Australian store leaks new Nikon D600 camera
Nikon announces the D600 digital SLR

Melbourne- and Sydney-based camera retailer Vanbar Imaging has confirmed what it says is "firm pricing" for the D600, with its Web store quoting a $2,574 figure for the D600 body. A kit with the newly-announced 24-85mm f3.5-4.5 lens is $3263.70. A Vanbar representative told PC World the store was expecting high demand for the camera.

Vanbar will hold a hands-on afternoon/night session with the Nikon D600 on September 20th at its Fitzroy store in Melbourne. A Nikon representative will be on hand to demonstrate the D600's features from around 3PM that day.

Michaels Camera has also confirmed its price for the D600 via Twitter, telling CNET's Lexy Savvides that they had pegged the camera's price at $2599 for the body, noting that the price made it the most affordable full-frame DSLR on the market. They also posted a photo of them playing with a D600.

Michaels responded to a Twitter user's comment that the same camera was $500 less in the US by saying that "regarding the price difference, after accounting for GST and freight charges the price difference is negligible."

And discount online retailer Ryda hasn't yet updated its $2699 pricing for the D600 body. Ryda leaked information on the camera's features and price before the official announcement from Nikon.

Photocontinental has posted an extremely low price for the Nikon D600 on its online store - $2399 for the body only. The site says the camera is out of stock and potential buyers should call to check potential availability.

Teds Camera has the D600 listed for $2699.95 for body only, and $3499.95 for the D600 with bundled 24-85mm kit lens.

We'll update this article with more Australian pricing from major retailers and camera stores as it becomes available.

It's a bit rich for Michaels to try justifying high Australian pricing when simple math tells us even the US has to pay for freight from Japan - and GST is less than $ 220.
I baught my D800E from Hong Kong with FREE shipping and saved a bundle.
This is not just on cameras, many products (some made in Australia) are cheaper in New Zealand even with NZ's 15% GST.
So c'mon Aussie retailers, why are you doing this to Australians?
These are tough times - do your part.

Photo Continental have told me they are expecting stock on Tuesday 18th Sept. Fingers crossed.

Just another camera nut

"Nice" prices - considering the US price for the body is $2000 only. Again we aussies get a kick in the guts...

Re ... Michael's response to the price query:

A five hundred dollar price difference is hardly negligible! Explain to me how the Fuji X100 came into Australia with a lower retail than in the US?

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
