I was just wondering if anyone has had direct finacial dealings with Mr. Fuming at Shen-Hao. I am interested in buying some equipment directly from him. He has given me his account details in Shanghai and asked for a wire transfer. Has anyone done this? Is this safe? I live in Australia and do not know of anyone who stocks Shen-Hao equipment here. Also, I hope to by-pass the middle man to save money.
Another question. I have read Kerry's review of the Shen-Hao DAYI 617 back in Viewfinder. Is this now advertised as the SH617 Art Panorama on the Shen-Hao website? It looks slightly different, and there is no sign of the auxiliary focusing unit in the pictures. The few words written on this product don't make much sense to me. Does anyone have any further information on this back?
