Just as an FYI I was in futureshop ( not looking for cameras but something else) and decided to have a look at the cameras. I was checking out the 70-200 f4, or wanted to anyways they didn't have one, and I asked the guy the price. He said he will match ANY price in the city plus another 5% off or something like that. So worth thinking about.

Broadway camera is good but I only seem to buy used stuff these days and when I do it's from this Forum ( the buy sell section)

I work at futureshop, if anyone needs camera gear or accessories let me know.

So do they price match and then some? Or was this guy I talked to full of it?

great photos everyone!

I'm wondering where the best prices are for new gear in the Lower Mainland. I've bought a number of things from Broadway but wanted to ask before heading back out for my next lens purchase.
thanks :)

I just bought an Elinchrom Ranger RX Speed AS kit from kerrisdale Cameras in Richmond. First off, it wasn't even a product they normally have in stock. Secondly, they matched Vistek's sale price (in ontario). On top of that, they had it shipped from their own warehouse in Ontario to the Richmond location at no cost. So not only did I get the best price on the internet matched, they also got it sent to a location near my home at no cost AND included a 2 year warranty since it was purchased in Canada (as opposed to NO WARRANTY, had I bought it from B&H or any other retailer not in Canada). Win, win, win. The guy's name at the Richmond Center location is Paul and he has managed the store for more than 20 years. My 2 cents....

Let's try for a meet up. I'm game pretty much anytime. I will PM you at some point and maybe we can arrange something. I haven't been shooting long either but would love to get out with someone and go shooting. By the way you have a lens on my hit list. I want the 10-22 as well and looking at getting a 70-200 f4 IS

Price match is 10% of the DIFFERENCE only. On big packages such as camera with lens and accessories theres more room for discounting.
