Great pricing for most lenses!! (Siggapore web store)
Posted By: SyncGuy, 05-07-2013, 10:57 PM

Just giving a heads up to a reliable webstore.
Bought my stuffs from them and very reliable for me.

Perhaps you guys would like to check it out because I believe their pricing are VERY competitive compared to elsewhere.

This website must be from another country with a .sg suffix and the currency in SGD........

Plus, clicking on your link, it shows 1 lens in stock out of 22...........

SGD = Singapore Dollar...there is more to the world than just the US. If you had clicked SyncGuy you would see that he is from Singapore...

It looks like Pentax Singapore has about as much in stock as Pentax USA.

the price seem so low compared to europe !

I mean, the number are the same as in Europe, but with conversion it become such a low price ! (like the DA70 for 599, but 1€ gives 1.6 SGD !!).

Yea.. I'm from Singapore and this store is locate in Singapore.
Pricing listed will be slightly lower since it states (-7% for international buyer).

Oh, perhaps you guys would like to mail them and ask if there's any shipping charges to your designated country.
Just trying to do my part.. :/

The price might be lower but there will be no warranty. In fact, I'm surprised Pentax Singapore will sell internationally. Pentax USA does not...

A purchaser in the US would not get a US warranty.

One thing I find weird about this Pentax site is that they sell the 'compatible' (ie clone) K-5 battery grip, but not the genuine version of the Pentax grip. Seems very poor form.

Oh, and the 18-135 WR I bought from them last year DID come with a hood, fwiw, so it may be a roll of the dice if you get one with the 18-135 or not

I must have got unlucky then, I had to order a hood for it from B&H and it arrived cracked due to poor packaging, lol, at least the lens is performing OK

Hmm... You didn't pay via PayPal? Just curious, coz if you did, perhaps you should have lodged a report for a partial refund...
That would mean that it would be a lot cheaper for you too!

I was/am satisfied with my DA(L) 35/2.4 purchase from the Singapore webstore. Paid with Paypal, free EMS shipping (that must have cost them a third of what I paid for the thing), got it a handful of days later just it was ordered from a US vendor.
