    thx for the help, but dont think thats quite accurate cos its pretty long ago? cause i saw on canon website the body 500D itself is only 899 after GST, so it can only be lower if i get it from places like funan?

    thanks for the help anyway

    if you're DYING to know, isn't it easier to pick up the phone and CALL the shops, instead of grumbling about the prices not being up-to-date on the forum, don't you think?
    Then do the community a favour by sending a PM to the person in charge of the pricelist to update him on the price you were quoted...

    That is helping the community to help people...
    Exploring! :)

    u can opt for 2nd hand at BnS, u can get roughly around S$1150(650 for body with warranty left + 500 for lens) if u're patient enough, then u can use the extra 350++ to buy dry cabi, filter(if u need one), extra batt, etc2
    i buy i sell i use, repeat, such are the vicious endless cycle of GAS
