Canon and Nikon DSLR dream sets by Yodobashi

While browsing DigitalCamera.jp, we also saw another interesting thing, Yodobashi (retailer) is offering some specially discounted "dream sets" of two sought after DSLRs, the Nikon D300 and the Canon 1D Mark III. Links are computer-translated with Altavista.

The most exciting of all those sets includes the Nikon D300, 5 lenses and a teleconverter for the combined "bargain" price of 1.5 million yen. The discount for this set is of the quarter million yen magnitude.

Canon's top dream set is at the same price and but with a bigger discount (a third of a million yen), and it includes the 1D Mark III, three lenses and two extenders. Extenders? I mean teleconverters! I am starting to think in computer-translated terms :-)

Assuming these can remain in-stock, is there enough time to book a flight to Japan, buy them, and come back, and still save some money? :)
