I'm from Perth also, living in the UK for 12 months at the mo.

Did you check out Camera Electronics in North Perth?, I get most of my Nikon stuff from them.

http://www.cameraelectronic.com.au/

BTW: they were doing very good prices on new F100's (Note: F100 not D100)

Its not out yet thats why, If it were me I'd hold off till its out if only to see if it pushes the used price of the original D1 down some.

Should be a bit less than $13,000 ....Maxwells the Aust Nikon agent has the D1x (kit?) listed at 12,159.00 (rec retail) and I've found just about every retailer can do a bit better than that. Also think of a weekend trip to Bali .... A Duty free 10% GST savings is not to be sniffed at when we are talking that sort of money (best check on that but, there maybe a $$ limit I dont know about)

>Help me please.

28 pic ?? ... sorry you have lost me there.

Good Shooting

BTW: Camera Electronics rent the D1 camera, check there web site for details
