hey.. i think MS also out of stock.. coz i brought the last set from them last week! :bsmilie:
they only left D70s body, no kit set left.
anyway FYI i read this thread that says he brought a D70s Kit package (free 1g cf, nikon bag) from Funan Havey Norman at $1760..
which is cheaper then MS by 10 bucks! and get an extra free bag!
maybe u shd try calling Havey Norman @ Funan.. oh ya the person mention abt the supervisor selling him at that price.. so u try calling the supervisor..
Just my 50 cents worth... Do buy the kit if you're starting out. The lens is really good for the price you pay. Unlike other the kit lenses of other manufacturers, the 18-70 is well constucted with good optical performance. It's not some el-cheapo plastic that you discard after a few months of use.
