Yahoo i'll most likely be getting the Fx9 tomorrow from MS Colour!
They quoted me $596.40(with gst) for the package that includes a 512mb SD card and a original leather case!

Is that a good deal? Any idea if i could get a better deal elsewhere?

Thanks!

I think $699 is the normal recommended retail price, in any branches of Best Denki, Harvey Norman or Courts. And traditional camera shops like Alan Photo, Cathay or MSColor will sell at a lower price than the recommended retail price. ($610?)

You forgot to add, at $699, they also throw in more 'freebies', so got to consider the total package.

Ok, u are right.
I just got the FX9 (black one) from Alan Photo last night, $600 inc GST, with case and 512M SD card, I then paid extra $50 to upgrade the 512M to 1G SD card, paid $28 for a OEM extra battery.

These cards dont corrupt easily, unless u soak them in seawater, nail them with hammer, burn them with lighter etc. I prefer 1pc big capacity memory card so I can just leave it in the camera and no worry of losing them elsewhere, personal choice really.

SD cards are more versatile than CF cards...
some say SDs are more water risistant than CFs
