Your camera salesman is your “friend”?
Real genuine friend
Only if you buy from him regularly
Money talks: don’t mind paying more for friendship & "status"
Don’t mind paying more for good service & advice
If I don’t buy from him, I feel “off”
If I don’t buy from him, he will give sarcastic remark next time
No such thing as “friend” when money is involved
Only buy at the lowest quote regardless of which equipment
Only buy at lowest quote for simple items / accessories.
Only buy from “reliable” shop at reasonable quote
