I just spoke with a rep from the brick and mortar Camerworld in downtown Portland Oregon. He advised they wouldn't be seeing the D70 for a few months. I asked if that would reduce the price of the D100 and he was non-committal but intimated it was possible.
The manager at the camera supply store where I pre-ordered mine said they are expecting their 1st order the 2nd or 3rd week in march. He qualified this by telling me, "at least that's what they're TELLING us..."
I expected more from PMA also, but its not over. I noticed B&H and several others are taking preorders on-line. It probably won't be until April. I expected more news on lenses especially the 70-180 macro which has seemed to have disappeared but not discontinued. Why?
I have noticed that one online store in the UK states that the D70 + AF-S DX 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G SG IF ED - RRP £999.99 will be available in March, but D70 Body only - RRP £799.99 will not be available until the summer.
