Nikon - We are now accepting orders for several new Nikon products including the much anticipated D1 Digital Camera due out in September. We also are taking orders on the new Nikon AFS 17-35mm/2.8 and 85mm/2.8 PC Micro lenses. We will fill orders on a first come first served basis.

Canon - We are now taking orders on the four exciting new Image Stabilized Lenses. The lenses are as follows: EF300mm/2.8 IS, EF400mm/2.8 IS, EF500mm/4.0 IS and EF600mm/4.0 IS. All of these lenses are sharper, faster focusing, and lighter than their predecessors. They also feature weather-resistant seals. Delivery on the 300 and 500 is expected to start August/September. The 400 and 600 will follow in October/November. As an added incentive to purchase one of these lenses from Roberts, we will allow Sports Shooter readers to buy a Canon EOS-3 body for $1199.00 at the same time. Limit one body for each long lens purchase. This offer will expire on 12/31/99. Camera body and IS lens must be purchased together to qualify. Please call 800-726-5544 with any questions.
