Well if you want better than bestbuy, I think it's pretty much down to http://www.colonialphotohobby.com/ unless someone tells us differently. I think even RITZ has gone from the florida mall now.

http://www.colonialphotohobby.com/ is a "hard core" photo and hobby shop by which I mean, they have a very good range of cameras and importantly, lenses with lots of people who feel like they're very helpful but really are a bit snooty and I find them more than a little irritating :( I literally have to bite my tongue to avoid being camera-snobby back to them. Their prices are RRP and they get offended quickly if price matching is mentioned ;-)

In short, great if you want to browse lenses in Orlando but with small-camera-we-know-it-all attitude. Apparently the area isnt great but theres a carpark right next door and I've never felt very threatened.

If you already know what you want, amazon.com will deliver to villas/hotels etc

Thanks Keith. He has decided to wait until we are back home for the lense. We did go to Best Buy though for a couple more memory cards and the strap. :yes:
