A quick check shows that Aden Camera has it for $1139.

I bought mine several months ago from Henrys Ebay store, new for just over $1000 with full warranty etc. They don't have any right now but it's worth watching there.

Once you get the camera make sure to upgrade the firmware to v.4!

Thanks! I'll check out Aden.
That's a really good deal! Just over $1000 tax in or no?
I think its around that price in the US now but of course its not canadian warranty which sucks.
Btw, what's new in the new firmware besides bracketing at 2.0EV instead of just 0.7EV?

Huge improvements (I mean huge) in noise reduction. RAW noise reduction looks tons better. I'll let selpats tell you the story.

You'll love the A700, I love mine.
Deal with it.

KorruptioN got it right, just search at DPR, Dyxum etc and you will see...

The new firmware will be officially released on Sept. 16th. I upgraded when it was leaked and it works well...
