Roberts Distributors Specials for January
By Jody Grober

Greeting to all from Indy and best wishes for the NEW YEAR!

The big news of the month is the D-1H and D-1X rebate program from NIKON. When I say BIG I mean it$500.00 instant rebate on each camera. On top of that they also have great rebates on lots of their best glass. Put it all together with Roberts and Nikontrade-in your old D-1 (that's right..we take them in on trade), get a new H or X with a $500.00 rebate and then get a great deal on glass!!!

From Canon come the slow but deliberate shipments of EOS-1D cameras. Please have patience we will get everyone taken care of as quickly as possible. We are also receiving 16-35 and 70-200IS lenses slowly but surely. I hope to have all of my orders for those 2 new lenses fulfilled by the end of the month so get your orders in now. Everything else from Canon is in stock including the NEW 400/4.0 IS DO. At 9.2"x 5" and only 4.3 pounds this baby is a winner. There is still a very healthy CANON rebate program in effect so it's a good time to GO CANON.

I'm not sure howbut I have received a bunch more of the Lexar 512 Mb special for only $299.00. I have many other Lexar close out specialcall us for details. I also have the new and very fast line of CF cards from Sandiskthe ULTRAs.

The new lowered prices on FUJI's Pictrographic printers have really been well received. What a great printer at an exceptional price. Of course we always have all the media and filters in stock.

A very hot personal item is the CANON ZR-20 DV camcorder. Many of you have been purchasing them for your personal/family use as well as business purposes. Currently our price is $499.00 (SPORTS SHOOTER SPECIAL), a great price for a lot of camera.

For the Olympics we have many great rolling backpacks and cases including the LowePro Roadrunner and the Tamrac 677 and 678. Naturally we have SPORTS SHOOTERS SPECIALS on all of them. Speaking of the Olympics you can count on Roberts for all of your last minute shipments. Be it film, equipment, rentals or digital gear, we will be geared up to go the extra distance.

Thanks again to one and all and make sure it's fun!!
