Default Best price for D70

Hi!

Can anybody recommend a place in Canada/USA to shop for a D70? I'm only entering the SLR scene, and being a student the budget is tight!

Thank you!

Being that the d70 is so new, I doubt your going to fine many, if any dealers going below the asking price which is $1000 for the body only and $1299 for the body and lens. If you can wait after the initial excitment has calmed and the camera is not back ordered, then you'll probably begin to see a bit of competition in the price.

As far as reliable places to buy the camera, I'd look at www.adorama.com, www.bhphotovideo.com, and www.wolfcamera.com. I ordered mine mine at wolfcamera.com on 2/29 and they did not charge my card untill it shipped. It shipped Friday, March 19th and I received it Monday, March 22nd. Shipping was free and no tax of course.

Default Support your Local camera shop

If one is still available, support your local camera shop.
Even if the price was slightly higher that is an investment. But for new models the prices are very likely to be the same.
Support your local economy and preserve your pleasure to actualy deal with people that care for photography.
IMO the way an SLR feels is a huge part of the decision process. You do not get that shopping online.
As a customer and cannot believe that a city the size of Houston has only about 3 real photo shop left.

Wait for at leat 3 more months before you can get any further discount than $999 and $1,299 (with the lens). They are selling like hot cake now at those prices, no one will attempt to offer any additional at this time when the demand is more than the supplies.

Cheers
