buying Canon and other camera gear in Singapore?
Dec 22, 2007

I'm currently visiting Singapore.
Does anybody know where to buy Canon lens and other camera gear?
I'm looking for a shop with fair pricing comparable to B&H or Adorama in the US.

Last night I stopped by a camera store in a mall on the famous Orchard st. shopping area.
Pricing sucks and they were selling it way above the MSRP.

You have to negotiate the price and they keep lowering it, but it's still more expensive than in the US.

On the plus side, I got to play with the 55-250 IS.
I don't like the IS that much since it feels slower than the 17-85 or 24-105.
But the lens is very lightweight and ideal for travelling.

They opened the price at around ~ S$450 and went down to $S380 if I buy other stuff from them.

Anyway, I got screen protector from them but I know that I paid wayyyy above the normal price.
