I have purchased from Abe's of Maine in the past and they have always been very well priced, extremely helpful and the delivery has been quick and as promised. I don't make these purchases often, but they are a lot of money and I feel secure doing business with Abe's of Maine. I purchased a camera and lens plus warranty from Abe's of Maine.

First time using this website. Found the best price on the lens I'm looking for so. Looking forward to using it. I will be using it for mainly wildlife photography. Other websites are at a much higher price. I have done a lot of research on sigma lenses and they seem to have a quality product.

Found your site in a Google search and was pleased to see you had the lowest price for a new camera and lens set up. Easy ordering. Purchased based on a recommendation from a friend as looking for a new easy to use camera for wildlife photos and video. Happy to be a new customer of Abe's.

Price was by far the best on the market, they don’t charge out of state tax, and they have been around for a long time with a great reputation!!!! I selected free ground shipping, so that’s the only unknown right now…but I have no doubt it will arrive quick and safe!!

I bought the Tamron 24-70 lens with no problem. It was easy to order. The item was offered for a great sales price. This is a great lens and I did not want to spend over $2000 for Canons 24-70 lens. I will be coming back to Abe's of Maine in the future.

The ordering process was extremely pleasant. The website is easy to navigate and products very well displayed with accurate information. The bundle option is a great way to find Good deals. Recommend this site to all my friends. Have ordered a camera in 2019. Quality is very good. They carry many brands and many accessories.

I am upgrading from a hobby DSLR camera to a mirrorless full-frame body. I had a smooth experience ordering from your website. I found a great camera at an excellent price! I look forward to receive my new camera and lenses in the mail! I would consider making a future purchase from your website.

Abe's advertises Fuji cameras at a lower price than all competition, enticing you to buy from their store to save money. Once you are lured in and place your order they send you an email that you are not getting the USA made camera, but the Asian made item. Then they sent the camera in an old Fuji box that was torn both inside and out with large tears in multiple places. I sent photos of the horrid box but they have yet to send a new box and refuse to respond to my emails. If I could post photos of the box I believe no one would buy from them again. I do not recommend this company.

I found this lens Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4S at a great price brand new at Abe's of Maine. Once I receive it will try it out and let everyone know how it went. The checkout process was smooth and I was able to find the product without any issues on the website.

Cost was good, but only fair considering the lens doesn't come with the hood. Accessories that were recommended did not even fit the lens (not all of them, at least) which is why I knocked down a star.

So far, all I have done is order camera/spend money. I will withhold any further comments until I have it in hand. However, the website was easy to use and the ordering process was straightforward. Thank you.

Very happy. Hopefully will be back soon to purchase a lens. Seemed like a great price for the Sony camera I purchased. Hopefully the financing is 0% like they claim. Very excited to get my new camera this week.

Easy to look around the website. I love how they have so many options and for such a great price. I like the option where I can get my camera the next day's shipment. I enjoyed how detailed they are with each product. I would highly recommend this website to anyone looking for cameras at a great price.

Nikon cameras are priced well. I could not find a lower price online. I also looked on Amazon and went to some camera stores. The website is easy to use. Looking forward to receiving the camera and starting to take photos. Looking forward to ordering more lenses. I’m ready to go!!!

I ordered a Nikon CoolPix P1000 from them, the next day I received an email asking to call Adam about my order I called and was told I has ordered a "grey market" camera (non USA, no warranty, no battery, no charger). I told him I had a CoolPix P950 and asked if the battery was the same. He said, "No! "and offered me a warranty & battery for an extra $150.00.
When the order arrived I found the camera took the same battery as my P950. I contacted the company to complain and asked for a refund of the extra money I paid. In return I would send back the battery & charger. After haggling back and forth with them they agreed for me to keep the batter and they would refund me the cost of the warranty. I never received any refund. This is a a "bait & switch" company for sure just read the 1 star reviews and you will see how many people have the same complaint.

Easy to order and great price. I've been looking for this lens for a while and it was a great user experience. I would highly recommend this site to my friends. The only challenging part was that the shipping form was not clearly visible and I had some difficulties submitting.

It was easy to do and even gave suggestions on things to buy with it like the case. I found the website easy to maneuver through and I was able to get what I needed. The camera is out of stock on most websites but this one so I hope it gets to me in a timely manner because I need it soon.

This was one of the easiest processes for my purchase for a new camera and the prices are the best I could find anywhere online or in stores. Checkout was a pinch and I will come here for all my photo and video equipment needs. The Abe's of Maine are simply unbeatable. Thanks for a great experience.

Advertised a good price. Placed order. Order held until I returned a phone call to sales to be upsold on a warranty and told that the product was grey market (no mention on website of this). Went ahead and bought the product anyway. Shipped it FedEx with signature required. Since I cannot be home for the shipments, I tried to get FedEx to hold the product at a facility for pickup. They told me that Abe's shipped it requiring no changes allowed to delivery. Now, I have to play the game of the product being out on a truck for two days before FedEx will hold it after two failed attempts. If you've never missed a signature required delivery, you can't pick it up until after 5pm and then you only have until 7 pm to get it. Then, it goes out on a truck again so you can't get it. After two days of this, you then only have a couple of days to make it into the FedEx facility before they return to sender. This shop is so annoying. I should have just ordered from Amazon.

I've been comparing prices and weighing my options for a few weeks, this sale was extremely good! I've purchased from Abe's before and so it's a store that I trust for my camera equipment. The web interface has improved over time and the suggested accessories were spot on.

The site was fairly organized and easy to navigate and the price for my purchase was fabulous. I wish I could filter the camera lenses that only fit the Sony A7 IV camera I was shopping for. Otherwise an excellent experience. I was not able to locate the used equipment department.

I shopped around for a few days for the camera of my preference and found Abe’s of Maine had the exact camera at nearly a $300 difference compared to their normal competitors and that of the big name online stores. The process was fast, easy and secure. Would recommend to Abe’s to include a PayPal option.

The pre-qualification was a bit buggy, but that wasn't from Abe's, but rather a 3rd party API. Checkout process very simple and great pricing on what I was looking for. Highly recommend to anyone in the market for a new camera.
