    Got reply from B&H....


    Still...US$64.95 is a good price...
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    maybe can start off with a list of people who are interested. no point MO if there is insufficient orders.

    whats the optimal size for sharing the shipping?

    Shipping for
    5 pieces from B&H is US$55 for US Mail, US$60 for US Mail Global Express and US$57 for UPS Express.

    10 pieces from B&H will be US$87.75 for US Mail Global Express and US$82.5 for UPS Express.

    Firestone, does it work out to be better if we order from jr and shipped by vPost (any GST?)?

    jr.com selling at abt US$80 so not worth it.... so most likely only B&H...

    Assuming worst case scenario of 10 pieces international shipping :
    (US$64.95 x10)x1.05 (GST)
    +US$87.75 (international shipping)
    = US$769.725 x1.7 (exchange rate)
    = S$1308.5325

    So approx S$130 pp

    Using Vpost :
    (US$64.95 x10)x1.05 (GST)
    +US$21.90 (UPS 3-day)
    = US$703.875 x1.7 (exchange rate)
    = S$1196.5875
    + S$9.99 + (S$6.99 x10) + (S$5.99 x11) (Vpost uses volumetric weight and using 2.1kg based on figure from firestone)
    = S$1336.3775

    So approx S$133 pp

    Worth it? Hmm.... now I'm tempted...

    I've tried to order many items from B&H, and they have better shipping rate when u order more things.. I chose UPS Express, and it offers an extremely good and accurate tracking system, which clearly states your goods is at which country/airport at what time and it's purpose (transit and/or scanning). I remembered it even states it's delayed at some asia country because of bad weather!

    I think we shd have sufficient interest.... More people will bring down the shipping costs thats all but a lot of difference...

    Bigfatfish... perhaps you can organise the MO since i am always out of town... Can start a thread in COnsumer corner already i think...
