Frankly speaking before the SG to AUS exchange rate, the electronic prices in Aus is $$$$... hence dun see the point of buying there... :(

Hi guys

I'm currently in Parramatta, Sydney right now.

Was at this shopping centre last nite

http://westfield.com.au/parramatta/ourstores/details/tom-saades-camera-house-4176.html

Here are some of the prices for a reference:

Canon G10 - A$619
Canon A2000 - A$259

Prices are quite attractive given the weaker A$ to SGD.

Even if its on an exchange rate of 1.1, its still cheaper than SG. But the warranty is only valid in Australia according to the sales exec.

regards

But not to forget if u spend more than $300 in a single receipt, you are able to have tax rebate at the airport. The amount of take you are able to get back is the amount u spend - amount spend / 1.1.

I think now is the best time to buy lens in australia since lens come with international warranty plus the tax rebate is much cheaper than sg.
