I purchased a new Coolpix A as a birthday gift from my local camera shop for $399.00. I was told that the price was a 70% discount from retail. I smiled and signed the retreat. I assume that Nikon is replacing the camera with a new model. I was thrilled with the deal since I have always heard that it is a good camera. Since I shoot the other brand, I don't keep up with the latest news about Nikon. Did I make a good purchase, or just bought an out of date piece of equipment? Thanks in advance for the advice Jack.
