    amazing.

    One enquires about availability of Nikon scanners.

    Reply:

    "Unfortunately there is a world wide shortage on the scanner,
    and Maxwell Australia haven't given any ETA's for the scanners."

    As usual: let's drop the stock on the thing, stuff the demand,
    fabricate a "worldwide" shortage and just force everyone into
    digital! What the heck, it's a lot easier to stock on P&S
    cameras.

    I just wonder how much of the so-called lack of demand for
    film gear is not a fabrication.

    About time Nikon picked another agent here...

    actually, supply from maxwell's has been whoefull of late. they also
    lost several staff that do not appear to have been replaced.
    I wonder if there is more to it than simply being low on stock?

    Given that there is now a Nikon Australia web site, one has to wonder.

    about bloody time!
    we might finally get proper supply of Nikon gear.
    Instead of crappy excuses about the "small size of
    the Australian market" and other such rubbish...

    There has been talk that Maxwell are not paying there accounts. Hence
    Nikon and the stock is only just being represented in Australia.

    I hear also that Nikon are to setup there own distribution in Australia
    if Maxwell don't get there act together.

    actually... I think that has been there awhile..... I think maxwells are
    mirroring the main Nikon site.... and have done so for guite awhile.

    other than those in the industry... most people woul dnot know whi
    maxell's is.... it would make sense to have nikon.com.au as part of your
    domain.
