Re: Singapore: Camera Shops

As others have suggested, Alan and Cathy are good places for bodies, lenses, etc. I haven't tried John 3:16 yet.

I purchased a 10D, 30D and several lenses from Alan; a few lenses from Cathy; filters, bags, etc. from both, and they are good to deal with. You can haggle a little, but not much on the high-end gear. A few years ago 2 of us did price comparisons between these shops, B&H, Adorama and there was little difference in price.

There are a lot of tourist shops in Singapore, these are to be avoided.

The Goods and Services Tax, basically a sales tax, increased to 7%, check with the shop on how to get a refund as you are not a resident.
