I just commented on a similar post today. Come on, this is a brand new camera. you're gonna pay what they are selling it for - $2999 - at least for a few months. Buy it for that or wait until the D3X or D800 or whatever comes next is announced and you'll save money but until then this is the latest greatest and it comes with a common street price. I don't think you will see it for less than the B&H price and if you do it will either be out of stock or not more than a $25 difference. When was the last time you bought a brand new camera that was just out on the market for $1000+ off the going street price?
