Finally decided after lots of research to just buck-up and get the best, Nikon Coolpix 990. Should satisfy for some time. Now, need a good deal. Any suggestions? Any coupons? Will re-post any findings to help others.
Thank You and continued power to "people for people!"
http://www.dealtime.com has excellent links to digital camera deals, but as I write this the site appears to be down. Try to get in - hopefully they'll come back up.
Also, if you haven't yet, check out prices from various resellers on http://www.cnet.com. The lowest price listed on cnet is $799. If you have Amex Blue, I'd suggest buying from a reputable dealer & then have Amex pricematch it to the $799 price.
