Default Thanks Steve

Many thanks for getting the FZ10 review up. It certainly helped me make my decision. Only have to decide if I sould pay Ritz the extra cash. :?

Default Ritz online

Steve: Excellent and very timely review. Thank you.

Gene: Some of us have been able to get Ritz to do a price match by calling them. The results here have been mixed: some people were able to negotiate better prices than others, and some couldn't get Ritz to budge from the full list price. (The variable price is understandable; the occasional refusal to negotiate just doesn't make sense to me.)

I was medium-successful: they matched my original pre-order price from another vendor, but some other people have gotten an even better price. The best news is that they shipped the same day and the camera is almost here.

If you call Ritz and they won't budge, try calling back during their next shift: you may get a different supervisor as well as a different sales person. If they are stubborn, it might help to point out that you're perfectly willing to wait a while longer to get the discount from someone else. You certainly won't be calling Ritz for a price match once the discounters have the camera in stock!

I'm finding these reviews very exciting and have pretty much made up my mind to get this camera!

Go for it Jan. Dave may have to set up another forum for "test shots"
for new cameras at http://www.onlinephotographers.com
I guess you would be the fourth one to grab the brass ring.

Apparently, if you know someone who got a better deal from Ritz ($530 shipped is the best I've heard so far), you can just give their name and zipcode and Ritz will automatically give you that price. Apparently, there are prices that are considered acceptable according to their sales policies, and as long as you give them a name/zip, I guess it makes it that much more legitimate (?).
