December News From Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Hello Sports Shooters and greetings from Indy!

The big news is that the EOS-1D is in the country and everyone is beginning to see them in the workplace. I am confident we will be working through the list fairly quickly so give me a call and we will queue you up!!! In Canon lensesthe 70-200IS, 16mm - 35mm and the 400/4ISDO are also beginning to arrive. There are still great rebates to be had many Canon lenses and bodies.

Kudos to Nikonthe channels are opening on the D-1X and the D-1H and we are able to take care of everyone's needs. The scanner supply line is also much improved so order today! All the new series II glass is in stock. Super news from Nikonthe Coolpix 5000 (the professional point & shoot) is in and boy it is hot!!! BUT please be patient with usI am holding off shipping to our Sports Shooters subscribers because there is a firmware improvement already in the pipe and we would like to take care of it here so y'all don't have to. Give it a week or so and we will take care of everyone. Nikon's double rebates on some glass will run until the end of the year.

The Lexar deals to close the year out are:
- A few 512 SPECIALS at $299.00 are still left.
- I will have some 320/16x cards at blow out pricing.
- And I will be closing out the "OLD" 12x pro line of cards at special clearance prices.

We can handle all of your output needs with the full line of FUJI Pictrographic printers and media, complete stock on hand in Kodak die-sub media, and we are a full line EPSON tier one dealer. We offer many other inkjet lines including the fantastic Ilford Gallerie Classic Pearl that everyone is so crazy about.

I am stocking up heavy on the Versaflex Dual Lens Case due the increased demand caused by the airport security situation. Of course we carry lens kits for both manufacturers as well as some of Versaflex's other great products.

We are now partnering with the MacExperience to bring all of our valued clients the full range of Apple products. This a super group of people that are setting up house in our stores and have the technical know-how to get the job done. Oh yeah, iPODS are here and make a great Christmas gift.

More and more of our regulars are asking me about digital camcorders so I guess I need to get the word out. We have them, they fit in a pocket of your bag, they have great resolution and they are on special sale through the end of the month.

Well that's enough except to say that Ed, Christy, Jeff, Bruce and I, along with the entire staff at Roberts, would like to wish you all a very happy New Year and the best of luck for a prosperous 2002.
