    cam equipment about 10-20% cheaper.
    you can get stuff from Ebay, photo.net, FM, KEH, BH, Adorma...
    always always cheaper than spore.
    however accessories such as filter and whatnot.. depends
    what is your source amigo?

    as far as i know, some ebusiness sales/online dont need to pay tax.
    bookstores dont have to... but bigger companies like Dell, BB or Circuit city.. maybe you might..
    then again, they dont sell cam stuff.
    be smart and do it in such a way that shipping is also free.
    usually cali requires tax. other places, its pretty much 0% tax.
    shiok. TX... need to pay online tax???
    btw are you a canon or nikon user?
    private sales are always always the best. no tax and much cheaper.
    but you know the deal is that you can never inspect your goods.
    its all about trust.

    hehehe I am a nikon user... I only buy online from reputable stores and only if i can get a significant savings. For small stuff like filers and stuff, its no practical to buy online cos shipping cost already more than sales tax. Otherwise i prefer to let local retailer make $$$ from me... let them stay in business... otherwise next time no more local retailer cannot see and touch before I buy...

    aiya.. to be very objective, canon equipment is alot more abundant here in USA.
    its flooind the market all the time.
    Try canon some day.
    in any case, check out
    www.photo.net
    that website has more nikon gear.
    you can also look at FM forums. reasonably alot of gear too.
    after you check out the prices, holla back and let me know what you think.

    WOW! new equipment.. well you have no choice but the retailers.
    but seriously, alot of used gear goes very good price.
    photo.net is not the best
    i like FM forums.

    you must bear in mind... ang mo buy gear all used unti llike wanna give way liao then sell... i always go camera shop look at used lens... so far(after 5 years) oni managed to find 1 zoom with reasonably good zoom and focus ring... if seller from sg i have more confidence..... cos singaporeans always protect their gear like if you touch the gear wrongly then whole thing will break open and also hor... singapore got too many gear collector.... so sg used gear better condition...
    anyways, used gear Nikonians got some nice gear at good prices... Unfortunately, now I pai ka.. .buy also cannot shoot...

    hye not true bro.
    of the 6 and some that i sold away as well as bodies transacted
    all very good condition. as described.
    only one lens i wasnt too happy about.

    you just have to read properly, ask a ton of qns.. i believe your experience wont be bad.
    coz it hasnt been for me.
    yo save alot of money this way. your one new lens can buy like 1.5 used lens.
    so 2 new means you prob can get 3 good used.

    why pai ka
