Late Winter Specials From Roberts Distributors
By Jody Grober

Greetings from the North Pole…well it seems like the North Pole…Indianapolis has had an all time record snow season. And it looks like it is taking its toll on our boys…5 losses in a row!!!

Nikon should start shipping the new 70 - 200 very soon…and don't forget to take advantage of the rebates that run until March 31st…especially the big D-1H and D-1X rebates.

Canon is doing a great job on the supply channel for EOS-1D bodies. Plenty to be had by all. The EOS-1DS is coming in a bit slower but still trickling in. All the glass is in stock ready to go. The new digi-cam to replace the D-60 has been seen on various web sites but who knows what's real. Next week at PMA will tell…I will report all the news when I get back from the show.

Lightware has some great new stuff including a 1629 with wheels…but even better…you can purchase just the shell and fit it on your current 1629 tub…very smart. Check out the pictures on my pro newsletter next month.

Our congratulations to all of the Annual Sports Shooter Contest winners (especially the photogs that won stuff from me). Just a fantastic gallery of photos. Every year it is more and more a pleasure to sponsor such a great show of talent.

Hot news from Mamiya …y ou can now get a PocketWizard installed into your Nikon D series digital camera. It only costs $299.00 USD. Check it out:

AquaTech Sports Shields for camera/lens rain protection are spreading like wildfire. This is the ultimate in raingear for the professional. Triple layer protection, breathable yet water proof, utilizes an eyepiece, no Velcro attached to your gear, water proof flash and strap options, all seams double sealed…it is simply the cats meow!!

The Versa-Flex infamous Dual Lens Case will be in stock soon with wheels that come off and store in a compartment on the case. Very very slick. I will have photos soon!!
