    Just a quick question- I'd like to know where you buy your equipment. If its online, which website and if its in a local store, which one? Maybe you can add some comments about your preferred choice.

    Thanks for your feedback and we'll meet up soon one day yah!
    I buy from online sources when the local price difference is excessive as opposed to other places or for stuff cannot get in SG one. Newegg, Ebay, Adorama, B&H are in the list of online resellers i visit.

    as for local shops...most of the time whichever shop selling the cheapest will be the crowd favourite so no comment on that.

    just to add, when i was using Canon..i frequented John 3:16, Alan Photo, Cathay Photo since in close proximity of each other.

    BG-2 Grip - Hong Kong thru a friend
    FA50mm F1.4 - Hong Kong through a friend
    K10D - second hand thru clubsnap
    K20D - Local Grey
    DA 40mm F2.8 - second hand thru clubsnap
    DA* 16-50mm F2.8 - Local Grey

    if Emjay can bring the prices to that of the online stores or that of www.pentaximaging.com (Pentax USA), I am sure more of us will buy from the local dealers. The previous distributor's pricing was way oof the mark.

    i am looking to buy more lenses locally in future, IF the prices is right.

    K10D - 2nd hand from CS BnS
    FA 50mm f/1.4 - MS Color
    DA 18-250mm - local grey

    I think most of us would prefer to buy locally and support the local economy, but the price must be right. Pentaxians are generally resourceful enough to hunt down the best bargain for what we want. DCEmpire Ebay is selling K-m kit for ~$790 and K20D kit for ~$1200 you should try to match that. We're not too happy when the prices are obviously way above prices in other countries.

    If possible, please let us know what are the results of this survey you are doing, thanks.

    Various..

    K20D - OP
    DA21 - CS
    DA35 - Online
    FA50/1.4 - CP
    Tamron 90 - OP
    Manual lens - CS
    Lensbaby - Online
    Accessories - CP, TK, OP

    Actually it's not always about $$$ that purchases were made overseas. At times availability makes lots of difference too.
