just ordered my A700 this morning.

Got it from ritz so i should have it in a few days.

I went with ritz and paid more cause if its defective on arrival i can take it back locally.

I have officially answered my own question on the best place to buy when ritz price matched dell.com who had it for $1259.99

Ritz said we cant go that low but we can do $1271.80

That works out even better cause dell charges about $75 in tax on that camera.

I got the camera for 1271.80 plus the $36 to have it delivered saturday.

alright now i have a new problem.

I have a cheap quantaray tripod which has worked fine up until now and i dont think that it is going to work to well with my new camera. Any recommendations that wont cost as much as the new camera. sub $200 range with head.

thanks, Ecap

ecap,

Did you notice the Tripods and Heads forum? You might get an answer to your question if you post over there.

Good luck!
