    In Canada. I've seen the Nikon discounted to $999 while Canon is
    obviously holding the retailers to $1299. Both prices include their
    respective kit lenses.

  2. Perhaps Canon outsells Nikon in Canada?

    Remember, the D50 is more of a competitor to the EOS-300D, while the
    D70s is more of a competitor to the EOS-350D.

    Maybe, maybe not. I try not to be biased because I have friends on both
    sides of the fence that shoot Canon and Nikon.

    What I find interesting is that I live in Canada, Toronto actually, and
    Rich's prices are not exactly accurate, which means Rich doesn't really
    know what he's talking about.

    Can we assign the title of "troll" to Rich...?

    Isn't this now an election year...?

    Where's my C8...?

    Ottawa, Galaxy Camera sells the D50 kit for CDN $900, and the XT kit for
    $1000. That's 10% less. Canada is not just Toronto...

    Better watch out for Galaxy. They listed the Sony R1 at $999 on their
    website.
    They "corrected it" to $1299 (Sony MSRP, same as everyone else) when I
    contacted them.

    Interesting to note, Galaxy Camera in Ottawa http://www.galaxycamera.com
    never had the R1 listed on their website. What URL did you visit? They don't
    have it in stock, but my guess is it will sell for $1,200 s they are about
    that much lower than Henry's et al on other items.

    Bear in mind with Costco you don't get a Canadian 2 year warranty as Costco
    sells US grey market cameras. This information is clearly posted on the
    webpage.

    Actually, they did. I cut and pasted the price they had when I
    emailed them to clarify it.
    The price for the Rebel XT was correct though.

    Sorry you are wrong, Galaxy never had the R1 on the page ever. In fact the
    Sony pages are out of date last up-dated July, 2005. The date stamp is auto
    updated from the CSS script whenever a page is updated. Nobody at Galaxy
    Camera has time at the moment to update that part of the website, nor will
    they list a price at under dealer net.

    Personally I can do without the x-mas wrap and the snowmen cursor.

    Over the holidays I saw it as a kit (the Rebel XT) as low as $975 Can
    or $826 U.S. approx.
