    Hi

    You can try going through our Nikon pricelist to see if the price is right.

    Nikon Price Guide

    There is a list of shops in the thread. You can always give them a call or drop by their shops to get the latest price.

    Do note that some of the items which are cheaper may be grey / parallel imports and will not carry the Nikon warranty. It is important to ask before purchase to avoid any misunderstandings and unhappiness post purchase

    Clubsnap has a bustling BnS section which you can check out as well for 2nd hand or even new goods. There are people who do MO for new products.

    i'm not a Nikon user so i would not comments on the price,
    but fyi, what is posted in Nikon.com.sg is not the updated price (to my understanding)
    if you happened to come by SG for business or holidays,
    you may drop by a few places for viewing
    Sim Lim Square, Funan Center and Pennisular Plaza
    and being a tourist for you, you maybe have GST-tax exemption
    so the price may vary from what you've in Aussie

    DO NOT GO TO SIM LIM SQUARE. Go only to the usual recommended shops... John 3:16 in funan, Cathay in Peninsula Plaza, MS Color in Ang mo Kio

    hmmm... Sim Lim Square just in case if he needed some Computer Parts?
    than he no need to run around Singapore just to save the few dollars LOL
    Reputable Stores will be
    John 3:16, Cathay Photo, MS Color, TK Photo and Alan Photo...

    Alan Photo at Sim Lim 1st floor no bad also - the last time I was there..... But being a 'tourist'.... they might try the "tourist price" trick on you....

    Agree with the rest.... better go with John 3:16, Cathy Photo or MS color.

    You will find that Singapore prices are much cheaper than in Australia. I did a check whilst in Sydney last December but find the price too expensive which I decided to get it back in Singapore instead.

    Just like any place to purchase items, good to look around. The shops such as John 3:16, Cathy Photo or MS color recommended by the CSers here are the more reputable ones.

    If I am not wrong, they do sell local set as well? Perhaps must ask in order to avoid miscommunication

    Anyway, I got all my stuff from there and so far no problem, and yes, its grey.

    Have a nice day.
    Let's get rolling :)

    If you are buying these to be used back home in Australia, you may want a set with international warranty - i.e. you can send them to the Australian Service centres. Else make sure you test the equipment and ensure that the shop allows for 1 for 1 exchange within a week or 10 days. Go to those shops mentioned above.
