It seems that the Canon PowerShot A70 has had a significant price drop just in the last week. I am basing this observation on the fact that previously I had not seen this model in stores in Melbourne or advertised in local junk mail for below $575. However, in Thursday's Green Guide supplement in The Age for 20th November, I saw it advertised in three different stores for under $500. The best of which was $475. After holding off for a while, needless to say I snapped up one from Dick Smith Powerhouse at Knox with a price match. I guess this is due in part to the release of the A80 mentioned in other thread(s). For those particularly interested, the $475 price was at Centre Com, who have stores at Hawthorn, Sunshine, Elsternwick, Springvale and Bendigo. The Canon PowerShot A-Series Users Group Forums are very useful too. Seeya, nuxx.
