    Default Are stuffs from Orient Photo (Sim Lim Square) ok?

    Hi,

    noticed that some of the items (example camera lens) from Orient Photo is about more then $100 cheaper then elsewhere.

    Wonder if any of you bought from this shop?
    Is this shop so call "trustworthy"??

    Thanks.

    i think these items are "grey" i.e. only shop warranty or no warranty at all from authorized distributor.

    To the Threadstarter

    1. Please do a search before you post cos there are a number of threads concerning Orient Photo with a pretty good mixed of comments.

    2. This is also a wrong forum to post this it should be in the consumer forum not here. This is for General, Reviews, Tech Talk Share tips & tricks, techniques, general photography chat.

    As such I am closing this thread.
