Well checked the rebate site today again just for the heck of it before I reported them with a form from the post office.. Loss and Riffing. The rebate is now posted and check issued April 19, 2005. Wow was sweating that 100 dollar loss. I sent it 12 weeks ago........ Long wait. Now all of a sudden it shows up. Guess they are really backed up and Nikon is doing a large business.
