Where can I find a Z5U?

I am trying to buy a Z5U. I have called B&H and some other companies and they are out of stock until mid July!! Anyone know where I can buy one?

Thanks!

A friend of mine has been looking for one also. He found them in stock at a place called Zoommania at a unbelievably low price. As you might expect, they turned out to be one of those bait-and-switch scambags.

Zoommania - store.yahoo.com - Reviews, Ratings and Prices at ResellerRatings

I'm sure you know to stay away from these fraud artists, but thought I'd post a reminder to anyone who might be considering this kind of outlet since the Z5U seems to be out of stock at the major dealers.

Tim,

Have you placed your order? I'd like to email my friend about Calumet, but wouldn't him to grab one before you. Thanks.

Bill

Yes, we have ordered. I have ordered from them in the past and haven't had a problem.

I'm not absolutely positive, but I believe Calumet is reputable. I think I have ordered from them before.

Another company you might check is Adorama.

Calumet is quite reputable. Most of photogs I know get their stuff there without a problem.
