HopShopGo received the package on the 18th January 2014 with a chargeable weight of 3KG, but HopShopGo offers a repack option for a slight fee and hence it cuts down the chargeable weight to just 1KG! So shipping just cost me USD$20.32 (SGD$26). I am a HopShopGo Prime Member, so your discount may varies!
Repack took three working days and hence it got shipped out from HopShopGo on the 23rd January 2014 and I received it on the 27th January 2014 via DHL.
In total, I paid just USD$310.31 (SGD$396) for the Sony NEX-3N while Singapore is selling it for SGD$749! I just saved SGD$353.
Do note that if your purchase amount is more than SGD$400 (including shipping), it is subjected to 7% tax in Singapore. You can use the Singapore Customs Currency Conversion to check the exchange rates the customs are using.
The Sony NEX-3N will be replacing my 4 years old Canon PowerShot S95.
I will probably get the Sony E30mm F3.5 Macro Lens from Cathay Photo so that I can take product/gadgets shots with it. The retail price is SGD$399 but Cathay Photo is selling it for SGD$345 if you are paying by cash!
