When u mentioned 'pay by credit card', do you mean:

1) Pay by credit card direct or
2) Pay by zero percent credit card.

I assume it is the former. For 1) normally 1-3% charge. For 2) normally 3-5% charge.
Worldwide recession in full swing, that's why increase price (This only happens in Singapore where demand for everything goes up despite naysayers and financial ruins in other parts of the world) Try going to park at any shopping centres: everywhere full, CTE jam, PIE jam, Shopping centre jam, lenses out of stock, camera bodies out of stock: What recession?:confused:

That's nonsense. The price is going up because the yen is appreciating like crazy.

As long as you get orginal Tokina warranty for your lens, it shdnt be problem.

Well, CP they provide quality service. But to me, can save a few bucks and lens quality the same is ok for me. :bsmilie:

Oh dear... I think they (the shop) made up for the low price of the lens by jacking up the filter price. As you didnt say what filter you got, cant say exact price but I genuinely dont think a SteinZeiser is this high.

Well, moving on, at least the combined price is in the CP price range.
