    ah coz i permanently live overseas, only come back to sg to eat/shop etc once every few years. looking at canon pricelist in canon sub-forum, $1770 for canon 400d + 17-85mm lens seems like a good deal and is about same price as sg. buy here, i can settle everything and go to sg and relax.. salespple here also less pushy, overall feel better buying here

    bro, if you want 2 lenses seperate, 18-55, and 55-200, NIKON, go buy a 18-200. i'll be glad to change both lenses with one of yours.

    should try visit HK, their prices are much lower since their gds are tax free.

    xunjas, mm just for curious reasons, tax free = gst free?

    i'm actually heading to taipei + bangkok as well.. any cheap (cheaper than sg) camera accessories to get from there?

    HK is duty free for goods, no GST. No need to claim VAT @ HK. Prices are already GST free. Their prices are cheaper than BKK and TP.

    HK warranty is limited to HK only. Servicing @ SG Canon will incur service and parts charges. I am not sure whether I can purchase SG warrany from Canon. I only heard about service charge and part charge. I din hear about extra service charge from Canon.

    Overseas sets are like Local sets (warranty expired).
