    So far i only did comparision between Tin Cheung and Citicall. Tin Chueng (Mongkok) very inflexible... cc payment extra charge, buy more no discount. So i only bought my bag (HKD 4305) with them since this brand like only carried by them.

    Lens + Flash bought from Citicall:
    580II EX - HKD 3130 (bought 2) (Tin Chueng - HKD 3130)
    85mm f1.8 - HKD 2930 (Tin Chueng - HKD 3039)
    24-105mm f4 L - HKD 7590 (Tin Chueng - HKD 7752)
    All with Canon international warranty

    Total cost is HKD 16780 but the sales person (Jason) gave me a further discount to HKD 16700.

    Citicall dun charge me extra for paying via CC... Tin Chueng does.

    adding on, the quote given at mongkok and TST branch r diff, ard $100sgd price diff then for the sigma 50mm (i went mongkok branch first, but hesistated. so i decided to go to the TST branch to ask+explore)

    Citicall prices you got are good!
    Tin Cheung's bosses are all in TST. The Mongkok shop is much smaller and with limited range of products. e.g. they don't stock Lee Filters in Mongkok shop, etc. The young guys manning the Mongkok store are employees and cannot make the decision to give further discounts.

    While in Sim City, you should also try to visit the other camera stores. There are a lot of stores selling camera accessories and 2nd hand camera body and lenses.

    Just to confirm mah... I have bought some lens from HK last year and no problems with warranty. I only know that only body must be bought locally to be covered under warranty. Few months back, there's a big huh-ha on Canon SG do not recognised International Warranty or Lens that are bought overseas which caused me to hold back.

    Now that I know that the policy has not changed, I may be asking my friend to help me check out some lenses when he goes to HK next year .
