    If you are in Australia ... come and see me ... I will look after you
    Come in wearing jeans or a suite

    I make no judgement

    If you want something I will sell it to you with no extra charges or less charges that depend on how you wish to pay.

    If you want a 7D or a 700D, or lens, or 4GB card, or a lowepro case ... it makes no difference to me.

    I will give you the best deal I can offer.

    If you come in naked .... I may want to take a minute to think about it

    Personally I look at it that you want something...I have it ...I want to sell it to you.

    There is no reason to alter my price from my best price because you look poor !

    I trust you all do well and expect the same treatment where ever you are

    Cheers

    A friend who sold handphones at Singtel told me that there's a certain level of accuracy in judging a person by the way he dresses. Usually if the person dresses lok-kok, he would just buy a cheap handphone.

    "tell them if box not sealed (ie it is not opened in front of you) you will not buy'

    If you test the camera, the box will be opened. what if you decided not to buy after testing?
    The next customer will not have a chance to test...

    I test after I pay and test in front of the salesperson. I tell him/her that is what I am going to do and he has to replace if something is wrong. Is that fair enough?
    I dont try for the sake of trying - I try to make sure I am not getting a lemon.
    If you want to try before you buy, go try at some shop who like you to try.
    By the way I dont need to try at the shop. I can go to service center and play.

    yes and no to this.
    if someone is a total newbie to the dslr thingy, he surely want to try everything. those familiar with it dont need to try.

    hence i think for testing and trying out should be given more to entry level camera. those high end camera like d3, d700, 1ds...(anything above 4k) can dun test. not all shops can afford to purchase camera for displays

    There's no present. There's only the immediate future and the recent past.

    That's just pure discrimination at its best. Its a disease. An incurable one. How sad.
