WHAT !!! $520 for camera plus 64MB from places like Far East.

TOO GOOD TO BE REAL / TRUE.

most likely they will tell you no stock or last display piece or pull some trick.

They can't be "dumb" to sell at such "daylight robbery" price.

actually on the net, the lowest quoted price excluding shipping is $445. Plus shipping it is around $475. The catch is that you will be missing out the local (singapore) warranty.

I was wondering, for other cameras normally the lowest price quoted in singapore is close to the lowest quoted on the net, however there is such a big difference for A40, except for the $520 with 64MB CF card deal.

It does seem to me that A40 is so called "marked up" by local sellers due to it's local popularity.

Den ask him when got stock, he say 2 weeks. after a few seconds, he chanegd his mind and say got stock. ask him how much, he say 550 including GST. ask him include wat he also dunno. I say price is too ex and i want 520. He ask me go buy from elsewhere... I tink its all bullshitting.

$520 + 4mb? Just say only or they want u bundle with something or say not stock? Then recomend you other brand. I wonder it is cheap selling at place like Orchard because the rental is high.
Yesterday I manage found one at Centre Point, at Nikon shop same level as Harvey Norman. They gave me the price 550 for the cameara alone. But I never bargain him. Just thanks and left.
