Hi All Seniors and Frens,

I am thinking into buying prime lens and just gotten some e-quote locally from the usual few shops. One question, is it cheaper to buy from Japan or local? Any bros and sis out there can shed some lights on this? And how abt the warranty? Cos my siblings are going to Japan next month.

I have read the forums but found threads on buying from HK only. Maybe my eyes have missed out the part where I am now enquiring.

You can do a quick check. Correct me if i am wrong, but for canon at least, international warranty applies for lens and flash accessories.

Only the body is limited to local warranty.

Warranty applies to all lens regardless.. Only bodies bought in ur own country are well honored by manufacturers for most major brands..

Is the service level any different if it is bought overseas and have international warranty and brought to service centers like Canon.
