Availability Of The 10D Right Now In The States?

Fri Jun 27, 2003 6:29 pm

Topic says most of the story... How is Canon doing for delivery? Do any stores have stocks now (if not most of them??); if not how long is the delivery period right now?

Don't have an answer I'm afraid, but I've just been reading how Canon are producing 30,000 10Ds per month and still can't meet demand! I find that amazing - I wonder what percentage of these are actually being used in anger, and how many are purchased as a jewellry item  Smile.

And this with very little commercial marketing - why are so many people who would have considered $500 expensive for a camera 2 years ago willing to now spend 3 times that amount? I presume similar quantities of D100s are also being produced - where does all the money come from? Alternatively what products aren't being bought instead?

Cheers,

I wondered into an electronic shop across the street from my office and they said that if I buy it, it will be delivered the next day so i dont think availibility is a problem.

Getting all your lenses might be tougher.

Colin, who uses a camera in anger??? "Yo, if you take one more step near me, I swear to Christ I'll take a picture of you!!!" :-p

You'd be surprised how effective that can be  Smile And of course there's always the threat of dropping a lump of L glass on someones foot!

Personally I like the looks (leers) I get from some women at air shows. One even stroked my 100-400 with her finger tips saying, "My, what a nice lens you have..." Meanwhile my wife is standing next to me. Uhhhhh Uhhhhh Uhhhh,  Smile

On subject...on a whim I called a local dealer. They said they could have delivery in 5 days.  Smile

shouldn't that be Lears?  Smile. Guess I'm getting old, but anyone putting their fingertips on my lens will henceforward be known as "stumpy"!

Well I just phoned up Ritz camera in Santa Ana they have it in stock right now. I'm still debating whether or not to have it sent by mail here or not... I will definately buy my lenses in the states, but the body is either airmail or coming out of the store under my arm... However no one really knows until when the camera will still be in stock...
