Well I,ve done it now I ordered my D100 from BH with all the bells and whitles.The only thing that I am missing is the wide angle lens I like to get which is the 12-24 f4G_AF-S-DX Does anyone know when it will be available in the USA? I read an english photomagazine and they seem to be available there. I think this forum is one of the best I have learned an enormous amount. God Bless America Jon Stadman

Greys of Westminster in UK usually get their hands on pre production versions and print advance reports - but nothing yet on this lens. I believe there is a review of a pre production version on Borg Rorslets site.
