    People in CS love to help ! As long as you have done a reasonable amount of homework first !!

    Anyway... I dont know much about the converter that you got, but just make the best use of it !! Try try try hard !! And be happy making pictures !!! And know that friends in CS will be around to advice and help !!

    Happy shooting !!

    There have been past cases of people getting conned to buying these Vitacon converters at exorbitant prices. Thus the inclination towards emphasising the "con" part of the brand.

    The Raynox is definitely a great piece to have. Since you have researched it, it would have been more prudent to have stayed on track and just got it instead of letting the salesperson persuade you into a purchase solely based on his opinions.

    keep shooting !!
    Yeah, they showed me the retail price of the converter to me, which is $2199. even i wanna make complaint to CASE or what also cant, as the price they sold is way below the retail price.
    Hopefully tomorrow they willing to change the converter to raynox when i bring it back to them.
    btw, is raynox also cant see anything when its far distance?

    Yes, its the nature of the close up lens. Just remove it to take normal things
    I probably collect lenses more than I take pictures

    Is it possible? never try nv know...best if you could find the same item elsewhere, ask for the price and take some evidence(photo etc) and talk to the sales ppl there...if still no luck, try CASE. There's really no reason to take the cheating silently...

    I'm not familiar with Canon lenses, but the 50mm f/1.8 is quite a good beginner lens. And I believe it can be had for $100/$110 brand new.

    You can mount it reversely and use it as a macro lens too. Will need some sort of adaptor though, which also shouldn't cost much.

    ah ok, they came out with new "brand" to con people again.

    there we have another person being conned and now trying to sell it off to another unsuspecting newbie.

    Remember another rule, lens that generally give more than 1 dedicated function are usually very average in doing both/all and should logically cost very little compared to the dedicated.

    Well good luck in exchanging it for a raynox 250, highly doubt they will even bother with you as Bally is a very very famous con shop.

    Apparently, CASE will not help you if the RRP is much higher than what you paid.

    unless you got video recording with the salesman saying "So what if I con you", dun even bother going to CASE. CASE Singapore is useless.

    To put things in perspective.... being humans we all lie now and then. We are all hypocritical now and then. We are all "sinners" for want of a better word (non religious person here). Most people will however make an effort to reduce the above ya ??? So most people are actually nice ??? Unfortunately there are those that choose to make a living in undesirable ways ... while we deplore them, we could also take a step back and think about whether there are circumstances which made them that way ???

    Yes... I agree you were cheated, but take it as a life's lesson.

    Do your homework before putting money into stuff etc... Its an important lesson because in future, there will be much more times where you need to put in REALLY big amounts of money, like buying life insurance, buying a car (maybe), buying a home, making investments ... This lesson hard as it is now, will teach you (no doubt) to look hard at options, consider, and get 2nd opinions before making any decisions !!! Errors in judgment in those above, will cost tens of thousands and many years to pay up, if ever....

    And you do want to take pictures of the kind hearted kid who helped the old granny across the road ya ???
