    But you can use credit card, right? Here if you buy from local shop with credit card, most of them would charge you 3% too...

    Would be great if can order online and pay cash upon collection, and tell them the camera/lens is for using in Malaysia (to avoid gst?)

    Actually I think only Pentax prices if without GST is attractive, for Nikon I rather go to DDE, cheaper and got 2% cash discount.

    That's correct, either pay by PayPal or Credit Card will still incurr the 3% to 4%.

    Have to pay GST if the invoice shows local address unless document shows for export.
    From what I know, the dealer who imports will pay GST. If the dealer's company is not GST registered, he cannot charge customers GST, the dealer just pass on the GST paid for the imports. Right

The camera would still be covered by Pentax Singapore warranty and you'd save quite a bit this way

    I wish I knew someone in Malaysia who could help me order something, the DA21/DA40 Silvers are really tempting
    Bro are the sliver DA21/DA40/DA70 limited already available or must try luck order first?

    They actually have the K-r Bonnie Pink limited edition for sale on their site at S$1765.50 (their prices are inclusive of the 7% GST).
    Looks like this online shop might increase Pentax profile in Singapore with the limited editions!

    And their White K-r kit is only S$845.30, cheaper than the Black K-r at S$920.20.

    I guess you can order first? There are only 500 pieces available for each DA Silver Limited, better order first.

    BTW, I've ordered the DA21 Silver already

    I bought a DA 35mm f2.4 from them too. Good service as they delivered the lens to my door step when I opted for the $10 delivery service, which is reasonable.

    For purchase made outside Singapore: $320.00
