    That Bally sells bags and shoes. It is another piranha shop

    Having seen a friend purchase an item(EF 28mm f1.8) at Bally without getting scammed... I have a few words of advice

    Make sure you know the price of the item well before even stepping into the shop. There is also no reason to patronise them unless they're the only shop that stocks the item.

    Not surprise given people buy second hand cameras at recommended retail price for a new set and 3 year old digital cameras are selling at with only one third depreciation. A phenomenon that defies the principles of economics and accounting.

    why man why? the usual suspect again...why...so many ppl post online and give review of shops..why...why...why so many carrots only complain here after buying? but they don't know see here before buying? why...280 can buy extreme 4 with change...280? i bought a 32gb at AP for 225 or even cathay at 230....even song bros sell 16gb at 159 which is cheaper than this and is alr consider expensive.....

    Go in a group if you want to make any demand. Be prepared to end up with a broken elbow when they force you out of their shop and called their security.

    To mess with them, you have to bring the right guys and a few cameras snapping and video taping from behind. You wont know what they are capable as they can even toss your CF card out of the door and said you trespass.

    This is just my opinion, but if you have a built of Arnold or Rambo, then go in peace and kick their dumb as.

    I bought it in a mad rush, did not do proper research, don't event know the current market price. Big mistake on my part, i must admit.

    Anyway, I have confronted the shop asking if they have made a mistake in their pricing. They insisted their price is correct, even though I told them other shops are selling at just around $125.

    I don't think I can ever recover anything since I have agreed to the quoted price by purchasing it.

    Just want to share this experience so that all can benefit from it.

    Ahem ... Funan center is no tourist spot, Funan's main customers are mostly locals. On the hand, you can see more tourists go to SLS, which is happen to be more "famous" too.
