Eager to please!

"Not often when you place an order online that you get a follow up phone all on you shipping preferences. They even shared a little info on the camera I was buying and letting me know their impression of the quality. I was very pleased when I received the camera and I got it quickly! They were the best price on the Internet by far! "

A case in point.

"I dealt with a representative named Michael who was exceedingly polite and helpful.
Unfortunately, I also wanted to include a Pelican case with my order and this was not in stock. The back order time was too long and therefore it had to be purchased elsewhere. Pity !

Easy Peasy

"When I was looking for an all in one lens for my Nikon D5200, I had decided on the 18mm - 300mm and of all the places I looked 42nd street had the best price and it wasn't just for the lens, it was as a kit and the price was still the best."

Great customer service

"When searching for a camera lens, I priced out Amazon and other online retailers. I found the best price through 42nd Street on the Sony 55-210mm F/4.5-6.3mm NEX Lens. I wasn't entirely sure about ordering through them at first, but I called in and received excellent customer service and advice on buying. I received the lens quickly and am highly satisfied with my experience. "

Nephew Winning Awards with his first Camera from 42nd Street Photo

"I have been buying from 42nd Street Photo for approximately 40 years. They have always been very helpful on the phone when I had questions about what I was buying. Recently, my nephew showed an interest in photography and I didn't know if it was a passing phase. I wanted to get something decent, but not break the bank. They suggested a Cannon T5 which was priced right and easy to use. His self taught photography has taken off. He is now taking photos in many countries and has won awards. Thank you 42nd Street Photo to get a novice started!"

42nd Street Photo is number one in photography

"I have been a photography enthusiast for years. I have been a customer of 42nd Street Photo for a long time. So when I decided to buy a professional grade Nikon, 42nd Street Photo was my first stop. After explaining to the salesman my interests and my experience with medium format cameras, he suggested the Nikon D810. He went over all of the features the D810 has to offer and recommended the 18-300 Nikon lense based on my interests. I love this camera and lense. I highly recommend 42nd Street Photo they are well versed on the equipment they sell and understand the needs of photographers from beginners to professionals."

One stopshopping for all your camera needs!!

"When you have questions concerning your cameras or optics 42nd Street is your one stop shop. There is a reason this company has been in business for over 50 years, their standards and service is unsurpassed. When you are dealing with 42nd Street your mind is at ease; like speaking with an old friend from your home town. They will listen and help you determine what product best fits your needs, they will not push a product with extra bells and whistles and cost, but they ensure you get just what you need for your tasks. The staff explains everything in such a way that even a beginner to photography does not feel overwhelmed. Their selection of products is but far the best I have seen while online. I want to thank the entire staff for making my experiences nothing but pure pleasure."
