i tin he can make a call to chk wif the delivery man when the stock be comin in.. give mi an ans.. instead of keptin mi waiting... i mean sorta of weird.. ppl wan buy from ur shop and u seems like so unhappy to clinch tat deal..

true tat i can buy from other shop but he offer mi quite a gd price tats y i wanna get over there.. been wantin to buy cam veri long liao finally nw c the model i like wanna buy then like tat.. i kinda of piss off but wat to do.. i wan 2 buy there...

Man, what are the English teachers in school teaching these days?? Can get a headache just trying to read your post :eek:

Anyway, just check the warranty cards if buying from a non-authorised dealer. As long as it has Nikon Singapore on it, should be fine. Some of these so-called "authorised dealers" are outright rip-offs, so being a Nikon authorised dealer doesn't guarantee that they're honest

my suggestion is dont be bother checking with them anymore.

obviously he's not interested in the deal for the fact that the price he's quoted u is probably below cost. maybe he thot u're just asking for fun, so the price he quoted u was also for 'fun' only. Only when u wanted to buy then the fella would say stock will come in afternoon, whenever etc etc..

want to test them? can try this..

ask ur fren, or other people to just call them casually asking bout the price of coolpix 3200.. then coolpix 5200 (the model u wanted).. after they quoted the price for coolpix 5200, before bargaining u ask them whether got any stock in at the moment or not... i can bet to the last cent they'd say have the stock.

good luck ;)

OT: Hmm...by putting just a bit more effort writing good English in this forum (or anything written for that matter) I think it will be easier for people to help you too...the time spent trying to decode your message would be used to help you, yah? ;)

Not against your way of writing, just find it a bit difficult to read. Not all people understand at first glance your short forms and alternative spellings. :sweat:

Anyway, all the best in getting your camera... :cool:
