Khurram Bhai .. yeh aap ka apna thread hai ... you are welcome to write whatever you like ...
The only issue about mentioning money was that in the beginning, whenever any friend asked about the cost, I mentioned it .. but then couple of friends PM'ed me and said that I was showing off. Certainly, it is not my objective, so since then I decided not to mention any prices ... but of course, it is not a BIG ISSUE .. we can discuss here no problems. No need to go to any other thread ...
Last night I opened the papers received with the camera and there was the bill with breakup.
Camera body 55000
Lens 18~105 AF-S DX Nikkor 27000
Bag original Nikon 2500
UV filter 67 mm = COMPLIMENTARY
8GB card .. 1000
16 GB card ... 2000
Lens Hood original Nikon .. 500
Total = 88000
Since you have budget of upto 80,000 ,, I would suggest you can leave out the bag, hood and cards ... and the rest can be bought for 84000 ...
DrShaggy and Asif Shahjahan are MashaAllah photography fanatics ... and their opinion about this particular model matters a lot.
Let me check the price of 18~200 mm lens. If it is reasonable, then perhaps I could sell the 18~105 lens to you and pay additional for larger lens. We can discuss if it suits you.
Please request Dr Shaggy to buy .. he bought it for far less price than what we telephonically surveyed in Lahore.
