    Default Where to buy Ricoh GR

    Hi! Im considering buying a Ricoh GR and would like to ask for recommendations on where to buy. Is it recommended to buy from Amazon and ship it here? Will the warranty be honored if camera is bought overseas? I would appreciate any and all advise. Thanks!

    Why not just get it from T K Foto at Funan? Don't have to worry about whether overseas warranty is accepted here.

    Thanks for the inputs!

    Yeah I would prefer buying locally, its just that the price from Amazon is not that much higher from current BnS prices. I'm also eyeing the special edition which is in stock in Amazon at the moment. I will inquire from local shops today though, to check on current prices.

    Amazon price of us$663 translates to s$820+, then gotta add shipping and gst. Price alone already loses to the s$825 (free sd card and spare batt), let alone you lose warranty and wait for delivery. Just buy from whichever sg shop had stocks at the current price.

    I got quotations from a few shops and it really makes more sense to buy locally than from Amazon or BnS. Thanks for the inputs, it really helps! I'm hoping to purchase my GR within the week and start shooting!

    Sometime ago it was about $1000, but the price has dropped to the current $825 plus freebies. Guess the sellers on bns are still pricing based on mark down from what they paid for it a few months ago.
