Greetings from Indy where we are nervously holding our breath hoping for the nod on the Super Bowl…keep a good thought for us and perhaps we will get to host a bunch of Sports Shooters here in Indy…We look forward to seeing many of you who are coming in for The 500….

Super news from Canon: An INSTANT REBATE program…that's right, no mailing…lots of savings on lots of lenses…Check it out: The new 580EX II is in stock and the new rocking 16-35/2.8 II lenses are coming in fairly regularly. The Mark III started shipping but the quantities are still unknown so delivery may be spotty.

It is official: Roberts Distributors is now an authorized Apple dealer and looking forward to helping you with your computer needs.

Lexar has just dropped prices but I am not suppose to publish the pricing so please contact us and we will fill you in…very aggressive…plus rebates on many of the pro cards…click here to see rebates:

…oh yeah, almost forgot, the 300X cards should start arriving the week of May 21st!

We have added a new feature to our web site: "the refurb page". It should be ready to go by the time issue 101 hits the cyber world so check it out:
