    Exactly and with lowest net price.
    Yes and no. One's contract for supply is with the retailer in the UK
    and so may be difficult to enforce from other countries. Purchase
    using a credit card may give some protection depending on local
    legislation.

    However, don't assume that EU Directives on Distance Selling,
    warranties and so on are implemented uniformly. People have confused
    periods of warranty with statutes of limitation (i.e. period during
    which a claim or legal action can be taken). For example, in the UK,
    the statute of limitation is 6 years, but it does not mean that goods
    are sold with 6 year warranty.

    Nonetheless, there are cheap flights and Thalys trips. :)

    if that were true, there'd never be a version 2 of anything because all
    the features would already be in version 1.

    there was indeed a bug, but it was a rare bug and one which phil askey
    & simon joinson could not even duplicate in their testing.

    bug fixes are stronger evidence of something being rushed to market,
    because if the quality assurance team had done their job, they'd have
    found the bugs.

    was nikon's d70 rushed to market when over a year later, they issued a
    firmware release that implemented all of the new features found in the
    d70s (other than hardware) for the older d70? nikon did the same thing
    with the d2x and d2xs. should nikon have waited a year to release the
    successor instead?

    It's pretty clear that Canon release a new model but Nikon release a
    firmware (free) update. Those updates are often upgrades and the sales
    figures for Nikon reflect their concern for customers.

    Canon measure their success in market share. Well pretty soon their
    measurement of success is going to take a nose dive. I'm not the first
    (nor the last) Canon user to dump the brand and go Nikon.

    With hind sight I would not have believed the advise I got and would
    have been Nikon D from the start. Oh well... I guess I should be glad
    I've been able to do it now.

  4. I'm only applying the famous Rita-logic ... on Nikon.
    Ah, yes, you have no real world knowledge about these things.

    i was unaware there was anything other than troling from rita that one
    could remotely even consider to be any form of logic.
    actually i have quite a bit, having worked on both engineering and q/a
    teams.

  8. Sure it did or does. From you current view, it may not be a negative, yet.

    Well, unless you are not on earth.
