"Open Nikon, Open Happiness". That has been my battlecry for the past ten months. That since I bought my Nikon dslr camera. It might sound like the tagline of a popular refreshment commercial but it's true, life has never been this fun for me.
But be careful. Make sure you buy lenses that are sold by authorized Columbia Digital Star Corporation (CDSC) dealers. There are a lot of lenses sold in the grey market and I don't personally recommend them. I am proud to say that I bought my Nikon dslr camera from an authorized CDSC dealer in SM-Manila and my 55-200mm telephoto lens as well. I am after the 2 year warranty which you can't find when you buy in the Grey Market.
There are many reasons why buying from a CDSC retailer is still the best choice http://nikonasia-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4733 - Nikon VS Grey Market. For me, I simply put peace of mind on top of it all.
