Thread: Online Stores Retailing Pentax Lenses?

    Default Online Stores Retailing Pentax Lenses?

    Hi to all the bros here... i've just recently convert to Pentax.. and everything was great... The issue that i encounter is that, there are very few stores in Singapore who have a good collection of pentax lenses.... though shops like CP do carry a good range of pentax lenses.. they seem to be out of stock most of the time... As such, i decided to get the lenses online... So.. as the title of the thread says... Anyone got any idea what are some good/reliable online sites that i could buy lenses from? Thanks in advance

    Do you mean local online shops or overseas? Have you tried shops that do Parallel Import like OP?

    For overseas websites :

    I was just at the CP in Marina Square yesterday.
    I must say, they have much more Pentax stock they previously do.
    I even saw a DA70 in stock. But no FA lenses lar....

    Did you see a DA*300?
    Called CP, was told stock will be in next 2 weeks in time for the IT show. Hopefully the price is better.
    K-5IIs, DA16-85, DFA50, DFA100, DA*60-250, 540FGZ II, 160FC, 201FG

    Well, chinese and katakan helps to navigate the site.
    Some katakana: カメラ = camera ; ボディ = body ; キット = kit ; デジタル = digital ; ペンタックス = Pentax
    If you see the chinese characters for "single eye" (单眼 or 一眼) with the camera words, it means SLR.
