Nikon D70s availability in UK?

    My Yashica 230AF is finally giving up on me after 16 years service, and
    it seems like the time to move to to a DSLR. I have being researching
    the options available for the last few weeks and, not wanting to end up
    with another dodo (like the Yashica AF system), I decided to go for
    Canon or Nikon.

    Yesterday I went down to Jessops to lay my hands on the 350D and D70s.
    The 350D felt too cramped when I looked through the viewfinder, so that
    settled it. (I can't justify the extra expense of a 20D.)

    However, they didn't have any in stock. Nor do Grays of Westminster
    (who expect to have a few by the end of the week),'s
    delivery time just went from "1 to 2 weeks" to "4 to 6 weeks" overnight
    and have a message on their site saying "Nikon are
    [sic] currently experiencing production problems with the D70s."

    I'm not in any desperate rush to buy and can wait a few weeks, but does
    anyone know any more about this?

    According to
    They quote:

    *Nikon are currently experiencing production problems with the D70s.*
    We will keep you updated.

  3. Jacobs don't have it either. Nikon UK are all out.

    If I get an ETA, i'll post it here.

    Thanks. The delay gives me more time to justify the cost to my wife :)

    Also if Nikon have a problem with the D70s you may have had a lucky escape
    and you can get one when the problem is sorted.

    Yes, that was one thought that crossed my mind :)
