model answer:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to request information from you about your new Nikon D5200 digital camera that I saw advertised on television last night, 8 February.

First of all, I would like to know exactly how much the Nikon D5200 costs. It would also be useful if you could tell me where I can buy it, and when exactly it will be on sale. In addition, I need to know the LCD screen size and resolution: is the screen larger than 3 inches wide, for example? I enjoy new technology very much, so I am hopeful that your new product is going to have some feature that will set it apart from all the other cameras on the market.

I would be very grateful if you could send me some more information about the new model, the Nikon D5200, at your earliest convenience.

Yours faithfully
Janet Jenkins
