    Default Singapore Leica Camera Price Guide 2012

    Welcome to the CS Singapore Leica Camera Price Guide 2012

    This has been in the works since the beginning of the year and I hope that RFers and would-be RFers find this information useful. I have heard many sceptics giving feedback that there is no point having a Leica price guide, for various reasons including "buying Leica is an emotional decision", "prices fluctuates", "buy overseas cheaper"... and while I do agree with some of these comments, I do know that when I started out in RF journey, or starting any system at that matter, a price guide was something very useful to have, so that I had an idea of the absolute and relative prices for the various products in making my decision to take the plunge... or not...

    Further, there is a huge variety of used vintages and current lenses... and while I know that makes up the bulk of the transactions, there are too many variables involved to consider to a load into a simple price guide - the vintage, the condition, the accessories, etc.
    Instead, this price guide only focuses on NEW Leica camera equipment available and bought in Singapore.

    A few housekeeping notes and rules*, **, ***

    - Prices are Suggested Retail Price (SRP), unless otherwise stated.
    - Prices are in Singapore Dollar (SGD) and inclusive of Goods and Services Tax (GST)
    - Pls do not ask me for prices...
    - If you have prices to update or contribute, pls send it to me via PM in the following format

    Prod ID | Product Name | Price | Shop | Date & Comments

    11602 | NOCTILUX-M 50mm f/0.95 ASPH. | 16,280 | Leica Store | Jan 2012


    * This is provided as a guide and should be used as a guide only.
    ** Please understand that there will be price fluctuations and differences between shops.
    *** Neither myself nor ClubSNAP shall bear any responsibility should actual prices differ from those reflected in this guide.

    Please do not post directly to this thread. Instead, pls PM me updates.

    Lastly, I would like to urge that, as with the other prices guides, it is updated by CSers for CSers, so that we can all benefit from the sharing.

    Thank you for the price list and updates.

    Can I check if the dealers in Singapore offer any sort of discounts or bundles or are the retail prices listed fixed?

    When you visit a Leica store , you will feel like you are in a Camera Boutique. As such, the owners are giving you the impression that "if you can't afford it, don't ask for the prices" ....

    Joke aside, yes, if you talk serious with them, they will offer you a few percentages off .... and off the record, the salesgirl will tell you that most buyers will not ask for it
    always the Light, .... always.

    FYI, there are now 3 Leica outlets in Singapore - Raffles Hotel, Mandarin Gallery and Ion.

    Wandered into the MG branch by accident over the weekend and was informed they are currently offering 'Pro Packages'

    S-series body+3 lenses+Flash+2 batteries+charger = $55k+ (sorry can't remember exact amount)

    M-series body purchase entitles buyer to 10% discount on up to 3 lenses

    Packages available 'while stocks last', i.e. no set end date announced yet

    There is now a store at Vivo City. It is more like a large kiosk. The salesperson told me that this is a new concept to make Leica more approachable. It definitely attract more people to look at the compact models.
