hi all,

just curious about buying online from, say, US stores and shipping back using VPost.

is it worth it?

i know got no local warranty, no freebies..... (freebies can easily buy separately)

The US online price is cheaper than SG shop prices......


any one ever bought cameras this way?

Number wise, it is up to the buyer to do the math. Remember to factor in shipping costs/insurance and GST.

As for warranty set or not will is really up to buyer.

I have shipped new lenses from overseas before. When the 24mm PCE was launched, there was a shortage of the lens locally for a while. The overseas set saved me about 150-200 bucks after accounting for the miscellaneous charges.

look for brands that offer international warranty.

if no international warranty, at least brands that have local distributor.
