    Default Buying Lenses Online

    Will you buy them online??

    Since a lot of them after shipping is still cheaper than Sg.

    It depends from which shop/seller..........there are alot of scam shops in the US. What they do, is offering a low price but the goods don't come complete, and are missing items that are normally included. When you want them they will ask incredible prices, and total the price will be more than at other (more reputable) shops. Here is a site with reviews on US shops:

    I'd go to Singapore to buy my lenses, it's cheaper than here and I feel safer than doing it online.

    Yeah! Don't worry about B&H, Adorama is another good one, or MPEX, Bill Cameta (used items)........some don't ship to Singapore anymore though....

    I used to buy from cameraworld when I was in the US, no doubt for the high price they got free shippng. But not sure whether they deliver to Singapore or not....

    B&H is the most reputable shop. They make sure that the buyer is genuine and they have a valid credit card. They want you to photograph your credit card to make sure that you are the owner of the card before they do any shipping.
