agree with you, i just made my order from B&H, but my shipment took about 7-10 days, becos i chosed the US airmail, which take longer to arrive s'pore.

you can also try keh. i ordered a couple of hard to get lenses recently. they use fedex to ship it over. cost a bit but the lenses got here within 4 days of shipping. the condition was as described in the keh catalog - "like new" and "excellent". very happy with the purchase.

I've bought quite a number of stuffs from B&H, J&R and Amazon through the net over the years, so far no problems with delays or problems. My advice is: stick to reliable merchants.
If you buy from B&H, it's better to shipped via UPS as you can then track your parcel and the shipping time is usually faster.
As for GST, you will need to pay if the purchase amount (including shipping costs) exceeds SGD$400.

My experience is that for small items such as filters, memory cards or other light weight items, vpostusa may cost a little cheaper, maybe about 10-20% savings when compared to direct shipping via vendor. The downside is that you usually have to wait at least 2 weeks for your items to arrive.

thanks for all the replies,
Why adorama cannot ship to sin? When i checked the site, singapore was actually on the shipping list. anybody tried buying used lens before from B&H? Is their rating reliable?
