    $1800 (estimated price, with 18-55 lens)
    at www.dirtcheapcameras.com.au.
    Still seems expensive, considering the rrp for the
    camera/lens kit in the US is $US999, which
    works out to AUD $1536 at current exchange rate.

    Closer to $1600 at any realistic rate. +GST gives $1760. And thats without
    considering the hedging costs that the company is building in to make sure
    they don't get burnt badly if the exchange rate moves too much in the wrong
    direction...

    I'd say $1800 is a pretty fair price based on that!

  10. $1536 plus $153.60 GST works out to $1689.60, so $1800 is only $110.40
    extra, or a 6.5% premium. hardly a ripoff!!!!! especially given the
    traditionally huge markup we face in oz...actually fairly decent. and i
    expect this to drop rapidly too, closer to $1600

    You might like to take a read of this review:

    http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/content_page.asp?cid=7-6270-6325

    Seems to do a reasonable job of pointing out the differences. Most other
    reviews I've read seem to tell you what you are getting, and not what you
    are missing out on.

    Regards,

    Excellent, all the flaws of a dslr system, plus cheap body to boot...

    Now the sony f828 is something i could get excited about... use it as at
    waist-lvl, with nightshot, the perfect candid/streetphoto camera.

  17. not with slow AF, average shutter lag/burst mode and crap noise at high ISOs
    it's not, plus like the 10D it's not exactly a small body. doesnt mean to
    say it won't work of course, but it's far from ideal for this application
    IMO.
