To add, the magnifying eye-cup and the orange ccd cleaner (Lollipop).
If the full range of Pentax stuff could really be readily accessible at retail, at reasonable prices or at least easy order, that would really be great! Thanks MJ for making the effort!

Also, original Pentax Lens and body caps. I think they should be some $5-8 if bought from Japan. But bought online, you could easily be ripped off at prices of at least SGD$15!

Hi Ronald,
I'll just touch on my expected prices -- that they be competitive. Not expecting to pay less than or below break-even prices lah, but at least, as you said, 'reasonable'.. as good as we can get in the USA, say. Or such that the difference is not so great.

So that we don't have to resort to grey sets, or import from overseas, as many of us do, because local retail/official prices here are so much higher. (It happened under previous distros... as you can see that from the replies in your previous thread on where we got our Pentax stuff from.)

Looking forward.. :)

Thanks and cheers!

Pentax Lenses
- smc PENTAX-DA 15mm F4 ED AL
- smc PENTAX FA* Macro 200mm F4

Pentax Accessories
- Pentax Image Sensor Cleaning Kit, O-ICK1
- pentax magnifying eyecup 0-me53
- pentax 52mm Snap-On Lens Cap (Center Pinch type which I use for my FA Ltds)
- Extension Cord F5P (Long, 9.5 Feet)
- Off-Camera Shoe Adapter F
- AF160FC Marco ring flash

If you can get this, I also want


It'll be good to match the prices from US + GST + shipping cost (if we bring in from US), and consistently adjusted (like the K20D price in US and many countries have dropped but the SG price still the same!). Even if it's slightly more like a 5-10% premium so that we get local warranty, I certainly won't mind!

ok here's my wishlist.. is emjay taking over distributorship anytime soon? (ie. price revisions) still thinking about where to get that K20D... wrt pricing.. set prices sort of competitively against other overseas sources (e.g. USA, HK, etc) and we'll definitely whack all our gear from local shops. 1.8k for K20D is really way too high!

oh some pentax logo merchandise would be great too.. like the black cap or t-shirts/polo shirts.

There is no way we can match the online prices from the US. We can only compare local prices against US shop prices, plus tax, and top up a bit for stuff like warranty . If we can get that kind of price, most here would happy already :D

Even in the US, many buyers don't buy from Internet. They buy from local shops 'cause it's much easier to return or exchange, and probably service too :)

Actually, that's what I mean. Pardon me for not being clear, and thanks FW for elaborating! :)

Any newly released Pentax body.
smc PENTAX DA* 60-250mm F4
smc PENTAX-FA 31mmF1.8 Limited
smc PENTAX-FA 43mmF1.9 Limited
smc PENTAX DA* 55mm F1.4
smc PENTAX-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited
smc PENTAX-DA* 200mm F2.8
smc PENTAX-DA* 300mm F4
FA* 80-200 mm, f/2.8 ;p

A price that is reasonable (i.e not with the 30%-50% premium over US prices that exists currently) is okay. I always prefer to try out the specific lens/body before I buy, and paying a little extra over US shop prices for this convenience, is not a problem, especially if it comes with the additional benefit of supporting the local economy.

A black cap with red stitched lettering that says 'PENTAX' would be nice.:thumbsup:
Or a rain jacket with the same thing printed on the back.

Free publicity for Pentax, and we pay for it.:bsmilie:
I would definitely buy both the above.
