Getting bodies and lens are a waste of time. How about accessories? I never keep track of the prices so wondering is it worth the trip? Thinking of getting a Di866 Mk2 and simple accessories for portrait use - stands, lightbox, reflector, etc that kind of stuff.
:dunno:

And being cramped by hundreds... getting a piece of equipment that might easily have been cheaper on streets... short answer - NOOOOOOOO!

Well... the best bet is still to check your prices up... it was easy, just called up individual shops immediately and ask the price. Then u decide whether to go get cramped up or not.

The only accessory worth getting is MAHA battery charger, the high end C801S is abt $20 cheaper than usual store price. I want to get it without the batteries, any takers? :p

Can't you buy it at eastgear at the same price during the same period?

Thanks for the replies. My main interest is whether its cheaper for the Di866 Mk2 at $379 there. Tried calling but no one answering. The cheaper items I don't really expect any savings but might get along the way.

I just checked their website, it's a little cheaper in Comex. C800S/C801D is $90/$120 in Comex, both comes with 8 imedion batteries. Web price is $119/$150.

Hi there, I got my Di866 M2 at TK Photo Funan for $365 in Apr / May this year. It was during the last IT show. The show was selling at $398 'special' price. Comes with free lens pen. Was at Comex just now and the manfrotto 190xprob price is at $188. Think not much diff from outside. Agree that it's a waste of time.
