Listed for sale at a local South African online retailer for R16000. Equivalent to $1822 at today's exchange rate. The picture shown includes the collar and that price includes local import duties (negligible on optics) and 14% VAT.
I will be waiting until there is a bit of competition from other retailers and some clarity on whether that price includes the collar or not.
For context, best local online price for a D600 is $2600 inclusive of 14% VAT
