Thread: Is it worth buying Sigma lens in Japan?

  1. #1

    Default Is it worth buying Sigma lens in Japan?

    Hi Cser
    May need some help from those who have been to Japan or frequent Japan.
    I'll be going in 2 weeks time for work and will be staying at Hotel New Otani.
    Questions:
    1) Is Sigma lens cheaper in Japan than Singapore? I'm looking for the Sigma Tele HSM 500mm F4.5
    2) Is there any Camera near where I stay?
    3) Is there 2nd shop around Hotel New Otani?

    I'm asking because I've got only half day to grab whatever I need and head back to airport.
    First time going Japan and most of the website are in japanese so very hard to navigate.
    Any kind soul can share with me?

    Thank you in advance.......
