    That Servaas Products, who now seem to be Protog were a site sponsor, is this not the case ??

    Was looking at some products they have but can get elsewhere for moderatley less so was going to push the business their way to help out here ??
    Jeff is currently rebadging his business and changing the name of it is part of that process. He will be re-launching soon. In the meantime check out the new site : http://www.protog.com.au/

    Cheers Rick,

    I found his site, I was just enquiring as to whether he is still a site sponsor, as that could sway my purchase choice.

    Sort of. Jeff and I are presently renegotiating his contract due to the change of company names, website etc. New banner ads are coming, but the old ones are down cause they point to the old business name. Because I have legally binding contracts, we need to finalise it all and get it all re-signed under the new company name etc. But certainly I would not say 'don't buy from him cause he isn't an advertiser", its just that at present its a bit messy.

    Most certainly would not - "not buy from him because he is not an advertiser" -

    For once I am actually not in any great hurry to spend my money so will probably just wait until you get it all settled and then buy

    @Goatch - with any grey or OS advertiser you need to check the legals on warranty for yourself.
    AP are not responsible.

    As I understand things some brands have international warranty on lenses but not bodies.
    Eg: http://ww2.nikon.com.au/warranty.php
    http://www.nikon.com.au/pagearticle....=65-52b9b66212

    Per site rule [20] this post does not constitute legal advice

    Yes, some of the site advertisers are 'grey market'. Each member should assess the services provided by any advertiser, to ensure they meet what they want.

    This is it, at the top is each sponsor and their banner, which if you click them, takes you to their sites

    HI Analog if you have some banner blocking app running you don't get to see the banners. Perhaps try a different browser for just that page.

    I can see the banners OK but there used to be a sort of Index page where they were all listed and I am sure i clicked on the 'sponsors' button up there at the top of the page to get access it.

    I've had great experience buying off B&H...When dealing with overseas companies, it's always a relief to know the companies you can trust. B&H is one of them! But from now on I will click through Ausphotography to purchase from B&H so commission stays at home.

    Another shameless plug for Stu at Quality Camera in Perth.

    Products that I needed wanted in stock.
    A better price than dealers in Melbourne were asking.
    Delivered to the door 26 hours after ordering and we can't even get overnight delivery of express post from Melbourne.

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.
