    Default Cathay's eQuote

    Hi,

    Wonder what happened to Cathay's eQuote? I'm looking to buy a camera bag and the eQuote is as close as an online retailer in Singapore.

    Or are there any online retailer (in Singapore) where I can get a Lowepro Rover backpack?

    Thanks
    Matt

    Good day,

    It's no longer there... for whatever reasons. They do keep a good stock though.

    It is still there, just email them to request for equote.

    i always ask for eQuotes from them. Sometimes they reply.. well.. some other times they don't. They just lost a group buy of Fuji F11 from because they didn't reply my reqeust for equote.

    Not a big loss for such an established company. Only about $4K+ worth of transaction. Probably just a small blip on their sales record.

    Thanks guys. I emailed them yesterday and the response is very quick indeed. i'm surprised as I have emailed them several years ago and the email kinda got "lost" Maybe they are more tech savvy these days with the wave of digital cameras.

    The price of the Lowepro bag is really good, but the delivery charges are too steep; $80 to be precise. I ended up buying it on eBay.

    Heh heh ... they better be It's only in their interest to get someone to "monitor" the local photographic scene, especially when that someone makes himself/herself known rather than discreetly.

    I was posting some stuffs in rec.photo.equipment.35mm about B&H and lo and behold, Mr Henry Prosner came in for a chat.
