    Hahaha carrot cake. Lol walk in, look confident. Seems like you have a lot of knowledge about the cameras you are hunting for. Always catch them, don't let them feed you with wrong information.
    Cheap lenses are not good AND Good lenses are not cheap!

    Please note that HN will sell at RRP, not street price.

    No harm asking, but always ask & compare first then commit after you think thru

    i find Harvey Norman's way of dealing is a bit shady.

    they list one price but sell at another. everytime people go tell them "i go this this this shop, the price is like that.." then HN will pull down their prices and match their competitors.

    might as well just put up front a cheaper price, why need to go one big round then slash price?

    really leave people with little to desire for. i seriously hesitate to buy anything from them, unless i have no choice.

    MS Color.

    florence, if you need to know who attended to me.

    IMO, if you need to see who serve you at HN, that means they have no consistency in their sales. anyhow can cut price, give freebies. if you suay, kena those beh kan salesperson and you get a lousy deal, how ah?

    TK foto, MS Color and the likes still give me a peaceful-er mind.

    I still prefer TK, SLRR, MS and Cathay...so far so good. Never dealt with HN, cannot comment on their sales team.

    But for MS, go straight to the main branch and look for Florence. Got a couple of times when she is not around, the other sales people will quote me a higher price. *btw, if she's not around, go to the AMK hub branch, normally they quote me lesser than what the sales pple at the main branch give me -.- *

    e-quote e-quote e-quote, very important.

    even if she's not around, you can still get your stuffs with the price stated on the e-quote, that is if she even reply you with the e-quote in the first place. oh well.

    For pure newbie, if u ask me, I suggest go get a used proper dslr with kit lens. $600-$700 budget is good.

Compared all e-quotes from Ms color, CP, Alan P, Orient P and it show. Decided to buy.... Was tired and plus too excited so bought it. Think it's still ok deal right? I hestitated a little to be honest but was done in by my impulsiveness. Is the deal still ok frankly speaking?

    Free tripod and class 4 SD card is free one. Actually their promo is 2x class 4 8gb SD card. So far the tripod quite heavy. Not those very good kind but solid enough. Just use this to practice lo. I so noob give me expensive tripod also useless haha. Tried to change the tripod to other things... But he say cannot.

    Since buy already, then don't ask if it was worth it or not... no point. If it was cheaper, then good, if not, there really is nothing you could do

    Anyway, NEX-5N is an excellent camera, have fun shooting. Maybe one of these days, we can go and shoot some streets, eh?
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.
