    can up the iso.
    base on samples so far i can put my head on the line... its comparable...

    but FF will still have better overall IQ...

    @pinholecam and night86mare thanks for your advice.
    guess the only thing to do now is to wait 8-10 days for the goods to be sold.

    Looking at Fengwei, night86mare, creampuff and all the others masters works here, its obvious FF is an indulgement rather than a requirement. Unless we are working professionally and with large images, is there any reason to put up with the larger and more cumbersome size body of an FF? FF may have better IQ and lower noise logically but with the small images up to A4 that we normally print, what other real life advantages do they offer ?
    I'm quite happy with the APS-C size though..heh heh

    i think your points are increasingly valid with each passing day. it is obvious that the gap is narrowing. in the old days, canon 5d mark I was something special. now the canon 5d mark II and nikon d700 are of course, still more detailed, have more DR, etc etc.... but the gap is very much narrowed, and is still narrowing.

    now if the bigger companies could bother to put more effort into aps-c arena.... instead of trying to maintain a broad approach covering all bases, i think may be on par now.

    i won't go so far as to call it an indulgence though... maybe for a hobbyist, you could see it as such, but i was never one to really tell others how they should spend their money. my emphasis is that they must be able to experience and appreciate the additional utility gained from purchasing FF over CF... considering the exponential price.

    Thanks for the info Bro..That's like the US recommended price directly converted to S$. Better than expected. Resistance is futile now.

    I guarantee it's not typo To be honest, $288 for start up price is very very reasonable.

    Plastic or glass elements?
    I say the lens is the soul of a camera. What about the body? Well, it's just the body...

    probably not, coz it's not cost effective..
    but i bet many are willing to pay a little bit more for the color of choice..
