I've had an equote from Cathay for the LC1 at 1649 excl GST with standard accesories and bundle with a case and additional CGR-S602 battery. Does any1 know what the quality of the case is like (leather, cloth, waterproof?) and whether the battery is original Panasonic or 3rd party (whether that's significant or not I'm not sure).
The alternative would be to go with the Alan Photo quote of 1570 excl GST with standard accesories only.
I guess what I'm asking is whether any1 has had any experience with the bundled additional accesories and whether it is worth the extra money.
Also, it would be more convenient for me to pay by credit card but the Alan Photo price is cash n carry only.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanx!!
