I was just re-reading a review of the D700 at:
http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikond700/

...and noticed at the end of the article some prices for the body only just shy of (I guess it's US Dollars) $3600. I shook my head, blinked my eyes, and looked again. Twelve vendors are listed within a dollar of each other at just under $3600.

What the heck is going on here? Scalping by vendors? Many of the vendors do have poor reputations, but still...what's going on? Is there a shortage?

Why would dpreview want to direct visitors to vendors that grossly overcharge?
