    Most of the prices include GST. However, it also means cash terms.

    I have tried to steer away from overseas prices except local prices. However, for discontinued items, since it is not available, it is better to still indicate the prices overseas. If there are no more stocks, then the price should be deleted but the model remains to show the discontinuity.

    Need everyone inputs on this.....

    my input is that, if it is discountinued, its last known local pricing should be left there as a gauge for 2nd hand market. The 2nd hand market is based on what you can get locally. else how come the 50-200mm is selling for $1500??

    Should think about people like me trying to sell the E1. Putting a price like $1125, makes people think that I bought the E1 at $1125 or that they can get the E1 at $1125, which they CAN'T after you factor in the shipping and gst.

    I don't mind putting overseas prices down, provided it is from reputable online sellers like bhphoto, etc. More information for CSers so they know their options. Maybe putting all the REPUTABLE overseas pricing side by side will give some pressure to oly singapore for the price revision.

    exactly. That was exactly WHAT I was trying to say. Overseas pricing is not a good guide. I don't mind putting the item down as obselete or discontinued or out dated, etc. I am against putting down the overseas pricing as there are hidden costs.

    The purpose of putting up a price is to show that an item is still available though unattainable in the local market.

    I think the user should do their own calculations as far as shipping is concern. I have followed the format in the other threads also (some display Yen, US prices but do not mention shipping). They should also weigh the risk of an item not delivered as advertised. Wrong shipments, warranty, insurance, customs have many combinations.

    Let's wait for a few more people to comment.

    Can we consider only the local pricing? The reason buying the lenses,body and other accessories from the overseas is not in our control. The customer can buy the item from the different countries and different shops. Each country and shop may sell the item for different prices either in promotion or increase the sales in their shop. And also bringing the item from the overseas the custom, shipping value differs for each countries.

    If the item is discontiued or out of stock is not our hand, what we are trying to inform the fellow olympians this is the best price to get the item from the local shops. This prices are estimated one. If you do good bargain, you will get less than the price listed here.

    My suggestion is, it is better to list the local prices only.

    Second to list local pricing. More accurate and realistic for buyers/sellers' to compare quotes in up to date SG market. Overseas pricing may add on as additional information which is more beneficial for MO consideration on discontinued or models not available in SG.

    Myself as a prospective buyer would be more assured with local purchase and than getting it overseas...the hassle to monitor and be worriesome if goods received is in good order. Likewise for selling, it would be more reasonable n straight forward if my potiential buyer make comparison to local pricing if my items too are purchased locally.

    The oversea price for Zuiko Digital ED 50-200mm F2.8-3.5 at SGD$1215 very attractive

    no, not henrys. cameta.com. the prices for the e1 are esp the e1 & shld2 combo.

    Anyway, they do not accept CC AND any form of payments from Singapore (kena blascklisted). I spoke to them twice over the phone for my other orders which they had rejected.
    Hence, vpost no use.
    vConcierge ok ie they buy for you and you pay them commission S$10 + 2% of invoice.
    Still works out cheap but lag time is 1 month. They need 2 weeks to :
    - contact the merchant,
    - clarify/confirm product & price,
    - revert back to you to finalize arrangement & costs then etc...
    and another 2 weeks to:
    - receive product from merchant
    - consolidate shipments (with other items) and send to Singapore

    Payment can be in CC, COD or GIRO. Good for those with no or dun wan to use CC.

    Kindly advise when you're available or SMS me at 96989292.
    You have to go through the threads where the members state how much they bought it for. Genreally:

    (a) Oracle for best service and price. May take some time to get the stocks as he will need to order them. All items are new and have never even been opened, so you know they were never "returned".

    (b) CP for widest range but slightly higher in prices. If you need stuff now, they have ready stocks most of the time.

    (c) MSColor. Some items are higher, some lower than CP. Only stock the more popular items.

    photography is not a cheap hobby. but you can prevent unnecessary expenditure but being a smart consumer. check out prices for general items and market rates for specific items that you want to acquire. alot of your questions have been asked before by others, there is a very good sticky thread for newbies in the newbies section http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=245883

    the consumer's corner i mentioned is a good place to start, spend some time reading up on the prices and blacklist shops. imho, do avoid most shops in sim lim sq, save for orient photo

    uv filters can go from $7 - $30 depending on thread size. if you are looking for one for your 14-42mm kit lens, it should be around $10 for a hoya. there's no fixed prices, but there is the market rate for most item. shops in town (e.g. CP) tend to have slightly higher prices, but they also do give discounts off your final bill as well.

    there is a wealth of information available in CS, just spend some time reading or do a search for your doubts. cheers

    On the Olympus sites' spec sheet, it has a image size enlargement ratio of 0.5x, which is the same as that of the 50mm Zuiko Digital Macro f/2.

    But note that whole enlargement ratios are the same as that as the 50mm f/2 lens, the sharpness and optical distortions may not be as good as that of the dedicated macro lens.

    The 1.2m to 0.96m minimum focusing distance may make it a bit unwieldy to use at close range, but shouldn't matter if you need to approach nervous creatures that tend to fly/run away if you get too close.
