    that is correct, but only the driver have ever driven low end cars before than he will able to appreciate all the positives experiences that a luxury car can gives him.


    btw, there is noting wrong to drive a big luxury car and don't know how to do parallel parking, in fact, it is really entertaining and lighten our day when we happen to see ones doing parallel parking.

    ya lor.
    life is short. Dont worry too much. Feel like upgrading, just upgrade. Dont die regretting that you hv never hold a D4 or 1Dx or what hv you.
    Anyway, can both enjoy the hardware and learn the "software" at the same time what. Right? there is no rule saying that we must be a "Photographer" first before we can hold high end camera. Even if you really can't get the "software" right, also nevermind. Just enjoy the photo "taking" and dont worry about the photo "making". LOL

    There's no 'ideal' store, but there are many established camera stores that you could patronise, such as TKFoto, Cathay Photo, SLR Revolution and John 3:16 to name a few. If you are looking for the cheapest quote, you may have to drop by Funan to visit them or call them as the prices do change over time.

    Anything that I must pay attention to beside the price? My budget is around 10K. What is the best combination of len. Can I use it with a Carl Zeiss len. Grateful for any advise.

    Probably a D600, but will wait for Nikon ti fix the dust/oil issue first.

    There is no best combination or best lens - it depends on what your needs are. Do you need the fast fps and the high ISO capabilities of the D4? Do you need the massive resolution of the D800/E series? Do you desire the pinnacle in sharpness and resolution? Are you hitting a wall with your current gear?

    I am going for sharpness for event and landscape. My D300 is not idea for low light without flash. I edit most of my shot in Photoshop Cs5. I was told that the Carl Zeiss len is on manual mode for D4 so it will not be ideal for event shooting. Thanks for your input.

    To TS, the best time to upgrade is when you have clocked 100k shutter count on your current camera. That's when people really begin to understand photography.

    I changed my mind, I better get a D7100 instead.

    I went down to Cathay and got my D4 yesterday. Understand most of the gadget and uses, probably need to learn another 10 or more percent. Wondering whether there are class that conduct the D4 features.
