Hey forum! I recently bought a canon eos 550D and a lot of my friends said I have got myself swindled. I bought mine from a shop at lucky plaza (shall not name it until its clarified) for a total of $1580 SGD inclusive of GST. The guy was like forcing me to buy all the stuff and this is what I paid : $1200 for the eos 550D with 18-55 lens. around $150 for one UV filter and one Polarising filter.(is it called filter? its something think and its a circle which you screw onto the main lens). $100 for another battery from unknown brand. (he said canon battery last less than an hour and this one can last 5 hours while continuously used). He "gave free" two memory cards 8GB, the eos bag and thats all. All this for 1580 do you think its worthed it? I think I have gotten myself cheated, or am I just being a cheapskate? Because my friends bought theirs from Alan Photography for around 1.6k for the 18-135 lens kit. Please help): I'm kinda lost right now.
