Anyone keen to buy stuff from US? I have just check on B&H, and find that the price is more than 100 cheaper than in Sin, when added shipping.

if we co-share the shipping, i believe it will be cheaper...

Think once exceeded $400 u need to pay GST?
And don't forget this $400 including shipping cost too. Let's say if the actual package value is $350SGD, and shipping is $50SGD, you still need to pay import tax (7%). There was one time I got taxed because of this :(

U need to check properly...
Usually if i buy frm USA then I calculate the total amt include shipping, GST etc..
Some after all these r still abt 100plus cheaper as compared to Sg...
But some r not really worth it...

Mee too... But there were times when cost @ 790 USD and no tax :bsmilie:

I think its random checking and if you are lucky there is no GST but if your item is picked up for the "random" check then the above $400 apply :sweat:

by the way does stuff from US come with int warranty? at B&H they have some 3 and 5 years warranty but I believe those apply to US and not pentax warranty right? Which site sells with international warranty?

I'm new here.

Oh, i didn't know that this can be done. Need to send email pentax tonight. As for whether to buy or not from USA, my decision is actually base on availability. If you can't find the lens in SG, then price will no longer be a factor, right?

ordered from adorama before. they ship very fast. order will probably take two days to reach you. as for GST, you have to pay that for any purchase over $400. the fedex guy who delivers the package to you will collect it from you.
