Thread: Reporting here with a Nikon D200 :-)

    Default Reporting here with a Nikon D200 :-)

    My first post :-) Just started to have fun with photography...
    Looking to get some lens too.... can't afford the nikon 35mm f1.4 :-( so have to settle for the nikon 35mm f1.8.

    Any one can recommend me a good place to buy?
    From research (aka internet), dd elctronics is pretty good, and a few joints in funan is ok too.

    Cheers

    Hi and welcome to cs
    I reckon the recommended shops in cs are generally good places to purchase your stuffs.. but there had been not so nice experiences reported as well.. so, just do your homework and you'll be fine!!
    Happy shopping!

    Note that when you buy from DD Electronics, they bring in only grey sets, which means warranty is gone (NSC will not accept the warranty card and will charge you for any repairs). There is shop warranty, but I don't know how reliable their shop warranty is, so it's something you have to consider. Personally I'd buy cheaper stuff from them, but for things like 70-200, definitely not.

    hi and welcome!
    35/1.4 would be quite a waste on your D200, since you're paying for FX coverage but only using the DX bit.
    35/1.8DX is much more value for money.

    There are a few reputable shops in Funan, but there are a few notorious ones as well.
    Do check prices beforehand, and never let them convince you into buying something you never intended to buy in the first place!
    Exploring! :)

    Have you compare the price difference between DD and rest of the reputable shops in Funan and Peninsular? If it is 10-20 dollars different, IMO might as well get a proper set rather than grey set.
