    cleaning kit is about $10 max (not needed)
    extra high speed 512 card is about $80+, normal one is 60+ 70+ i think
    safety case is er... $20? (not needed, but might be good to have)
    i think if u wack them harder can get a tripod @ 749 (dun say i say one). muz ask nicely and talk nicely..

    me, i'll get the $610 one.

    Just bring down your e-quote from MS to Comex and show them. By doing a comparison, they might be able to give you a better deal.

    i heard that MS quote is w/o gst. So with GST it comes to abt $640. Then plus the 512SD (i'd think about 60-70). That'd be close to $710 already. Then with then safety case and cleaning kit = almost the same.

    Just my 2 cents.

    FX8 - $649 incl GST and can pay by credit card inclusive of camera case and 2x 512Mb Sd card (think its kingston)

    what is market price of 256MB and 512MB Sd card?

    the Fx9 i bargain a bit cause buying 2 sets, the guy actually willing to throw in a OEM batt for both sets....but in the end think i buy from MS , add batt, add Sd card, want come up to the same or slightly cheaper....the stupid safety case, so big n bulky, where got use??

    If FX8 is $599 & FX9 is $749, then i think FX9 not worth it...
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    I ended up with the FX9 - came with a 1gb card, 1 spare battery, cleaning kit, camera case, and this big ass safety case thing with lots of foam at $749 at COMEX. I guess the price will drop if you wait long enough. I guess 1gb card and battery should work out to be about $150? so that would make it a fairly good offer even if u don't consider the other nonsense like the cleaning kit and safety case.

    A friend of mine helped me buy it at about 7pm on the last day. They had run out of the black one already. (which IMHO was the best looking colour). I wasn't there on that day. But it was quite crowded.
