I got mine from US... S3 IS + Sandisk Extreme II 2 GB card + 8 nos 2600 mAh batteries + Fast Charger... all for 15k's

In delhi you can have it in grey between 14-15k's.

A710 is also very good, but the S3 IS is better.

That's sweet... I am only waiting to know the price of E-P1 which is the pro body to be released this year. If E-P1 is too expensive then, E-510 is the way to go.

Hellcat,
Congrats on buying a fantastic camera..i am sure you will have fantastic time experimenting with it. Regarding lenses i would suggest you not to buy any lenses with wide zomm ranges(18-200, 18-300) as most often with cheap lenses like Tamron and Sigma sharpness of pic produced either near the 200mm end or the 18mm end will not be so great. stick to kit lens for portrait and buy a 80-200.
regards,
Shaz

@Samurai: The Olympus EP-1 sounds like a great camera.
Its going to compete with Canon 30D and the Nikon D200.
The areas where the EP-1 scores are, Live view with multi angel LCD and Dust reduction.
Looking at all these features I think it wont be priced below 2000$

If Olympus gets the IS system perfect like the Pentax and can do as good as Nikon/Pentax high ISO, then Oly will actually be the best cam.
