    yes, I think most of us need to re-look at our own basic shooting technique and spend more time perfecting this skill all over again.

    as for AD, perhaps the file size is way too big. hurhurhur well i can't be sure as i do not know their shooting style.

    if it is me, definitely way too big as I diedie shoot only in RAW.

    Precisely why I said "long haul" as I don't see that happening over the next few months...

    As for which is a better body? Depends on individual needs/wants.

    D700 - 3000
    D800 - 4400

    The above example applies only to local context. Yes, D700 can be obtain below 3k, but not locally.

    Even so, if you use local context, 1.4K is still a great difference... you can toss in a brand new SB910 + 85/1.8G and maybe squeeze in a 50/1.8G with a bit of top up .... something worth thinking about. If the difference is like 700-800, I'm sure a great number wouldn't mind just take the D800, but it isn't... Each to his/her own I guess. Much like why D90 is still selling despite being "overtaken" by D7000 - this, coming from one of the reputable shops.

    2.5K hahaha! Daredevil123, you have opened a can of worms... I do believe a number of peeps have gotten at that price or slightly higher... but still way cheaper than 3K... N-E-W

    Sorry folks, not locally of course... Although we hope it will come down to that price SOONER...

    This when the D700 was at its lowest price almost a year ago. Price for D700 has since gone up to around 2.7k and even at this price, almost the entire MY is out of stock of the D700. Good luck finding one.

    Out of stock nowadays. Usually each shop carries two or three sets back in the day.

    Well... JB is practically just a city next door... If you're in the USA...that's just a simple 3hr cross border trip to the neighbouring state (reachable by public transport not including taxi).

    Like if you're staying in Changi Village wanting to buy a used camera from a guy living in Jurong West... Surely you don't need to buy even a BUDGET plane ticket (parachute needed) or stay in Jurong at least for one night for that simple task right?

    "Locally" is a pretty subjective term in my opinion... As long as you don't need to swim for even one km... it's local enough for me... hehehe.

    Anyway, that's just FYI only, if you want to stay strictly in-country... perfectly okay man, we just have to wait long long when the prices do come down.

    And ahem... if you prefer to buy the cheapest budget air ticket + 1 night stay in HK just to get 70-200 VRII... also up to you lah!

    P/S: what I'm trying to say is... I won't.

    PPS: anyway, it is still moot to discuss sub 3K pricings at this moment, not until you can get actual stocks in JB at the moment. So, no choice - one is still left with 3K option locally.

    if u're always goin to HK, then yes, it is to your advantage.

    Agree... if always going HK regularly, then it's worth it! Not for those who doesn't.
