Life in Dubai - Cost of Photographic Gear

The cost of a Nikkor Micro AF-S 60mm f2.8 here is about 2600 Dirhams (approx) which is about SGD 1000. The cost of the same lens in Singapore, according to the Clubsnap forum is SGD 738. That's almost like a SGD 300 difference. I had contemplated getting this here then thought the better of it, deciding to wait until Singapore.
Its mind boggling how they price certain goods here. Mac products, Suunto dive computers...I think they follow European standards of pricing.
