I can't speak specifically for Digitial Photo, but a great deal of the NY houses sell gray market goods, meaning that some of the items may be blems, refurbished, without warranties, not from dealers, etc. Many people took the risk and were burned. I was told (but cannot confirm) that if you buy goods from gray market dealers, then the manufacturers won't honor the warranty.
In any event, spend a few more extra dollars and buy from a well known place.
BTW, you will notice that most major stores, web sites, etc. price match other reputable stores, but they will NEVER price match a gray market store.
I forgot to mention that I bought not one, but TWO Leupold Vari-X III 4.5x-14x-50mm AO ILLUMINATED scopes from DNR Sports in the last year. Their prices, at least on these two models, were the absolute lowest on the net, AND their service was great.
Today I just bought 6 Pachmyer Decelerator recoil pads from DNR Sports. Take a look at my posting on the Bolt Action Rifle section. They again had the lowest prices on these pads and I researched everywhere on the net.
