Tread, not thread, when you close threads, it's thread, not tread ;)


Anyway Comex is coming, the price should be the RRP of $2100 but you will get freebies to go along with it, but generally speaking, I prefer to buy the kit alone and gather up the 'freebies' with cash along as I go. :)

If you need help in getting at Comex, can let me know, maybe I can make a trip down with you on saturday :)

If Nikon is releasing any new bodies in near future, it's likely all of them will be higher-end models and more expensive than D70.

If you find D70's price point suits you, go for it. If you have the budget to spend more, wait until Photokina, end of Sept.

I think he was asking when's a good time to get the D70 at, he listed choices of now, wait until Comex, (fill in), don't think he's looking at other models.. heehee... :)

Would the freebies justify that pricing at COMEX? 512 mb cf card but the coolpix 8700 gets a 1gb free card? Doesn't sound right to me. Usually their free bags are also lousy and what's the metal lcd hood for? You think if we wait till the last day and they haven't sold off the stocks yet, they'll throw in even more freebies??

the longer you wait to buya D70, the longer you are depriving yourself of the joy of owning a D70 ;) (hahaha....nikon council will be proud of me for saying this )

Lords is selling the kit at about $2050 with gst. If you don't need the extra gifts (which are normally things that you don't really need) what are you waiting for? Even the price of sandisk ultra II has fallen to $195 at Lords.....to me, sounds like a fantastic deal already! (please note, i am in no way related or working for them......)

hurry! hurry! :bsmilie:

Strategies you can employ to save $ for D70:
1. Breast feed
2. Use washable nappies.
