I see that the prices around the world have risen to meet those we pay here in Aussie. Call it equalising..level playing field?
tell me about it.
when i bought my kit, i checked the prices online at Teds, and could afford a 7D and 15-85.
for the same price in The Netherlands i got the 7D, 15-85, 70-300nonL, 58+72mm UV filters and 8GB 60MB/s CF card, and a free National Geographic hardcover photography book. Was annoyed the damn dutch customs wouldn't give me duty-free, but it was already cheap enough.
after a few months, i added up the 70-300nonL, UV Filter and Lowepro 2S case, came to AU$650. I sold it to my sister for $500. Saw it the next day, lens only
, second hand
for $750. ouch.
Just got the 70-300L and B+W MRC filter, ended up paying about AU$1500 for it after duty free. can't even get that in Hong Kong...
