did someone say you can hav ethe 5Dmk2 modified to have a lockable mode dial?
Canon can modify the camera for you. In the USA I believe it is a $200 service fee.
Had a play with one today - looks like a replacement for the 1Ds3, seems to have all the functions plus a bit more. The only thing missing is the weatherproofing - looks like good value to me!!
Also had a play with the 200-400 lens. Rather on the large size!
Good points for DigitalRev and leederville. Bravo I didn't know about leederville but I hope they ship across the continent... How can they actually get the price so low and the others don't? This is making them good business and very soon mine too! I like the website of leederville.leederville do ship to major capitals. 1 thing with digital rev. I do rate them highly and service is great, super fast shipping and they have a good warranty. the issue is the cost to ship something back to hong kong it really isnt cheap. it might cost you $100 to send it back for warranty where as to send something like this within aus is only maybe $15 plus if you purchase from leederville its an aus warranty which any canon service dealer will honour within australia.
Any means to get the import product prices to match the strong Aussie are good means. We don't have the dollar at 40 UScents any more! And AFAIK Australia does not produce DSLR... Why do we have to pay GST at all - in New Zealand car imports are GST free because the country doesn't have any car industry.
*yes the internet prices like B&H or DWI may be slightly cheaper but you will get hit with import Taxes and GST due to it being over $1000 don't forget.
I've been thinking of hibernating untill all the excitement over the 5D MK III dies down.
