Fall Specials from Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Hello to one and all from Indianapolis, home of the best team in football, who just can't win.

Top of the news is Canon's EOS 1-D is soon to be available and more and more people are shooting with the few samples that are roaming the countryside. I got to spend some time with one and they surely have a winner here.
Click above for Rob Galbraith's review.

Give me a call right away because the demand is going to be daunting. Also new from Canon is the 70-200IS which are coming in slowly, the 16-35 is not yet available, the 400/4 IS DO is not out yet, but everything else is in stock and ready to ship. I have special Sport Shooters pricing on all long glass through the end of the month. Oh yeah, don't forget that all the rebates are still in force.

Nikon is doing great on D-1X and D-1H inventories. Call us and I am confident we can hook you up. In addition to the digicams everything else is in good supply. Many of the Nikon items have mail-in rebates on them.

This month's deals on memory...coming your way.... Lexar 256/12x $259.00 with free FireWire reader Lexar 320/12x $369.00 with free FireWire reader Lexar 512/12x $509.00 with free FireWire reader Lexar has also announced a new line of 16X cards for December as well as a 1Gb/16x.

Sandisk Ultra, the new super fast cards from Sandisk;

I have some overstock on the Versaflex lens wraps, probably the best on the market, so I have marked them down a bunch.

Please keep us in mind for all of your Fuji Pictrographic supplies and printers. We have great prices and a super shipping record. In addition, the new 4000 II is beginning to ship. Click below for specs: peId=2&pagetype=CategoryContent

We are now stocking the fantastic DIGITAL CAMERA BATTERY line. Most everything is stock.

Olympus has come out with a couple of great digicams for the professional for both business and personal use...the D-40 and the awesome E-20...check out these specs:

If they're not in stock now...they will be soon!

Dynalite is offering some real values with their rebate program on studio and portable kits.

On everyone's mind now a days is how are we going to get gear from here to there. I have tried to stock up on large shipping cases so we have what you need. Of course we always have the great Versaflex dual lens cases available with the long lens inserts and shipping covers.

Well now I'm exhausted...yes even typing has now started to wear down my sorry old butt.

We'll be talking to you soon and remember to always have fun!
