    So far I've only seen Kai dropped 24-70 before... :P
    Kai doesn't have any respect for photography equipment, he is so "rough" with them, may be except with his boss' M9P.

    But at least his videos are entertaining enough.

    oh ya, the hot chocolate at the coffee machine was pretty damn good.
    IIRC, the big guns out on display were AF-S 300mm f/2.8 VRII and AF-S 200mm f/2 VRII... haven't seen anything bigger like the 500mm... Maybe if you request it, Marcus will deal you that "posion" from the stores? On the other hand, you can always try to look out for Nikon sponsored events. Just beginning of this year, they were sponsoring the free sport photography talk organised by Singapore Sports Council, all who attended got to molest the big guns 300/400/500/600 onwards... and boy are they poisonous not to mention heavy too!

    UPS to NSC once again... MY D700 broke down earlier this year and was told the main board short circuit... I was quote 700++ initially but when the camera was done, it's only 400++ plus general servicing, cleaning...

    From nothing to very good actually.

    That one day when I entered the service centre and saw the new coffee/hot chocolate dispenser I thought i saw a god-sent.

    It's much better than the nescafe machine at Canon Service Centre.

    What he dropped was fake lens with some camera trick.

    So far my experience with the staffs and support at NSC are very happy. It also good to hear that they offer such gesture to trade in damage product. Consider that damage a 2-3K lenses already very heart pain liao. Then lenses beyond repair and need to fork out another 2-3K to purchase another.... double impact... So NSC offering such a discount price is really good.

    This is not unusual for NSC to exchange a new lens for the damaged one. Two years ago my 24-70mm f2.8 has a very stiff zoom and is not under warranty anymore. I when to the NSC they told me they would not want to repair it or the technician is not capable to repair it , similarly they offer me a new lens with 6 months warranty with new serial number and i have to paid $935 and I accepted the offer. I think this is their standard practice
