    Smile Singapore Running Out of MIJ Lenses?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently in search of the following lenses (see below) but it seems that most shops like Cathay e.g. don't have any stock and is also unsure of the next shipment - is all this link to the earthquake in Japan?

    Ddelectronics seems to carry them - but i think they are taking advantage of their existing stock to jack up the price (more expensive than local retails). Besides I don't think I would want to purchase any grey lenses for fear of warranty issue.

    Nikon AF 16mm F2.8D Fisheye Lens
    Nikon AFS 35mm F1.4G
    Nikon AFS 85mm F1.4G

    Any bros that come across these lenses can probably let me know their location and if possible price as well. Thanks!

    Have you tried other stores like TK, OP, SLRR, AP? I see most of these stores still having stock of the 35/1.4G and 85/1.4G

    For pricing info, please refer to Nikon Price guide in marketplace section, or just pick up the phone and give them a call.

    TK had the awesome Ais 50mm f/1.2... It was no longer available in most shops and some shops told me that it's 'Ais' so it's an old lens, so they don't sell such 'second hand' stuff.
