    Congrats, I wouldn't be able to wait if I was you. How long are you going to have to wait?

    It's funny Nikon can't cope with the demand, giving that D70s is highly popular as well...

    Amazon says that the delivery is expected on 22th of September. And my uncle returns on 28th... It IS hard to wait. And if my uncle misses it, I will have to wait even longer.

    Here's how we did it. I asked my uncle if it was ok if we paid for it from Turkey and have it sent to him. He said that he is returning on 28th and that there was a chance of he missing the package. So he proposed that we send the package to his student who will return in October in case something goes awry. I can only hope that I will have my D200 with my uncle :) My sister's waiting her iPod nano, she's exicited as well. Nowhere near me though :D

    Congrats, that camera rocks. I had a chance to play with a friend's a few weeks back, and was really impressed with it.

    hi there, the 18-200mm VR lens is now available on amazon.com, thought I'd let you know. It's price is high for my opinion, it lists at $1150...

    Don't bother. At least I would not. I purchased mine from Roberts Imaging for $669, the original price. It's currently $699, but a $30 premium is still decent whereas a $481 premium is simply indecent. Be prepared to wait a few weeks, but I happily did just that.

    I already have it :D bought it coupled with my D200.

    Before it became available again on amazon.com it was listing at $799, and I believe those who have ordered it then have paid that much but no matter what, a 300 dollar price jump is way too much

    It's gratifying in a self-serving way to see the price go up after one has already purchased it. This is also known as an investment. ;)

    I bought my D200 in May and received it in July. The prices went down twice since then, once end of July and once just after the D80 announcement. As much as it feels good when prices go up after a purchase, it feels as bad when prices keep going down after purchase. :(

    Nonetheless, the camera is beautiful both build-wise and all else. It was a major step up for me from my D70s, but it's a great learning process!

    Congrats on the order!

    I would like this for any Zeiss lenses (ZF lenses) but the Panny L1 looks more awesome. Yeah! Da!
