    Thumbs up Decent deals on the A100 w/ 18-200

    Okay,

    I been a customer of CDW for many, many years. They also carry the SONY A100 "system" and can effectively get everything that SONY is releasing for it ... and the new bodies, too.

    Deals: Deals fluctuate, so I won't be held to this, but after a discussion, this afternoon (4/12/2007), you can get the SONY A100H w/ the DT18-200 lens for ... $999.

    Now, that is good deal for this combination (CDW # 1180094). Restrictions are that you can only return a DSLR to CDW if it is defective. They are good about returns, but it has to be "straight up."

    If you insist on the standard SONY A100K kit (that is the DT18-70mm kit lens), that price currently stands at $749 (CDW # 994856)

    Need one? Call "Harrison" @ 1-877-495-7176 and tell him I referred you ... to get my corporate price break. It's a good deal with good people. I figure I'd share this with all of you. This is one of the few places you can go and not worry about whether or not your purchase will arrive. Even that is worth something.

    GET THE SHOT!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    A deal worth noting ...

    Well, it took some time to get this lined-up, but if some people get a break, more power to 'em. Even I didn't get to enjoy this deal. I paid MSRP the first day it was available, here in Chicago, back in July 2006. I had a coupon for items at 10%-off, so I did get some relief, but nothing this good.

    I am hoping I can do better when I upgrade to the A10 body.

    Enjoy this deal if you haven't, yet. This is a cool and effective camera.

    Amazon.com also has the A100 kit with the 18-200 for $988, sold by Amazon therefore free shipping. CDW no doubt has better customer service, but I'm pretty confident Amazon isn't going to screw me over. Plus I've got a $100 gift card for Amazon that I've been trying to use. I think I might finally pull the trigger.

    Be careful what you buy, the A100K(18-70mm) and the A100H(18-200mm) are enormously different. Both are effectively kits.

    Question Anyone gone for this deal?

    I was wondering if anyone had gone with the A100 18-200mm package?

    You never seem to hear back about these.
