Is the Nikon D70 available at Changi ? Whats the price ?

Check for the recommended retail prices for the D70, which is likely to be the price you will get at Changi. If it is within the tourist/transit area, the sales tax (5%) should not apply so wysiwyg where the recommended prices on nikon's web site are concerned. Take note that the body does not come with an int'l warranty, although the kit lens does (strange, but true). This applies even if the body + lens are packaged in the special box for the kit.

If you venture away from Changi you can get a cheaper price, but it depends how long you have to spend in S'pore.

Hi , be careful of this black shop in singapore. "I HAVE BEEN CHEATED" $390 which cost only $89 for the vitacon lens.

i have bought vitacon 0.45 x wide angle with sony dcr-pc330e video cam and VF-R37K Filter kit in singapore at (song brother) 1 rochor canal road sim lim square #01-59/60. The sale man (name call Stefan gwee) char me for the total price of the three item at SGD$2614 including 5% GST.(TOTAL AMOUNT IS $2490) on 4 jul 2004.

The sony dcr-pc330e video cam in sim lim square shop cost about Sgd$2050 (GST not include ) as i tour around to ask for it price. The sony dcr-pc330e video camcorder itself which (song brother shop) charg me about Sgd$2050 (GST not include). Then VF-R37K Filter kit about SGD$50 GST not include. Which mean the vitacon 0.45 x wide angle cost me about $390 GST not include.

I then found out that the Vitacon 0.45 x wide angle in another shop at sim lim square (Edison electronics 01-43/45) cost only $SGD89 for the same models of the lens.

i have been cheated. i still have the receipt on my hand to prove that these three item cost me SGD$2490 GST NOT include.

As i look carefully for the description on the receipt it is written as (GROBARTING 0.45X WIDE ANGLE VIDEO LENS).
