Default Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in

I was all settled on purchasing the Canon S200. Now I here that the Canon A70 is going to be available soon for the same price as the S200. I was wondering how long I would have to wait for the A70 to be available. The A70 looks like a great deal for a frugal consumer such as myself and I can't seem to pass it up. How long does it normally take for a camera to come to market after the announcement?

Thanks,

Shiggy

Quick, I'd say a month or so max. However I never buy new models just out as they are over priced and might have teething problems.

Thanks Steve, I will take that under advisement. I heard the A70 will be $300 and that seems like a fair price so it looks like I will probably wait for it to come out. What teething problems normally ocurr on new cameras. All minor issues I hope.

Thanks,

Shiggy

Difficult to say what teething problems you might get. Usually firmware problems but if they are serious the makers will put out a firmware up-date. In fairness I've not heard of many.

Most problems are hi-lighted on this site or similar.
