Anybody have any experience with them? Seems like a gray market dealer.

Run fast in the opposite direction. Numerous previous posts about them.

grey market dealer. No USA Manufacturer warranty.
Stick with B&H or Adorama.They have been known to strip out parts of the camera that came with the manufacturer and resell it to you. As previously stated run and don't spend your money at Abe's

Before changing hands when they were actually Abe's of Maine they had a good reputation. Since then though they have become a bait and switch outfit and gray market dealer. Would recommend you steer clear of them.

They were very good years ago, but then they changed hands and moved out of Maine. Manufacturers set camera prices, so a low price is not a good sign.

Some good dealers -
Adorama, Amazon, B&H, Cameta, Costco, Crutchfield, Hunt’s, Robert’s

Run as fast as you can in the opposite direction from their address and don't even stay on the same street - you can get contaminated by a GAS attack, return, and be forever sorry you doubled back. ABE is not ABLE to be honest - period!

Others advise you to run away. I say don't buy from them but if you're near their store come and take a look. Perhaps you can take some pics and let us see?

I bought a Lens from them and it was bait and switch You don’t need to do business with them there not honest business if you’re curious about their business practices google the Better Business Bureau in their city and see what up about them Good luck

What do they say about the deal that seems too good?
