shopdigitaldirect.com is a nightmare. Stay away. Lots of bait & switch. It's impossible to purchase a real, U.S. warranted Nikon D700 for anything less than the big merchant price of $2799-$2999. There's actually no need for any merchant to sell for any less than $2999 unless a customer is purchasing a whole bunch of additional gear at the same time and merits a small discount of some sort as a result.
