    You are right!

    They were in Singapore ... from 1968 to 1978... I think or something like that!

    BTW, would like to guess why they decided to leave Singapore?

    Apparently, I only have two lens so.

    But, I reckon the best out of the two will be 50mm f1.8. Sharp and not expensive.

    Yes, I know a few friends who used to work for them. Two of them own camera shops around Peninsular area.

    Now, do you know that some Leica products are made in Singapore?

    No need to go for course. Just cut-down on caffeinated drinks such as coffee and coke, etc, plus plenty of undisturbed sleep.

    In addition, exercise regularly (I am guilty of not doing enough of this), practice yoga and you are good to go.

    Among all the lenses I bought n owned (some sold)...
    The most favourite lens is EF 70-200 F4 IS L USM...
    Light weight, contrast, IQ & weather sealed...
    One of the sharpest zoom lens I had ever used. Comparable to prime lens... Perfect !!!
    Although I have other zoom lenses which covered the focal length of the 70-200, I still keep the lens coz it's just too valuable to be sold !

    It appear that 70-200F4L IS is a very popular lens...

    I am adding 10-22mm to my collection soon.. OK or NOK?

    70-200F4L IS is cheap and good!

    10-22mm is good if you don't intend to upgrade to FF in future. Otherwise, you should consider the highly rated Sigma 12-24!

    Have one 10-22 too...nice for travel... Capture everything you see (wide angle)

    I do a lot of event coverages(part time and FOC) and 17-85 serves me well.

    Now seldom touch my 15-30mm. It used to be my favourite.
