    Where to buy a 7D in Melbourne?

    Please move if this is in the wrong place or delete if im breaching any rules thanks mods

    I'm looking to buy a new Canon 7d (not gray) body only on Friday the 16th in Melbourne i will have around $2000 to spend could stretch it another $200
    I would just buy from a Site Sponsor but i need it for that Saturday and will only have the money by Friday so its going to be a last minute rush down to Melbourne.
    So if anyone knows a good place that will have them in stock I would much appreciate your help
    Cheers

    Try price matching amongst the usual Elizabeth Street stores or to fit your existing budget both Vanbar and DCW come close for Canon Aus. stock.

    As others have said, elizabeth street is the place to head. Michaels camera house is the largest and I think your best bet for bargaining down prices would be the JB HIFI camera store at 261 elizabeth street. Don't be afraid to bargain with any of the stores there, they are all within 100m of each other and are aware that if they don't get your sale the chances are you will just walk next door and buy there.
    If you can make it really clear you are definately purchasing a camera that day it will help with how much you can get them down, again if they know you will be spending the cash that day regardless, they will try even harder to get your sale.

    I went to Elizabeth Street, Michaels and Ted's wouldn't price match, they said I was being offered camera and lens below market price.

    JB Hifi, Camera House and another one (can't remember the name) all gave me the price I wanted. I decided to go with camera house, I got the camera body for $2000 and the 15-85 IS lens for $1000.

    Harvey Norman was selling this combo for around $3700 at the time.

    we still have the 7D Canon Australia stock for $2060 if you don't mind having it delivered to your home rather then having to make your way down to the store..

    agree with everyone else Elizabeth st is the go, but use the phone to ring around the suggested stores and get the best price, then go to 'JB Hi-FI camera store' on Elizabeth and they will price match..
