Go with the E65 then, the N95 battery probably wouldn't be enough to sustain that many calls per day, you'd probably see it dying near the end of the day.
The 2MP camera should be enough for a pic.

Ok, I'm going to buy an E65 next week. Reading on this site, I've found posts with people having issues with VOIP over Wifi with the Vodafone firmware on the E65 etc. Is there any reason I shouldn't save myself $100+ and buy one from the lowest pricespy outfit? Another benefit of buying one from someone else is that you're not limited to the "mocha" colour. The only thing I can think of is the hassle with warranty\repairs but from what I understand, Vodafone isn't great with this either.

You can pick an N95 up for around $950 on Trademe through some of the parallel importers there, or there is a store in Manukau that is likely to have a very good price on one (~$1100 I would think). Currently Cool Mobile has them for like $1089.

Its easily the best phone around that price point.

Oh, and whatever you do: do not buy it from Vodafone. There is just no reason not to save yourself the cash, the N95 (and presumably E65 and all the other new symbian nokias) just picks up all the network settings from your SIM - its very painless. Use the cash you save to buy a nice bluetooth keyboard, A2DP headset and a 6GB microSDHC card. . . Search here for some details on various accessories.

PriceSpy doesn't list Parallel imported phones, do they? I remember I used PriceSpy to find/compare my Imate JasJam and all IT Channels are $300 cheaper than Vodafone's Retail.

I'd suggest, try with IT channel and see if they can get Vodafone-distributed stock first, as they're cheaper, and is supported by NZ warranty (through your IT channel).
