive also bought a lot of stuff from amazon. but I dotn really need any gear. tall the small accessories you can get from asian sellers for very cheap. mounts, and flash grips, and all the tiny things that we need as photogs

  • Marc Beckerman

    Still too expensive for the Nikon D610. If you want the full frame camera for the masses to be actually purchased by the masses, get the darn price down to no more than $1,200 USD.

        They aren’t, Admin is doing a disservice

    • Dpablo unfiltered

      This will take about another year of continued production combined with the continued production of 50 f1.8 lenses. Quite a radical step, but nothing short of that will do…

    • Ronan

      … It’s beyond cheap. That’s what the D300 was going for when it came out!!!

  • Rickjames

    Amazon has Lightroom 5 for $70

  • http://www.twitter.com/tsayguy tsayguy

    NR, can you confirm if this D610 is a grey market version? There’s no indication either way on the Abe’s site.

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      I cannot confirm – it doesn’t say anything. A reader called them and they told him that it is an import.

    • Rodolfo Arechiga

      Or it may be a refurb. Read the wording as it says “Brand new Factory Fresh” what does that mean?

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      Ok, Abe’s of Maine are not listed as an authorized US Nikon dealers, so I assume this is a grey market. I will update my post. http://www.nikonusa.com/en_US/IMG/Images/Corporate/Where-to-Buy/Nikon_Authorized_Dealers.pdf

  • mikeswitz

    I’ve had almost no problems with Abe’s as long as I say “no” to everything else they try to sell me. I say almost, because once, a long time ago, I ordered an N90s with a couple of zooms for a very good price. They sent me a bunch of other crap I didn’t want and hadn’t asked for. So they wanted me to send it back and pay for return shipping. My wife called them back, and (she is amazing at this) somehow got Abe(pronounced A B) on the phone and after 3 minutes of haggling she got AB to give us the crap for free and charge us the initial price.
    So if you buy from them and you have a problem…just call my wife.

  • T53

    Don’t know if they still do it, but Abe’s of Maine (Really in NJ) will charge your card the instant you order the item NOT when they ship it.

  • Mansgame

    Sounds shady…

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      It must be grey market – I updated my post.

      • Rodolfo Arechiga
        • Bamboojled

          If they’re not a dealer it can’t have a US warranty

          • Rodolfo Arechiga

            I’m just posting the link where they claim to be USA warranty. Check it out.

      • Spy Black

        Says right on that link:
        “Brand New Factory Fresh Import Model”
        Says it all, no?

        • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

          this was no there before

  • iamlucky13

    Most of these “sales” aren’t worth posting about. Just look at the Amazon link, for example. You can get the 70-200 F/4 for a whopping $3 off.

    Yawn.

    Also, Lightroom 5 is only $69.99 for the download only version. If you want a disc, it’s $99.99.

    Since I’m not the type to upgrade my software unless it has something I know I need, and Adobe has a demonstrated track record for not supporting users who don’t compulsively upgrade (such as last year’s decision not to support users of the most popular operating system in the world – XP only dropped to second place in the middle of this year and has 3 times the users as the next closest competitor), making myself dependent on that download always being available isn’t an option for me.

    Be reasonable Amazon and/or Adobe. As evidenced by all the cheap movies and video games on sale, it costs $3 to press, box, and ship a disc.

    Heck, go ahead and round up to $75. There’s plenty of us who would gladly pay the extra $5 to have the disc and a physical UPC label to use as proof of purchase if necessary.

    • Scott Kantrowitz

      FYI: The Lightroom 5 deal was available with disc yesterday (12/2) at 2:00P EST…that’s when I bought a copy. I don’t know how long it was offered that way.

  • max
