Thread: Canon 550D

  1. #1

    Default Canon 550D

    Hi,

    Newbies reporting, thanks to the wealth of information in this forum, I have managed to narrowed down that Canon EOS550D meets my needs and stays within my budget.

    Went to a shop to check out the current price and was offerred S$1,600(includes GST) for the EOS 550D kit II - 18-135mmIS len with free 8gb SD card and EOS bag.

    Is this a good deal currently?

    Cheers

    the prices will not differ too much. if it is within your budget, and you like it, then u should get it.

    agree... you won't be saving much if you go around hunting, unless $20-30 difference means a lot to you. $1600 seems reasonable with that lens (note: it's lens, not len) combo.

    Welcome to CS
    Prices change every now & then. Could be more, could be less. Could be many freebies, could be less. If you want to monitor till the best price with best freebies, I can say that you'll end up with no camera.
    So, just work within your budget & buy with peace of mind
    Take the shot!

    Hi night86mare, thanks for your advice will recheck again before buying. Can help to share the potential risk of buying outside the recommended shop. Thanks

    Be wary when they try to sell you add-ons like filters, wide angle converters at marked up prices. Read the threads at the Consumers Corner for some of the dodgy sales tactics of some shops.

    1) sometimes serial number on camera and serial number on warranty card don't match.
    2) ditto for the lens
    3) they might harass you into getting extras, or claim that some things that should normally be included in the package (like charger) are chargeable items.

    check package to make sure charger there, battery there, all accessories that you need there.

    if don't need, then never mind, but essential things like battery better be there.

    to be honest, to avoid such things, don't gamble, just get from the better shops. if the price is the same, why take the risk?
