To help u decide whether u ought to buy a cam in HK, u need to ask yrself some Qs:
1. Price: currency conversion, is the S$ strong now c/w the HK $?
2. Warranty: some shops in HK sell export sets, they don't come with warranty. Even if they come with an international warranty, be careful as some countries may not "respect" the warranty set bought from a HK store simply because the HK Nikon agent is different from say the Singapore one. Also, some countries will service and recognise international warranty, but in some country the practice is to charge for servicing time and parts (eg US) even if the item is under warranty.
3. Hassle. If the set is broken or defective, are u gonna go back to HK to exchange it? If it is only a store warranty for the set, then u have to die die go back to exchange.
With regards to the issue of warranty, best check with say Nikon Singapore if they have any issue servicing a set with international warranty from Nikon HK.
Hope this helps...
