Another question. What are your thoughts about buying a camera abroad?? For instance, if I went over to America and knew what camera I was going for, is it a good or bad idea to buy there. If I had a problem with the camera at home in Ireland, what kind of come back would I have. I know that 99.9% of the time, I wouldn't have a problem.
Strange I get to answer two questions in two minutes with the same info:
As I understand it one of the greatest advantages Nikon has over Canon is that their warranties are valid worldwide. Whilst Canon only allow you to have warranty repair in the country where you bought the camera (tight wads that they are).
So if you buy Nikon and you go on holiday and have a problem you can have the camera repaired there and then under warranty, you can also, as you said buy abroad because it's so much cheaper, greedy old Canon don't let you do that.
Having said all of that i've got Canon, and thus far, touch wood, haven't need a warranty repair anyway so it may not be that big an issue.
