    Default Have camera/lenses prices gone up in Singapore?

    Prices are being increased by at least 30% here in Australia.

    Just when I've finally decided to get that D90...

    There has been some buzz about increasing of equipment prices here... but i havent seen an increase with the Canon 17-55 2.8IS over the last two months.. since im trying to source one for myself..

    I think that you're getting the increase due to shifts in the exchange rates. I believe the AUD has depreciated significantly over the past few months.

    Im not sure if it may just be with one manufacturers increase since you're looking at Nikon.

    hope this helps.

    i believe it is due to your local exchange rate vs the country of origin.

    So this is due to the Yen gaining strength? Means Singapore will soon see a rise in price also.

    Hi 77, dun buy from CP then. I noticed their prices starting to become more expensive lately. Last few months they were the cheapest, now they are starting to become most expensive. The yen will not strengthen indefinitely. Good to shop around a few shops to get best price. Dun fall fall their 'strengthening yen' gimmick- just an excuse to sell u at higher price.
