stevenz: B&H insist on using UPS for shipping though from memory which tends to be around the NZ$80 mark for even a small parcel, so often the shipping charges will offset much of the benefit of the lower prices. You may be better off getting them to ship to you via YouShop.
Handling fees tend to be in the $30-$40 region for smallish items in my experience.
B&H themselves though are totally reliable.
I agree. Their shipping is expensive. Find out how much before you buy, it may be better to use YouShop..
