#1. "RE: Why is D70 more expensive in the UK?" In response to Reply # 0
I don't know the explanation either! But one good thing about the strong pound is that we can get things a lot cheaper if we buy them overseas. So far, I've gotten a speedlight, one camera body, and 2 lenses from the US at very competitive prices, even if I had to pay duties and the VAT (which I needn't because I'm still a student). What's more, I'm likely to turn a profit if I unload the stuff onto the UK second hand market (which I wouldn't...NAS... must resist...)
Anyway, back in my hometown of Singapore, the D70 is going to hit stores tomorrow, with a price tag of roughly S$2100, which is around 660 pounds or US$1230.
