Hi,

noticed that some of the items (example camera lens) from Orient Photo is about more then $100 cheaper then elsewhere.

Wonder if any of you bought from this shop?
Is this shop so call "trustworthy"??

Thanks.

i think these items are "grey" i.e. only shop warranty or no warranty at all from authorized distributor.

Many people have different experiences than you do.......

there is only one camera shop inside Lucky Plaza that I trust too: Lords,

Likely you don't shop there either?

Their stuff are not so cheap...580EX no warranty @$700. With Local warrant at other shops $710. Which will you pay? Shop warrant...what if they return to china tomorrow? Who will be responsible for the warranty?

To the Threadstarter

1. Please do a search before you post cos there are a number of threads concerning Orient Photo with a pretty good mixed of comments.

2. This is also a wrong forum to post this it should be in the consumer forum not here. This is for General, Reviews, Tech Talk Share tips & tricks, techniques, general photography chat.

As such I am closing this thread.
