Thread: most accurate HKD lens price list?

  1. #1

    Default most accurate HKD lens price list?

    hello peeps,

    i'm going to HK in June and would like to know whether there's an accurate reflection of prices online for Canon lenses in HK.

    http://www.ygdragon.net/index.php?pa...ameraprice.htm

    found this but not sure whether it's accurate or not. comparing prices, it doesn't seem to be very attractive?

    what are the lenses that have very huge price differences between SG and HK? also, they must be honored in SG for warranty. i only know Sigma doesn't nowadays..

    ppl who frequent to HK, please help. thanks!

    lenses bought in HK are usually local warranty.

    there are some HK shops that tell you to call Canon in HK and convert....the last time ( 3 months back) i checked with Canon people, there is no such conversion of HK warranty and will not be recognised in Singapore....correct me if i am wrong.

    prices can be S$150-300 more or less with local HK warranty and depending on the models.

    I usually head to DC fever (Windsor House) after checking most of the shops outside and in shopping mall to get a gauge of the prices so i will not get chop carrot.

    also the exchange rate does play a part in making HK lenses cheaper.

    next time gonna get macbook there....


    CANON 5D MKII body only HKD$17600 in Mar (at that time Sing was selling for $3500??)
    Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM was also HKD 17600 and at the Canon centre - HKD19600

    probably need to throw box away......hahaha...if not, kena GST 7%

    not true. canon and nikon have international warranty.

    ts - there is no accurate reflection of prices because of fluctuation of exchange rate. generally hk prices tend to be cheaper than spore 65% of the time. rule of thumb is if sgd1 > hkd5.3-5.5, you are probably better off buying from hk.
