    According to reliable source, Emjay is very aggressive on pricing because for their import/export background. I hope it is still true for Pentax.

    Just visited Parisilk HV, no sign of any Pentax and the guy at the encounter said he heard no news about Pentax coming in.

    Audio House - no signs of Pentax in their latest full page ad on Straits Times.. although they listed their whole collection of C/N/O/S

    Was there yesterday evening and popped into to enquire about pricing for K-m and 43mm F1.9 Silver, but the sales guy looked at me and shot back, "Eh, Pentax going to go under soon lah. No stocks come in at all. Same like Shrriro, say only but also no official announcement that a new distributor has taken over."

    I am shocked!! After announcing here that stocks will be avaialble and what have we here? Nothing again.

    DUH!!

    I was at CP Marina yesterday. Other than the DA16-45, there is nothing Pentax. DA*200 was quoted $2,000 and DA*300 was quoted $2,450, ex!

    Just called MS Color and got pricing for the following lenses:
    21mm F3.2 $950
    43mm f1.9 $950
    28-105mm f3.2-4.5 $599
    Km w/18-55mm $850
    Km w/18-55mm & 55-200mm $920

    Eh? isn't this the same kind of pricing from Shrriro? Except for the K-m, look like the other prices have gone to heaven.

    The only thing that might interest me now will be the 28-105 for the AF SLR

    looks like HK for me already. Friend told me the 43mm F1.9 Limited Silver is SGD$588 and our dear distributor is $950. Very ridiculous. . .

    add $200 more u can get the FA*85mm which beat the 55 hands down.... add $300 u can get the FA*200mm..., better yet just get the 50mm f1.4 which i think is only marginally inferior...

    yeh... with this pricing, now we stand toe to toe with all the others...

    I went to OP and they said once they clear the pentax stocks no more will be coming in as the sales is too bad.
