i've been hunting down for some lenses in B & S, particularly 35mm dx f1.8 and 90mm macro (tamron). i've asked around shops for brand new ones and for the 35mm the lowest i've been quoted for is $350 inclusive of GST (lord's in orchard), for the 90mm tamron is $520 also with gst (bally in funan)... i browse around a lot in B & s here in CS, lookin for a good deal for these 2 lenses but most of the asking prices are ridiculously high... like buying brand new! 35mm 2nd hand selling for 360?!? 90mm tamron 2nd hand for 490?!? the seller asked for bidding some more... but incredibly, there are people bidding (for the tamron). are they plain stupid? or the seller is just making it up to sell his lens in a higher price? i just bought a brand new tamron 90mm macro lens nikon mount this morning in allan photo in funan for $490 gst inclusive with waranty (i have the receipt here with me to prove it, i can scan and post it here if need be)... so, for all you people looking for these lenses, buy a brand new one, please don't tolerate these sellers who think that buyers here in CS are stupid, and not doing their homework before buying things (of course there are several who really are dumb, and just buy things not knowing the real price). i wrote this thread 1)to make people/buyers aware of these sellers, please don't patronize them. & 2)coz i want to rant about it!
