I don't know where they can hide a fee if I can see the amount of dollars that come out of my account.
On Oct. 1 the mid-rate didn't go below around 3.535. The rate DanH got is about 1/2% lower. (Still a good deal though.) On the screen they showed you the amount in $ or ש"ח?

Oct 1 was a Sunday.  There's no real market on Sunday.  The rate we got was the rate Visa (or MC) was giving at the time.  It always lags the market.  Sometimes that's to your advantage, sometimes to your disadvantage. In any case, no fee here.

Onscreen I selected an amount of shekel and no amount was showed subsequently.

Was at Leumi this afternoon, this time used a diferent machine (the one further in, so if you're facing the wall on the right immediately after walking in, its the left machine), and I was prompted to choose to pay in shekels vs use conversion. Another difference between this time and last time, last time i used one of the amounts they suggest (iirc 200 or 400), this time i chose the "choose amount" option.

USD not possible AFAIK.  ILS, rate is fixed by Visa/MC so any bank ATM should be the same.  At Leumi be aware of the option to be charged in USD, it's a rip off.  Select to be charged in shekels if that choice comes up.
