Hi All,

I will be visiting Singapore next month. I am planning to buy a new Pentax DSLR.

Here is what I have decided to buy:
1. Pentax K100D body
2. Sigma 17-70mm
3. Pentax SMC 50-200mm
4. 2GB card + very basic accessories.
(I already have a tripod and a backpack)

I am not really sure I want to go for the 18-55mm kit lens. I have heard that its a really decent lens for the price, but since that entire range would be covered by the 17-70 I dont see the need for it...

I would like to know the best places in Singapore for pentax SLR cameras and lenses ( infact the best in terms of prices :bsmilie: ) . If anyone has purchased these recently, appreciate if you could give the pricing information. I have also heard that the sigma 17-70 mm for the pentax mount.. is quite hard to find. If any members can provide more information on this regard, it would be really helpful.
I had initially posted in hardwarezone.com where I was recommended this forum.


Thanks in advance
pentaxr

Where are you from? Reason I ask is because you'll need to ask for Pentax international warranty when you make your purchase (normally this may take a couple of days). Normally Pentax products come with domestic warranty. Sigma will come with International warranty. Normally I advise OP (Sim Lim Sq. level 6), but most of their items only comes with in-shop warranty.

Visit shops these shops when you come visit;

I am from India. From a service perspective I would say Canon is the best in India, other brands have a very weak presence. So I am not too worried about servicing. ( Just a long prayer before buying :D ) Anyway, I will surely take the international warranty too. (thanks for the tip)

Thanks again for the exhaustive list. I will surely check them out.

Anyone knows the pricing?? (atleast approx figures??)...

K100D with kit lens $860 at Orient Photo with no international warranty - you probably won't want this I guess, they only have shop warranty, i.e. any problems you go back to shop and they'd resolve it for you.

Elsewhere, about $1065 with SD card - less without kit lens.

For the rest, you might want to refer to the sticky in the Pentax section:

Pentax Pricelist Thread

It is probably off by at most a few tens of dollars. Pentax is a good choice! =D Value for money.
