    I just came back from the Courts Megastore @ Tampines 2 hours ago, and I checked the prices for the bodies / lenses sold.

    Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II @ S$160, instead of the usual S$110 - S$130.
    Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L @ S$1700, instead of the usual S$1000 - S$1100.
    Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L @ S$1400+, instead of the usual S$1100 - S$1200.

    People who buy from there are either dumb, or have just got into photography and couldn't be bothered to do their homework price research.
    Courts sells at Canon retail price, which is higher than the street price offered by J3:16 or Cathay.

    You may want to consider the Olympus, Pentax and Sony cams too... Great cameras at good prices.

    As mentioned so many times already... GO try the cameras out. Handle then and see which you favour. Then make a smart read-up on the whole system. Flash, lenses, etc...
