    It is about that price, SGD799 MRSP. Why?

    Because.....

    USD499 x 1.3 (exchange rate) = SGD648.70

    SGD648.70 + SGD100 (for bringing in the lense) = SGD748.70

    SGD748.70 x 1.07 (GST) = SGD801.11

    Pretty reasonable. Looks like I am going to HK in end Oct to grab this lense first. Street price in SG should be about $680+/-?

    He's referring to 399usd price for 45/1.8 in USA, local street price is ~S$410. But from 75 or 60mm street price don't seem to be.

    Olympus unveils 12mm F2.0 and 45mm F1.8 fast primes for Micro Four Thirds: Digital Photography Review

    45mm/F1.8 is USD399. This 60mm macro is USD499.

    Additionally, this is a macro lense, not your everyday can use portrait lense intended. Production is likely to be smaller than 45/1.8. Think there are more people who likes to shoot naked females than naked insects

    Haha yup this was what I was referring too... Maybe it's just that the 45mm was priced too low in singapore.. Hope they will do the same for the 60mm. so far no announcement from Olympus regards to the len, unlike the last time when they announce on fb the arrival of the 45mm

    At S$799, the lens is just over-priced here

    The 75mm mark up is still not that bad considering that 899usd ~1170 with gst is just nice 1250 lol

    I love Ming Thien's work. The product stills are quite highly sought after.

    20% off RRP seems to be the right market price.
