Catchlight from the sun Ken, the lens was probably about 25 - 30 yards away - but she's looking at me alright, I reckon I disturbed the end of her meal when crossing the river and entering the field.

That froggy's courting days are over, that's for sure.

Love the way the bird's eye seems to be looking at the camera. Possibly a glint off the lens?

Good question Paul. Most of the internet dealers stick to the price you see in their online shops. They often donít have anywhere where you can meet them face to face, only having a distribution network.
As a rule of thumb the high street multiple dealers donít have authority to alter price, so a deal is doubtful.

Some of the chains advertise an `on-line price` special. If you go into the branch you get quoted their normal book price which is higher so it pays to point out the difference. I did this recently and the salesman used the shop computer to log on as me and placed the order for me to pay and collect at the branch.

There are still a number of small independents who although they donít have the purchasing power of the larger chains the will do deals if they think you are not wasting their time. If they canít match the price they will sometimes do very good deals on accessories which you would have brought anyway, usually at full price. Think big picture.

There are some on-line dealers who are based overseas and post some huge savings. Often the price is low because there is no VAT or import duty quoted. The item is sometimes not covered by the UK dealer/supplier guarantee network. Make sure you know the final delivered to your door price.
There are a few overseas dealers who supply from UK sources. They say their quoted price is the price you pay. They also say that any problems/repairs are handled in the UK. They donít say if the products are `Grey Imports`

If you are in a hurry you will probably cost yourself money. Take your time and shop around. I am fortunate that I live close to the capital and can shop in Tottenham Court Road, which is full of independents who will do a deal. Cash works, wave it under their nose and make it clear that you will do a deal today if they can come up with a price or near what you have in mind. Also donít forget the accessories such as a memory card. Big margins on this type of accessory so they can do a big discount.

Such is life, was thinking of starting a thread in the non carp section for topics like; camera tips and tricks, image processing and the like as a lot of people are asking questions in all kind of threads. Information is key and that's what a forum is about. As long as it is in the right place and does not offend the powers that be.
Not sure about the Nikon I will get back to you
