    They are all the same, my friend.

    Be it AP, CP, MS or any other shop(other than Best, Court, etc.) they are all "bargain shops". It is not that they are dishonest, it is just their nature of business: bargain!

    Ya this kind of places is about bargain and see they happy or not lor...

    well the best thing is to find out the price first... like that day i bought the suntax flash from MS they quote me 65 for it initially...I make a big 'huh' then say but I see it on the net that I could get for as low as 50... den he calculate then...give me 52... that's the way it is..

    dun like it either...but no choice leh...better than buying from those courts and whateva sometimes...more attitude!

    Same. I bought a 58mm SHMC (was thinking of getting the Zeiss Wcon) from AP for $28 a month back to use with my FZ-10. In the end, I settled for a 55mm step-down ring so I went to get the 55mm SHMC today.
    First quote I got was $40. Sheesh.. After that I asked him why the 55mm cost more than 58mm. The assistant was quite shocked. (I don't think I look like the typical tourist shops rip-off).
    Later he quoted $35 and asked me how much I was quoted for the 58mm.
    I told him i bought the 58mm SHMC for $28 and quoted same price for the U-HMC. He went to talk to another guy and in the end, I got the filter at $30.
