    I'm in Penang, and can anyone tell me where can I get good buys on L series lenses? The 70-200mm f/4 L for 3k something. Thanks.

    You might want to try walking along Penang road (Komtar side) There are easily 5 camera shops along this stretch. Click n Snap is on the Komtar side. As for getting a 70-200 f4 non-IS for 3 k......I'm sure you will get it provided you find any shop which has it in stock! Go for the IS version, its a better buy n u never need to upgrade.

    My recommendation is Click 'n' Snap.
    At Komtar opposite Penang Road.

    Today, went to Penang for price survey... quite a lot of people in those camera shop. Found out Hike Enterprise price is the lowest for most model... while CnS a bit more expensive. Bad service at CnS.. ask them question reluctant to answer... service not as good as before... become "tao" liao...

    seems like I am not the only person who is getting such treatment from there... I am getting better service at Excel and their price is much better than CnS...

    All with standard kits.

    Hike
    EOS1000D = RM1900 (free 2gb + bag)
    EOS450D = RM2650

    CnS
    EOS1000D = RM1980
    EOS450D = RM2700-2750

    One more is Nikon D90, CnS cheaper a bit but forget the price d.

    All quoted not the best price... must bring buddy there.

    hmm.. was recommended by a friend (few forum too).. but had the same experience here.. or maybe because i went there without my camera, or wearing plain white t-shirt with no expensive logo, paired with "selipar jamban" (with pants of course ) and holding my 7 years old daughter .. or maybe they just could read my mind.. ( ohh this guy just want to survey the price only, no intention to buy one.. no money one) or may be i'm just not their regular.. hmm.. lastly end up at BJ complex on the very same day @ Elite Photo.. after 20-30 ++ mins chit chat, went to ATM, withdraw some money, bought SB600 + one CPL filter.. really broke that day..
    what a day for an ordinary man like me... wasting my car fuel to go to KOMTAR, at the end had my stuff at nearby my house only..

    every now and then.. just go to EP @ BJComplex to survey prices..
    FOTO President also ok.. last price check (today) for 16-85mm they quote me RM2+++ .. haiyya price increased (last time cannot remember when, RM1850 only..) without nego...

    Re: Penang Cheap Camera Shops

    CnS has another sister shop at he back, just under the stairwell. There is not much traffic there and the sales people may have more time for u.......

    But shop around....you have 5 pretty well stocked camera shops all within walking distance. Prices are competitive, I have no loyalty and have bought from most of them....depends who has items in stock
