So the D100 was advertised in the New Zealand Herald today for $7,500 NZ -$3,7500.US which includes a 12.5% G.S.T.(Goods and Servies Tax, alias, Govt .Salvation Tax) The rate of exchange is approx $1NZ=48.5 U.S.cents. You can see why mail order companies are in business but warentee is always a problem and I are a clutz. I`ll wait and see the Fuji S2 Pro - it doesnt seem to be as picky about auxilaries like I think I can use my old and trusty SB-24! The fancy pixels sound cool on theFuji. Download to buffer sounds dodgy,timewise on the D100. I dont like the idea of having to pay extra for software for the D100. Be interesting to have a go on comparisons... ANYWAYS,IM DROOLIN!
