EOS Bodies / Prices in Thailand
« on: August 20, 2013, 05:43:57 AM »
Just for the heck of it. I went to the Canon store today. They have stores here just for looking at the equipment.
I picked up a catalog then went to the larger retailers and asked for the prices of the cameras.
This is with full warranty and VAT refund for the foreigner.

Canon 1Dx catalog - 195,000 Baht. $6093.75   price after VAT refund  $5728.13

1Dx at big photo shops. No cut rate shops. Only the biggest and most trusted.
1Dx - 185,000 Baht. 5781.25  price after VAT refund $5434.38

5D III big shop with warranty. about 26-2700 dollars. Vat refund would be about $2538 that is without haggeling at all.

I thought interesting, Just thought I would share.

Lenses / Sigma lenses

I was wondering if Sigma re-designed there super telephoto lenses with the sports label. And they were almost as good optically as Canon. Would you buy them?
With the new sports lens and the option to have the mount changed to any brand you want, at any time! That would let me buy one lens and try different manufacturers body's with no problems. With a small fee for mount change.
I am thinking this is what is about to happen with Sigmas large super telephotos in the next year.
Any thoughts?

Sorry if this has been listed before. I just saw it.
Interesting to look at anyway.
Looks like both are not near as sharp as the 300mm II  lens. Which surprises me.
