Best web shopping site!

"I have bought many items from 42ND Street in the past and have always been satisfied with the products - cameras, lenses and accessories. My most recent purchase was even better because of the web site - it has great search capabilities, always pulling up the thing you are seeking, with excellent descriptions and useful information without a lot of "fluff". The best part, IMO, is the site's navigation and ease of use - I think it is easier to use than Amazon!
Great job, folks!

Great NYC Camera Store!

"As you should know, 42nd Street has been selling cameras a long time, and they have it all. Selection, knowledge, price and fast shipping. What more do you need? I bought a Panasonic Lumix as a travel camera and I am very satisfied. I recommend this store highly."

Easy as pie.

"Shopped around for the Canon EOS, as a gift for my wife. 42nd St photo had great pricing, and I talked with them (over the phone, with an actual human) about options, which was helpful. Sometimes you never know what you're going to get with online retailers, but this was exactly what we discussed. "

Fast and Professional Service

"I turned to 42nd Street Photo after a horrible experience with another seller company I found online. I had bought a camera from 42nd Street Photo back in the 1970s so tried them several decades later when I needed a digital SLR camera. They were extremely helpful and provided fast and professional service. When I turned to them again for a macro lens for some specialized photography, they again provided excellent and fast service. I would definitely use them again should I need additional photographic equipment."

Excellent Service

"I ordered a new lens for my Canon tIIi a while back and had a great experience. The sales rep was very friendly and knowledgeable and pointed me in the right direction for the lens that would suit my needs. As a novice, I found this to be extremely helpful..and I saved a few bucks too!"

Picture Perfect

"The camera recommended to me was spot on. Salesperson was not only knowledgable about the camera, but also wanted me to get the most I could get out of the camera. Pictures are incredible; he knew what he was talking about. Definitely recommend him to others looking for a high quality camera. Completely satisfied!"

Quick and easy

"I just purchased a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 20.1 Megapixel Digital Camera. I choose 42nd St Photo because they had the best combination of price and positive reviews. Ordering was quick and easy and I received a phone call confirming the purchase and shipping which I appreciate. I would do business with them again."

Love my lens

"I purchased my canon 24mm-70mm EF f/2.8L II USM at one of the 42nd st photo holiday promotion sales saving me money and getting an amazing lens that is so versatile. They hooked me up with accessories for the lens and was an overall great purchasing experience. I prefer to get my camera accessories and lenses from reputable companies like 42nd st. Photo. You can't go wrong. "

Picture Perfect!

"For someone new to ordering products online, I had one of the best experiences. I purchased a Canon camera not to long ago and it contained an amazing price, hd quality, and a perfect audio when editing videos recorded. If I ever need to purchase another camera or anything related, I will absolutely come back to 42nd Street Photo :) There are no better words to describe how much I like it. For the order date below, I don't exactly remember, other than it being in July 2015"

Fast Glass...

"Bought a Sigma 35mm f1.4 and Nikon 85mm f1.8 from these guys last year and the price was fantastic!
The order came really fast with out any delay or SNAFU, no bad surprises AND they threw in a set of filters (I really don't use them much).
These are still great lenses I shoot with them almost every day, I always check with 42nd street before I buy anything for my camera because I like to save money with no hassle!

Great Prices and Fantastic Customer Service

"I have been a customer of 42nd Street Photo for many years starting with the finest film cameras advancing through years of development of digital technology cameras. I have purchased everything from them getting the best price and receiving customer service next to none. Today there are so many unreliable dealers online today it is comforting to know that there is a company that actually not only has excellent product knowledge and great prices but they stand behind the products they sell by backing up the sale with good customer service."
