Went out to buy Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8D but didnt manage to buy it firstly most of the shops I went were all closed such as Cathay Photo, Camera Workshop etc. I went to John 3:16 but he got no stock. Check the price and he quoted me $180.
Went to Alan Photo but also closed. Few shops at Sim Lim do sell it but here is my experienced today.
They tried to sell the lens at $195 but since John quoted me $180 so I tried my luck to bargain from them and give me a better discount. They gave me $190 but this time I wasnt satisfied and straight away ask them for $180. They said $185 best price so I was about to buy it then the salesman took out his calculator and show me another price $197 saying price with GST. I look at him and then I walk off!
The next shop I asked quoted me the same price $195 but I asked them if the price is with GST or not and they said nope. So if GST then how much will it be..
Most shops at Sim Lim which have this lens or maybe selling other things use this tactics.
Anyway, I will be returning to any familiar shops in Peninsula to get the lens tomorrow.
To those who know how much is the lens can let me know or anyone selling it off can also reply to me.
Anyway.. Happy New Year to all!
