I have two Questions
1. Some time ago I saw the Shen Hao cameras listed on your site or was it JandC.
Now they are gone, what happened ?
2. You carry lensboards for Opemus enlargers. Are the reccesed 39mm thread lensboard for Opemus 5 different from the lensboard for Opemus 6 ?
Thanks in advance

we discussed this for hours at the Photokina with Shen Hao.
They refuse to establish any kind of a dealer price structure or volume discounts and told us that it is a company principal to sell to anyone at the same price regardeless of the fact if they are a distributor, dealer or end customer.
They will sell to you directly from China at the same price they sell to a dealer like us.
As most people do not understand the costs of importing (paperwork fees, customs declaration fees, import tax, sales tax, transport costs etc.) the price difference between a price we can offer you and the listed price in China will be about 100%.
This will encourage all customers to go direct.
So in the end we will be left with all the marketing expenses and work and repair jobs and the turnover is lost to direct sales from China. Especially German customers love to do things like this and always look for the best price- no matter how the service is.
Under these nasty circumstances we unfortunately had to drop the idea to sell Shen Hao cameras at all. <img src='http://forum.fotoimpex.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':ph34r:' />
Opemus: Ofcourse there is a difference. Otherwise the lensboard would be called "lensboard for Opemus 2-6" <img src='http://forum.fotoimpex.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':ph34r:' />
The Lensboard for the 6 is bigger and will not fit in the 5.
