Does anyone know of any place in the UK that mght have an excess of D60's? I've tried several places but it's buy to order and Canon are being very slow at shipping them out. Looking at the prices of the North American D60's it might be cheaper to cross the atlantic, buy the camera and then spend a day or two using it before coming back!

Not sure of any dealers that have them but if you import your own model then make sure that a warranty is still valid in the UK.

Well 737heavy that sounds like a plan. Go for it! But that might cost just a bit more than you plan.  Smile

UK supplies will be tight through April - my local LCE has orders for 27, received 6, and doesn't expect another batch until end of month. I'm not sure US situation is much better - don't expect to fly to New York and find one sitting on the shelf!

Regarding tax/warranty issues, you might be better looking for an EU supplier.

Cheers,

Colin

Thanks guys. I know an EU one would be better. I'm currently testing a D30 but I'd like to test the D60 if I can get better shots. I've found the shutter release a bit slow, as expected, and the white balance sucks and so I'd like to get my hands on a D60. I've been dealing with Jessops and they have orders for 115 but only have 40 in the country and don't know when the rest are going to arrive.

I did find a place in Germany but the website didn't tell you if they had them in stock but they were over £200 cheaper even after p&p.
