The warmth and professionalism of Abe's of Maine is top-tier, I spoke to Adam, he was friendly and to the point as he answered all of my questions. Also, the prices they offer on new, quality gear, are virtually unbeatable. I ordered a Sony A7 IV with a 24-70mm GM II lens. They had an unbelievable sale on the lens and a great price for the camera-body. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    First order from ABE's of Maine, so don't have history. Setting up account and ordering was very easy, for an old dodger like me. I have enjoyed photography for many years and have done some bird photography. I am upgrading my equipment especially for bird photography (not finished with the upgrade) but find Abe's easy to deal with thus far and the prices seem more than fair. My plan is to acquire a good telephoto lens, so I am salivating for a Nikon D500 SLR and it seems like Abe's has just what I am looking for.

    I just ordered an item and the review seemed to be required in a popup after my order. I am not sure how to review as this is my first time using Abe's of Maine and have just ordered, and not received my item as of yet. The ordering process was pretty straightforward, and I didn't have any technical issues with the website, but that's all I can say at this point. The item I ordered says it's new and is at quite a discount, so I can only hope that it's just like the lens I test-drove recently. :) Can't wait to get it!

    Great pricing on the camera but the accessories seemed slightly higher when compared to other retailers. Checkout was quick and simple and in addition I was able to qualify for zero interest financing. If the accessories had been lower cost I would have purchased all of them from Abe's of Maine. When I was more active in photography years ago - Abe's of Maine was one of my 3 go to choices which is why I picked them for my major camera purchase.

    I had been shopping left and right for a specific type of camera. I searched through so many stores and websites. I randomly found out about Abe's of Maine so I thought I'd try them out. So far so good. I purchased my camera from them because the price was a great deal. It has been an excellent experience so far. I'll be looking forward to doing business with Abe's of Maine for a while.

    Excited to get this gear. Thanks for the deal. Descriptions of products could be a bit more exciting to meet the momentous occasion of this kind of purchase. Overall psyched that you've offered great deals on great products. That's all I've got to say about that right now. Thanks!

    The website was fairly easy to use; I don't know why I can't use my Synchrony credit account at checkout, but other payment options were available to me. Also, Abe's has the Nikon P950 in stock while many other retailers have it on backorder.
