Courst or HN... But then you usually pay full RRP instead of a discounted price.

Honestly? If you can't afford it, don't buy it.

If you got credit card you can go for the 0% credit card installment. Either 12 or 24 mths depends on different banks. A lot of reputable camera shops are offering that. But some may need to charge you a certain % if you going for the CC installment. Only Cathay Photo don't charge additional. You can try asking it around.

Second that.
TS: It's a hobby, don't create financial obligations for things that are not essential. Have you checked alternatives at lower price? Third party lenses and flashes may offer the same or slightly lower features, which may be sufficient for you.

Don't compare yourself with other people who are different from you in many respects.

Some people have ample disposable income, some save up really hard for it. What I can tell you is that very little people pay for their gear using installments.

I believe Cathay photo offers that, but your purchase must be over S$500, call to check again.

What kind of logic is that? At the end of the instalment plan the sum is the same. Depending on the plan you might even get additional costs (latest if you fail to pay the monthly rate in time). Paying cash can bring additional discounts.
