A Shout Out!
I recently made the purchase of one of Nikon's new lens. The new 80-400 mm, more on this great lens next time. As great as it is to have camera super stores like B&H, or Adorama, to mention a few. They are not near me, sometimes you just want to give it a test drive so to speak. In my area of Southeastern Wisconsin area we have a Family who runs a A1 business, named Arts Camera Plus. I remember meeting the founder of the store Art, years ago, as my family ran a restaurant near there West Allis location. Since that time I've shopped at there stores multiple times, I've always been impressed by the knowledge and politeness of they staff.
So I guess the point I'm trying to make, Check out some of our local Camera stores, you maybe glad you did!
Till next time!
