Canon 60Da: When will it arrive?

Hi guys,

It's now May and still no sign of this talked-up model.

Anyone got any idea when this camera will arrive and how much?

cheers,

James

Just the crap I've been thru tyring to get one thru the local dealer.
It's a long story, and only relates to the local dealer here in Perth. I will not be purchasing anything from them in future... hopeless.

The search function has turned up the following:

I'm guessing the weather is muck in most places(it has been here) hence the lack of pics to date.

Price in oz seems to be $1639, ordered thru any decent stockist.

I was in Photo Continental (Brisbane) yesterday (Thurs 3rd May) and had a chat with one of the sales guys who had a 60Da in his hand, comparing some available light in-store shots between the 60Da, 5DMkII and the canon 60D.

I didn’t ask if they had stock as I am not interested in the 60Da, although I did spot a couple of boxes on the shelf with 60Da emblazoned on the side.

Cheers

Dennis

Ted's Camera store at Maroochydore called me pm Thursday April 19 to advise the 60da was in the store. I picked it up on Friday morning, whizzed out to Leyburn with my mate Dennis for the weekend, set up the camera thru the scope, took 15 minutes of images and the laptop went rsup! Haven't been able to use it again due to the weather but next week looks good. Ted's price (for anyone interested) was $1599 and the service was great.
