"Paid too much? The costs factored in?"


West of Santa Monica, US
          

I bought 2) EN-EL 15's last night from Amazon, through One Call in Tacoma.

These batteries were listed at $72 plus or minus, B & H has no stock, listed at $60.

The D7K's (0ne in hand one on B/O at Samy's) retail plus tax, that's fair.

I've an assignment in DK and HAD to have the batteries for back up, would have paid more but found out after the fact that Amazon shipping and handeling exceeds what buying direct would have been for expedited shipping.

However, too much trouble to cancel and reorder, especially as only three on hand.

Lesson learned, Amazon dunnage is a little higher then to get a cut, not complaining but....next time I'd go around them in order to shave a few points when playing and paying retail.

I just ordered an EN-El 15 from Adorama. They do not have them in stock and are listed as on backorder for $59.95. We will see when they actually come in.

I went to my local shop today to buy a filter and asked about the battery and when they thought they'd be receiving them. Turned out they had just received their shipment today so i bought one. Price was $58.

My local shop called me yesterday 11-15 they had battery in stock. I paid full retail 72.00 but I will get them to cut me some slack on a future purchase. Was not going to haggle on a item I could not get anywhere else. I needed one so I pulled the trigger. They also had the new grip in stock also.

That's my take as well, these are no longer available from the web dealer in Tacoma and now, I don't have to think about it for the shoot.

I guess that's the metaphor here.

Grip looks cool, but need Zoom H4N before the grip.

I'm excited by possibilities, getting video chops into the mix.

Exposures and F-stops will be a challenge at first as this camera doesn't have in viewer adjust for WB exposure like the D3S, but it's a great camera up through 6400 and replaces my D90 in the kit.

Cheers,

Rob

$70 for a battery is ridiculous.... Was the retail cost for previous generation of the battery as high?

That's likely the retail and MAP is $60.

I got them, have the charger running and agree it's a rip at some level. Unfortunately, last year in NYC, had to buy a D90 battery on Broadway, they were asking double, I was DOA and B & H and Adormama were closed for the Succot.

That WAS a rip off by far.
