    Warranty is all for one year, but you can buy extended warranty when you register the camera/lens at emjay's website.

    Do you actually read the replies posted here earlier in response to the SAME question you asked?

    the shops in SG are not offering any freebies. eneloop batteries, charger, SD card and bag all sold separately.

    based on the prices you listed, its all abt SGD$200+ more. I personally don't see the value. u sure 8gb SD card + eneloop battery and charger + bag is going to cost SGD$200 +?

    i would seriously think twice especially about the "free" bag... better to buy a nicer one separately. might cost more, but at least u're paying for what you want.

    there is no such thing as "len". there is only "lens" or "lenses".

    all 3 DAL lenses are very good quality lenses. which package you get depends on your budget and your style of photography.

    18-55: good for normal walk-about, wide-angle, shooting people, etc.

    50-200: very versatile. can shoot people, can shoot things that is slightly further away.

    55-300: goes further than the 50-200 but heavier. good for a trip to the zoo.

    all 3 are sharp and very capable.

    u can get the 50-200 or 55-300 and experiment, or you can just get the 18-55 and save for other more high-end zoom or prime lenses.

    its your choice. no one can decide for you.

    btw peaceful, get the 55-300, it's overall a better lens than 50-200, except for it's size and weight.
    try it and if u dont want it u can sell it pretty easily since demand is higher than 50-200

    No lah.. Ultra is only 15mb/s.. It's only a Class 4 card. The 15mb is the transfer speed or reading speed.
    The one which is the 30mb/s is the Extreme card. Think is class 6 or 10 for the write speed. Can't remember which.
    I find the Ultra fast enough for photo takings and also short videos.

    i wanna get the sandisk extreme with 30mb/s but it's a bit too pricey,
    and transcend is a way better choice as it offeres approx 20mb/s at a fraction of the sandisk's price

    Transcend isn't as good or reliable as Sandisk. I bought a few some time back and the rated speed was nowhere near as advertised. Waste of money imo.

    i know, in fact, sandisk shouldnt even follow the typical rating of "Class"
    since theirs perform much faster.

    in fact, Class10 is rated at 10MB/s and test shows transcend to be running at 19MB/s
    not sure how true it'll be when i get a true market sample instead of test samples

    Default Re: KX vs K7

    class 10 mean at least can hit 10MB/s in writing speed... it didn't cap the speed at 10MB/s...

    that why a sandisk extreme class 10 is "UP TO 30MBps"...

    Hi
    I'm curious as to what the current street prices for the Kx these days?
    Judging from Gengh's list, its very close to the Malaysian prices. I would rather get it locally and have fuss free warranty plus we support Emjay too so that they can afford to continue to expand for the pentax base here.

    Richard, why don't you just get a special one that we don't have in Singapore?

    Metal Brown and Black Grip?
    http://www.camera-pentax.jp/k-x/inde...mulator/200101

    Be Interesting!

    Otherwise, the blacks, whites, reds, or blues just get 2nd hand from BnS.

    If you are getting from JapanExposures.com, let me know.

    haha welcome back bro!
    I was trying to explain that with the prices so close to local ones, why would anyone want to spent time hunting for the Kx overseas? But if I have a chance to go to Japan, I will definitely try to make the best of it by checking out the special Pentax stuff but sigh...
    In anycase, the kx is so much in demand that even in the buysell section, its becoming hard to find one.
