Pentax recently announced a price drop for the K20D, not sure if the prices have dropped locally yet.
Looking around ebay, seems you can get one with kit for about $1200 including delivery.

Not sure about local price, but in US I know you definitely should not be paying more than US$900 for the K20D body now if you bother to look around. That's for brick and mortar shops, web prices will be lower. Got a feeling that local shops are not following the trend yet.

do you mean it is almost cheaper by SG$1000?!? or price is almost SG$1000, so cheaper than buying locally?:dunno:
coz last I checked with CP in Feb, K20D body going @S$1665.00 plus GST.

Yah, can't be cheaper by S$1000. Any price above S$1700-1800 will be chop carrot head already...

I just called M S Color and they offer me SG$1790. Still quite expensive. Any other shops might be cheaper?

Don't think you can find any local shop selling it cheap. Their import price is already pretty expensive. If you wanna buy it cheap, buy it elsewhere. Otherwise, wait for a bit longer and see if the new agent is able to lower the price to Internatial standard :)

Other brands? Or other Pentax models? If for other brands, you can ask under their own sub forums :) For other models, they are all pretty cheap now even in our local shops :)

right... so u'r saying that only K20D is expensive here if i get u correctly. is this because K20D is so far the most high end model from Pentax? I just moved to singapore and really want to still stick with Pentax. So far i have 3 lens left with me: the 18-55mm kit lens, 43mm and 77mm, just with NO body:)

The kit plus the two FA Limiteds are very good setup if you get a K20D. But if you decide to change system, I don't think you'd have problem selling them away :)

Because Pentax is changing agent here in Singapore. The new agent is taking over from next month, while Shriro (our Pentax agent in the past three years) will not be carrying Pentax any more.

Give it some time, let's see how it goes :)

The prices for pentax cameras sold here usually won't drop as much as other places.:(

I would keep the two Limited lens, especially for 77mm one with the S/N 3387:)
