knowing that pentax isn't exactly the easiest to find lenses for in SG,
just thought i'll share since got ppl pm me to ask.

i tried to source for the sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 pentax mount for quite sometime. 2nd hand market is going pretty slow, people are asking me for 600.
decided to try my luck today, and went to ask technogadget if they have the lens.

and to my surprise, they did:) they just added the pentax mount, upon request

i'm guessing that upon request, they might open up more lenses. got that lens at 613, currently waiting for its arrival.

Yep, anyways, it's a good price (considering most people are selling it from $500-$550 used). Have fun with the lens ! :)

to those who are concerned about lenses and warranties,

for me my most important thing is whether the lens is sharp or not. if the glass sucks, give warranty also no use. (which is why checking on the spot is more impt).

anything else, that is mechanical, i can find fatigue to fix. he is more reliable and a lot faster, than the official local service centers
