I am going to Japan next month and interested in buying a Nikon or Cannon DSLR. Anyone has experience buying overseas especially in japan? Is the price there much lower than singapore? What about the warraty?

body no international warranty. You might get prices slightly lower than grey prices, that is about it. unless you pick up a cheap 2nd hand body.

Generally yes if you factor in their membership discount (you can sign up on the spot) and tax free if you bring along your passport....also bring a lot of cash becoz credit card will incurr extra charges :thumbsup:

When I was at Yodabashi, I paid by credit, there was no extra charge.

No leh Yodabashi even charged me the tax-free price after I paid by CC. :)
I believe Yodabashi wont give you membership "rebate" if you buy using CC. The membership rebate is something like money rebate that you can use for future purchase. May not matter much if you dont plan to go back there and buy more equipment. Pricelist itself should be the same ...

Yeah I won't be going back that often since I'm not based in Japan. :) But the prices there are still pretty alright. Some are more expensive though.
