This is a special edition of the Weekend Shopper, with the Labor Day weekend just around the corner! And the retailers are going on the attack with some tempting temptations.
We start with J&R World, where we have these hot specials, good until September 1st:
- Canon 40D body only, for $950. List of reviews.
- Panasonic LX3s pre-order for $400 - down $100 from standard pre-order price. List of reviews.
- UPDATE! The LX3K (black finish) is now available at $400 as well, both in pre-order status.
- Sony T300 black down to $300, after the announcements of the T700, T500 and T77.
- If you love the Samsung style and user interface but don't want to commit/risk more than $150 to it, there is a compromise: The Samsung NV15 for $130
More and more reputable online retailers are making the 50D and D90 available for pre-ordering. Be sure to check them all out in the 50D vs D90 pre-order wars. One interesting thing to note is that Amazon had briefly listed a 3rd Canon 50D kit, the 50D with the new 18-200 IS EF-S lens for $1700, but as of earlier today that kit has disappeared and its page returns a 404. We saved the ASIN for reference in the pre-order page.
More specials we as find them or as they find us. And remember your purchases through this post/blog, and the Noisy Mall is what supports this blog.
