Take a look again if possible, in the London,ON store, they were not all together. Then if they don't have them ask if they can get them in. FutureShop have them for $79.95 & CompuSmart has & may still have them on sale for $69.95 but that's after a $20.00 mail rebate.

Thanks Jaydee. I went and picked one up.

I still haven't found an A60 or A70 available in Canada yet.
Have you seen any?

Hi Dave, glad you did, now we just have to get a camera to put the media in, I haven't as yet seen a A60 or A70, in Canada. Hopefully we'll see them soon.

Yes - I have e-mails in to most place I can think of asking them to let me know when these are available. When I know I'll let you know.

What is your educated guess on the A70 selling price in Canada?

Here is my guess: US sugg. sell price is:$ 449 and it is selling for $349 or almost 25% off
The same discount against the Canadian suggested list of $615 would give $475. We'll see if we get as good of a discount as the Americans.

I just got a e-mail from Softmagic.ca & they said the A60 should sell for the same price as the A40 & the A70 should sell around $599.00, but I think that's a bit high for the A70, so my guess is around $499.95 to about 519.95.
They also said that the cameras would be in by months end.
And remember this site is in Quebec so there's no PST, just a small shipping charge.

I agree that $599 against a suggested list price of $615 is too high.
That would mean that the A60 would sell for $399 (same as A40) and the A70 would be $200 more - for about 1MP and a better movie mode. If thats the case I may reconsider the A70.

Waiting (somewhat) patiently.

I have been looking at Softmagic as well - the PST savings sure helps.

Dave.
