    Singapore stores are selling the lens at around 720.

    Dunno. I just checked. RRP here is AED1709, after my discount was AED1623, and after converting based on the 2.9:1 exchange rate now, it came up to SGD560
    Nikon // Hasselblad // Mamiya // Fujifilm // Sony

    waaaa that is cheap! that is the pre-sigmia-price-hike pricing... and around HK grey set pricing...

    Even in USA, it is selling for around USD$550 for a warranty set.

    That's what I love about the 24/1.8M and the shitty AED:SGD exchange rate

    Then again, looks like it's going to be some time before I can move back to Singapore

    If only Singapore companies recognized that. It's BS, really - they see a Singapore passport and suddenly it doesn't matter how many years you spent overseas learning global business, I'm still a Singaporean and they'd offer a local package. :P

    This is why Singapore's brain drain problem will never go away. Screw over the locals, but be generous with FTs :P

    sorry for hijack this thread,
    when I made up my mind for sigma wide angle prime lens,
    found out that the lineup has 20/1.8,24/1.8 and 28/1.8 three lenses,
    just wondering which has the best IQ for all these(despite the angle of view)?

    Don't think you can look at it that way. So what if IQ on the 20mm is better than on the 24mm if 20mm is too wide? If you want to compare IQ, it only makes sense to compare lens in the same focal range

    just my 2 cents

    In the end, what focal length do you need?

    No problem.

    Do note that Sigma older versions may not come with the updated information in the chip to work properly with newer camera bodies. I tried a 20/1.8 with my D300s and it would underexpose by 1.5 to 2 stops in matrix metering. Works fine with spot metering on the D300s, and matrix metering on a D70s. In the end I decided not to buy the lens even though it is at a good value and in good condition. Sigma will rechip the lens for you if it is under warranty for free. If not, you are out of luck. So test properly if you are going to get a used piece.

    Enjoy.
