    Default Nikon d5000 kit price at $960 with gst?

    I go to all shop in lucky n funan for quotation n lucky plaza there is this big shop beside mac which is near the entrance with has lots of big lens display outside the shop. They quoted 960 after gst which is quite attractive when slr revo quoted 1028?

    Seems like too good to be true but what should I look out for?

    Warranty and maybe some accessories left out.Then the shop will say battery+charger add $50,USB cable add $10 and then finally sell u a $20+ filter for $70

    Hi, Also, go with a friend who can help you to check the product, etc two heads are better than one. There are occasions when after bringing the set back, you found that you have not checked the product carefully and regretted that there is a small crack, etc. and spend some time there before letting go your money.

    Lucky Plaza is a chopper's paradise and world famous tourist trap. Buy from shops there at your own risk.

    You can risk it and buy there. But be sure to check everything. Ask everything up front. Check everything ok, then pack everything back in then pay. Never let your sight stray away from that one box you packed. Put your hand on it or something. Hand the money over, and grab the box. And wait for the receipt. They want to pack the box for you in plastic bag, you say no need, just pass you the plastic bag. If they refuse, say you do not need a bag.

    And everything they recommend you buy, you say don't need. "I already have". If they ask you to buy filter and some stupid "converter" lens before bringing the box, just say you think about it. Then when the box come, and time to pay, say you only have 960. Needless to say, prepare exact change. And hide all your other cash in some secret pocket. Pay first take the box, say come back later for the other stuff. Then you pop over to OP in SLS and get your filters and LCD protectors, bags etc from there.

    Doesn't hurt to try. But be prepared for some confrontation if you do all this. Don't go alone. Go with 2 more guys or something. Anything not right, just walk. And do not, I say again, DO NOT, hand over any money before you have the camera infront of you, all checked and packed up. Once you hand over the money, grab the box immediately.

    For less than 100 bucks, you want to take the risk..

    I can tell you those shops are expert choppers, unless you are 100% & I mean 100% know what you buying, plus all the contents in the box and the warranty you should get..

    Be prepared to have a mind wreck or numerous trip back to the shop for some 'heated debate'
