    I know I've voted for Lords (I-Photo now), but that was when I got DSLR body and other accessories. Don't get me wrong, they are still okay IMHO. Recently, my fav haunt has been TK-Foto, probably it's due to their great range of one-stop-for-all goods. I've bought from SLR before and I think their service is okay too. Orient Photos is okay too. Trust me, not everyone knows everything - even the best salesmen can't know everything unless you're talking to the "active" boss himself or herself (but don't take for guaranted that he/she would know everything either). Each store has its fair share of good and bad salemen/women. But don't forget this "good and bad" can be subjective from person to person. Who is a good saleman to you maybe the opposite for another - it is simply "chemistry" between two parties. If you don't "click" with the sale person, that is just it, move on and see if you can get lucky with the others.

    As far as I'm concerned, go into each store with 50 to 70% confidence - to safe guard your feelings towards the store. Not 100%, as you'll only get disappointed if you do so.

    Great customer service, providing you're willing to wait in line behind 10 other people. They are always so busy

    I always call around several places and buy from the cheapest, as the prices vary greatly, and support is provided by manufacturer (although I have not needed any yet, touch wood!).
    Cathay @ PP, Alan Photo @ Funan, MS Color @ AMK blk 711

    I think think i've successfully got through to John 3:16 by phone, too busy to answer.

    by far john 3:16 is the most friendly service i've ever received from all of the other shops mentioned, they let me play with their sigma 70-200mm f2.8 & canon 70-200 f2.8L without even intimidating me to buy, really top notch service(no wonder everytime when i pass the place always packed) though i find the price is a bit on the high side, well anyway i'm a second hand buyer from BnS section, no money to buy at shops for new one lol

    Bought my 7D at TK Photo, found it to be the cheapest there at that time.
    Bought 2 other lenses at SLR Revolution, their prices seem to be $10-$50 cheaper than other shop.
    Bought other accessories, hoods, remotes from ebay.

    From the poll most people like buying from Cathay Photo, I find the prices a little higher most of the time, but I bought a battery there bfore and bargined $1 off. lol

    thumbs up to Ray. sms him and he replied promptly.
    even though i only bought a body, he let me and my friend tried 3-4 lens without black face or pressure. top quality customer service. their price is generally on the low side.

    Happened to me too. But waiting time is shorter.

    It's the shop to go to when there aren't a lot of customers.

    MS color gets my vote.
    They bother to contact other branches to bring stock over when they're out.
    I got my lenses from them.

    My vote is bns section. I do help ease off tension for those guys who is undecided and troubled.

    Anyway, j3:16 is always packed because parking space for testing there is free . So many people there trying trying but no buying. Seriously.
    I dunno!!!
    It's banana-zero-neh. :)

    I used to go to CP for most of my stuff (not much anyway, just some accessories) but now I check out all the shops and buy from whoever has the cheapest price. No particular preference service doesn't really matter to me since I've done my research and I just want to get the equipment while saving as much as I can and then go.
