    Thanks a lot in advance.
    dino, u can call CP or AP or MSColor and u'll get the prices in a jiffy. Just make sure u ask who u are speaking to so that u can quote his name when u make the purchase to get the price he quoted.

    The time you are serious about photography
    is when you know you want:

    1) a wider lens with the approx lens hood
    2) a longer focal length for your telephotos
    3) an extension tube
    4) adaptors for filters
    5) want more specialized filters such as gradual filters
    6) a more solid sturdy tripod with sufficient height
    7) a powerful external flash unit
    8) lenses with larger aperture
    9) constance aperture zoom lenses
    10) a better and larger camera bag

    The list can go on....

    When you don't want to learn the ropes you will end
    up no where. Buying and then selling away your gear
    cost you dollars, and sometimes you have to bear the
    pain.

    Here are some suggestions (just my personal opinion)

    1. Get used gear such as the Nikon 601, 801, Yashica FX3,
    Braun 2000, Minolta X-700, Minota SRT101, Pentax Spotmatic I
    or II, Practika MTL-50, Canon AE-1, Canon FTB, and others.

    2. For $600 you can have a decent tripod such as the
    Manfrotto 190Pro or the Slik 400 to go with it.

    3. For real bargain there is an excellent starter set from Braun:
    The Braun 200 with 28-70mm, 70-300mm, a flash unit, and
    even a camera bag to go with it. The whole set is less than
    S$480.

    The Braun has Depth of Field preview, rugged body construction
    and very suitable for those who wants a good SLR set to learn
    photography, yet do not have the budget to spend more.

    You can source for the above items at your usual
    photography retails such as those in Peninsula Plaza and
    at Ang Mo Kio Central.

    ______________________________________
    It surprised me why newbies spend money
    getting digital cameras hoping to learn photography,
    later going back to a solid film based SLR without
    regret. However some unique oldies who hates
    the bulky SLR turn to the Lomo instead.

    Heh, yes, just being corrected by Que, it's a TTL optical viewfinder.
