    Hmm... since otc and zoom3 both got quoted $1170, I'll put that down as the quote from Manly. Maybe you need to find Mr Quek like otc said to get a good quote? I know some other stores also got this kind of "issue"....

    Sorry to hear that... perhaps you should contact Emjay direct and tell them you want to get a copy.
    Like the K-7 pre-order where you get to choose which retailer to pick up the camera, I'm sure a similar arrangement can be worked out with regards to this lens.

    Denis is right. Normally sales staff do not entertain telephone calls unless they know u.

    Yes, 1170 I can confirm as quoted. Mr quek is quite resourceful compare to others. But it is good if you can make a trip down and identify urself from clubsnap pentax forum and very likely yoou will be taken of by Mr Quek.

    As I said in the new price list thread, if someone asks for higher prices than those on the list, just tell them the new prices here. If still can't get that price, just walk away and buy it from some other shop. Meantime please call Emjay up and tell them about this. I'm sure they are gonna talk to the shop again and see why this is happening

    Good luck.

    Gengh the "(inc GST)" "(w/o GST)" "(GST?)" on the pricelist seems unsightly to me.
    I suggest assuming a price includes GST, and add a + if need to add GST, and a +? if not sure, e.g.

    K20D MSC $1250
    K20D CP-S $1180+
    K200D OP $780+?

    Is that a standard convention? Like how restaurants quote their set meals as $28++ per person? I think using a + to indicate that you need to add GST is good, but I think +? is just cryptic.... Is there a better symbol for "unknown tax status"?

    No standard convention that I know of. Maybe just a ? instead of +? will do, then clarify what they mean on top or below.

    Actually all local prices should be GST inclusive.

    Yah... but we know that some merchants still ignore this rule.

    That may seem a bit weird, as if the price is uncertain.

    Maybe I can leave the GST indicators out if the GST status is known, that should clean up the look a bit. Let me think about this one a bit more...

    Why don't you ask providers of information to include GST and ignore those who don't?

    Or you can just calculate in the GST yourself... x1.07 shouldn't be too hard
