Lol, Apparently the D300 I borrowed has a dead battery. Or that specific camera drains very quickly when temps are 48F ...

Only got 2 shots tonight before it went "dead".

Hmm... I discovered today that my shutter is only two planes, and the hole isn't even perfectly circular as it closes...

I love the full frame for events with low light.. but I love the 7D for sport and its blazing fast AF and FPS. its also $1000+ cheaper... (thats almost an L lens in australia)
Stuff in Aus is overpriced.

So much it isn't funny. In a lot of cases its cheaper to buy from BH Photo Video than Digidirect (the cheapest non grey-importer in sydney) That includes shipping and 10% GST, you don't have an australian warranty then, but all L lenses have an international warranty so its not much of an issue.

To give the Americans an Idea, the retail price of a 5D Mark II with 24-105F/4 is about $5100, thats about $4672 USD when 1 USD = 1.09158 AUD.

compare that to BH's price, $3500 USD.

Fk off Canon Australia, you ain't getting my cash anytime soon.

I'd do the same but Nikon's International warranty specifically states that you must have a valid reason for buying something from America... Looks like it's greys with 3rd party warranty!

Speaking of which, given that the 70-300 4.5-5.6 VR is $700 and the Sigma 70-200 2.8 is $850, which one would you prefer? The things going for the Nikon are VR and lightness, I really won't lug the Sigma along to a holiday. I do shoot concerts informally and I like birdies. If I do get the Sigma I'll get the 2x & 1.4x TC as all. Hm maybe I should start a thread lol

Yeah, yeah, cry me a river. Believe me, we know, we hear about it all the time from the other Aussies here, then I hear about it over at POTN and elsewhere (UK, Portugal, etc.). It's unfair.
