I haven't got a chance to assimilate the DSLR's functions yet but I have a whole month of April to do that. I'm going on vacation and for sure you'll be seeing lots of posts and pictures about it later.
So for now, meet my Tomo, meaning friend in Japanese since I'm sure we'll go along way together.
How much did it cost me?
I got a great bargain since the retail price is 2,699 AED with 2 lens and the usual freebies like carrying case and 4GB SDHC card (from 3 electronic shops) . I found one shop where I haggle and got it at 2,550 AED (cash no CC or DC) with additional freebies like carrying case, tripod, 8GB Ultra SDHC card and another 8GB SDHC card.
