    Question Buy from CP or AP?

    finally decided on canon a70 (hope i dun bloody change me mind again..)

    but not sure where to get from..
    cathay (peninsula plaza br) or allan photo...

    both have lowerpro bags rite?
    and wat's a decent tripod? slik u6600?
    is a uv filter necessary?

    should be able to get some discounts from both shops rite?
    and does the price diff if i go to CP marina sq or peninsula plaza br?
    D700 / 14-24 f2.8 / 24-70 f2.8
    D80 / 17-50 f2.8 / 70-300 f3.5-5.6 / 80-200 f2.8

    Cp would be fine. I duno, maybe Im biased.

    I dun think a UV filter is necessary. I have the lens adapter and the UV filter, but after several weeks, I just take the camera out. I like to shoot using the viewfinder, and I dont like the lens adapter to block.
    Just my 2 cents

    A UV filter can protect your lens, which I feel is the most important part of your camera. I think it's worth spending some money for protection

    Both CP branches will offer different prices, as it depends on who you talk to and how you bargain

    Maybe u wan to get equote from CP and AP first, then decide?
    Or just call CP for phone quotes, last time canon A70 is 510SGD inclusive of GST in Cp via phone quotes.

    If u have patience, try MSCOLRO, heard with 530SGD they have some freebies.

    MSCOLOR - $530 bundled with tripod and case.

    The last e-quote i received from CP is $490 w/o 4% GST.

    I bought mine from AP @ $518 - no freebies. The salesperson who served me quoted $500 w/ GST. Most probably a regular customer.

    wat kind of freebies?
    originally wanted to go for the nikon 3100 with the bundled freebies
    but in the end, nah... dun think most of it is really useful ....


    CP quoted me
    $490 for a70
    $108 for 256mb cf card (...kinda ex?..)
    $42 for slik u6600
    $9 for lowerpro z20 (is this a good casing for da camera?)

    on the end hand,
    the coolpix sq is looking real tempting..
    haha....
    haiz..

    i din ask for the brand of the tripod and case. btw, it is a mini tripod.

    "regular customer" as in frequent consumers of the shop.
