    better time to grab product now isnt it if everyone giving discount to bring up their economy??

    just personal opinion...

    that will depend on wad i intended to buy. for photographic items, they are put on hold. i can do without new gears i may end up under-utilizing them. for other things that periodically needs replacement, a good discount will surely entice me to check out the offers.

    economy gone up last year BUT the GST has also gone up. Most products are expensive because economy is up up up. I have cut my buy buy buy.

    economy going down now and maybe next year, BUT price of lens and body have come down for some brands. So I will be buy buy buy soon.

    Unless your job belongs to the iron bowl type. Economy down will affect the rest cos you might be lay off anything.

    Last I heard, minister is expecting 10,000 to be lay off. Hope you are not one of them.
