    Default Hello!

    Hello all! I'm going to be investing in my first DSLR during COMEX so wanted to drop by and say hello!

    Had been fiddling with my LX3 for about a year and I had so much fun with it that I decided I want to upgrade and move to using a DSLR. Hope to be able to get some tips & learn more stuff about photography!

    LOL. I actually did search around here..

    I was intending to look at the COMEX prices to compare against the quotes that I've already got from other shops. If COMEX can beat the value, i'll buy at the show. If not I'll likely get from MS Colour.

    They quoted me $1050 nett for my D5000 kit. PWP 55-200 lens + original battery @ $199. Throw in a 16GB SD card (that's kind of like a given)..

    I'm happy with the quote and it's the best so far I've checked.. but well since I work in Suntec anyway, I thought I'd go check out Comex when it opens tomorrow.

    And you didn't find out that these shows sell cameras at RRP?

    No harm taking a look since I work in Suntec and I can go just when it opens so the crowd isn't really coming in yet. If I had to make an effort to travel down for it, I probably wouldn't bother. After all I know what I want and I know how much it costs outside, so it's not as if I'm going in blind.

    I was thinking of being a little bit KS and go at 11.30.. A couple of colleagues are going too so we're all going to look see look see. No matter what, my MS quote is still valid tomorrow. If comex fails to give the deals, I'll head to AMK after work.
