In AKL for one day ... time to play with some lenses ... which one is friendlier and which one has more stuff?




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Progear in Newmarket is awesome. I have bought almost all my gear from there.

I shopped at Photo Warrhouse on Great North Road recently. The staff were friendly and helpful, the person I was dealing with spent a fair bit of time helping me pick out a new camera bag. They had a table set out so I could put all my gear in it to see if it what I needed. Quite useful!

I spent nearly two hours at Auckland Camera farting around with bodies, lenses and grilling various sales staff when deciding between the Fuji X-T1 and Olympus OM-D1 recently. The staff were friendly, helpful, tolerant and reasonably knowledgeable.

Happy enough to visit them again next time I need to test something.

Also rang photo warehouse and the guy was very helpful.

Thanks all. That concludes the Thrifty trip.
