    who cares as long as it create awareness ...
    let the admin and moderator deal with him hahaah

    as a buyer, i am only concern with the price
    good price with gst + local warranty is all I care

    bring measuring tape + tripod + laptop to shoot tethered
    make sure the lens no problem

    I am very interested to know how much they would sell a 5D Mark II.

    Was there to enquire about a dry cabinet. Very friendly stuff and price was cheaper than other shops in the Funan.

    If the shop can sell camera at a cheaper prices without the hassle of waiting which John 3:16 is famous for, I will recommend more people to go there.
    Think of concepts and work towards it.

    <路遙知马力,日久见心> Let's wait and see if the pricing will stay low after their business picks up. After all, new shops tends to differentiate themselves with lower price when they are the new kid on the block.

    My experience :

    Shop staff friendly. But price on bag quoted was about $10 more than shops in Peninsula. I nearly bought from them but was so glad I din cos I got a better deal opposite.
    I have a near-mint Olympus E-620 Underwater Case for Sale. PM me for a great deal!

    I believe the boss of this slr revolution is the same as balley's photo. Coz I remember seeing the staff of B in SLR when they are doing the renovation for SLR. Not too sure about their relationship.

    I not sure about others but personally one thing I feel about john is... they tend to recommend expensive filters to go along with your lens. Although I insisted on getting a cheaper one (i'm on tight budget), they claim that if I get the cheaper one, might as well dun get. Then they will try to convince u by letting u tryout the filters and see for urself. But when I say I just take the lens without filters, they will still try to convince u... Ya, true enough... the lens like mine deserve a better filter but sometimes I feel that they should just listen to customer's preference and decision... On 2nd thought, I'm starting to wonder if the decision i made is a wise one. Imagine a UWA lens + Kenko Pro1D CPL 77mm (for $170) when I could have gotten a cheaper Hoya HMC UV....

    sometimes i just paiseh to go into e shop while my intention just trying out the lens and quoting the price... coz if in the end i never buy, i afraid they might not care bout me when the next time i go there... encountered this before... that's why till now i only go inside the shop if i really want to buy items from it... if this shop is as friendly as u said, i should check it out...

    anyway, thanks for the info...

    if someone thing about this if u brought a expansive piece of grass esp a L len, why bother to put some cheapo piece of filler between your subject and the lens. Like that might as well buy a normal/kit lens. So if want to put on a filler, get a better one to compliment your expansive len, else it not do injustice to your good len. It is like putting a piece of frosted grass to mess up your clean image,

    Most people will tends to buy the best provided they have the money but like others here have said, it doesn't make sense if you are getting a $200 kit lens and then spend $100 on an UV filter (50%). But, if you are spending $1,500-$2,000 on a lens, then the $100 filter becomes a much smaller percentage (5%).

    exactly, i would spend 150 on a filter because i want the best for the lens i paid so much for, make sense. but i would not pay a cent for vitacon filters.

    don't forget the wait, it's horribly long. even as a long-time customer, sometimes i just pick it up and go. alot of people take advantage of them and try hell lot of lenses and never buy or take damn long to decide, causing the wait.
