    Hi
    I buy my all stuff from B&H and they are very good .U can pay with credit card and ususally things are dispatched with 24 hrs via USPS . They also offer 30 days refund /exchange period if u r unhappy with ur purchases. Dont forget to click the link thro this forum so that forum gets some share from B&H . It doesnt affect ur bill at all . B&H is one of the best places to buy ur gear . I would also advise to see if u need some lenses or anything else as they can combine shipping .
    Cheers

    bhupinder,
    while some prices at b+h are great but with their int'l shipping it
    work out sometime higher than getting the stuff locally, at least
    that's how it is for me.

    btw... you signature shows a new oly model. :wink:

    request b+h to advice you the tracking number once they shipped your camera out.

    What's the "copy card"? And what is actually the problem? You just put the stuff you want in the shopping cart, press "checkout", input your visa/mastercard credentials and then wait for the goods to arrive. Like any other store, it's simple and straightforward. I've bought from b&h several times and there's nothing unique about buying from them, except you have to pay with a card and not paypal/google.

    There is no need to send ur card copy . Just open an account and then u can buy by paying online . B&H is a well reputed dealer in NY .They charge only 44-66 USD for shipping to Australia .I don't know anything about shipping to Indonesia but it won't be expensive .

    I couldn't find any menu to make a payment, that is why I asked the above question. Or perhaps since they closed at this time. Dunno

    Hahah Jim ur eyes are more sharper than a prime Leica lens ...
    A friend of mine has gone overseas for a shoot and he left his Sony a580 with me . Interestingly there is one Sony 50 mm 1.8 SAM lens as well . I will try to test it again my EPL2 and Oly 45 mm 1.8 and see how do they compare . Its a very boring an uninspiring camera though it should perform very well as sensor is same which Pentax has used in K5 .
