    Yeah, I know... and it might be a correct guess but since people are trying to identify who it is, there is still the possibility that there are guys with a D2X and 200mm lens in Singapore who may not be the one. I'd hazard to guess that in Singapore there'd be a much higher ratio of D2X owners (or DSLRs for that matter) to the general population than most other places - I've noticed a lot more gadget-mad guys who can afford the gadgets here in Singapore than anywhere else I've been.

    erm... silly question - event shooting with a D2x? a bit overkill, isn't it?

    unless of course this twit has a tiny weeney inferiority complex....

    Mmmmm come to think of it, maybe I'll do the same as in post #123 and tell the guy with a big ego " oh.... my staff is shooting there "

    Yep .. the store I frequent here already sold 80 units since the initial offering of D2x .
    Surely the shops in SG can sell more .. as I know a few ppl here buy it from there

    quite a wasted if you didn hammer him into e carpet.. man i would have to see it..

    did u check with your fren or e pp who hired you where this bugger popped out from?


    well i didn't want to do anything since it's a curch event, God might be watching afterall. I did ask, it seems he's just a fellow church goer, that's all... and the client assured me they didn't hire anyone else.
