Almost bought a digital camera today. I spotted it yesterday, and the salesperson gave me a great price. Almost 50% off. I had no money on me, and told him I`d be back today. I checked on the net to be sure, and saw that the store`s camera was called DMCFZ2, not 20 as the current model. The new model is 5 MP, this was 3.2 MP. Seems like they tried to sell a 2 year old camera, and instead of telling me that, they said that they had ordered too many because of x-mas, and were willing to give me a good price. They look identical, and I`m happy I didn`t just buy it without being sure. What I really want is the D-70 because I have some great lenses that I could use with it. I might save up some more money, or buy a used one. I really wish I could do this easier. The scanning and posting is really timeconsuming, but it is so nice to look at all the postings and the comments I`ve got during these few months. Todays post is just weird. I love it.
You gotta watch those sales guys like a hawk! ":^)
What I did was bookmark it on Amazon and check every day or two. One day I found the D70 w/Lens for $170 off. I posted the link to my weblog for others to take advantage of but by afternoon it was gone.
Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0001LGDAO/
Here's one where I get a few cents if you buy: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0001LGDAO/jerryrig-com20/
They say it's the same price to you but I wonder if that's true with sales?
