I was thinking of the XE-1 with 18-55 too but am confused about the warranty issues also. Price.com.hk says they come with local HK warranty of 1 year . Is the fuji warranty international ?

Thanks. I see on price.com.hk that says some XE-1 18-55 kit are " water goods " selling at about Sing$ 1350 - meaning those come without warranty and we should avoid right ?

Many thanks. U have some pre-asph 35, some CVs with X-E1. Does the sensor like all this M-mount lens ? Any particular issues ?

I intend to try my CV 35 f1.2, ZM 50 f2 on the XE-1.

All these M lenses n Contax CY lens works great on d X-E1. Guess d CV35-1.2 & ZM50-2 should b good on it too. Happy shooting.

With the continuous weakness in Sing $, I wonder whether it is still worth to buy from overseas.

I'm looking at getting a Billingham Hadley Pro bag in HK. Does anyone know which Tin Cheung outlet is the best for Billingham bags? I heard that not all of their stores carry Billingham.

May I know, is there any particular street/area which sells camera accessories such as Fuji X100 filter adapter, leather half case, strap etc... Need not be original.

Can I check, is it still possible to buy a NEW Nikon 70-200 VR1 in HK?

Or has production stopped and we are limited to the VR2?

Don't think so. It's discontinued for some time. Perhaps some shops may have new old stocks but I wouldn't want to take the risk. There's a reason why the shops couldn't sell off. Also the price may not be good as the shop might have been stuck with a high cost back then.

Either way, most local dealers selling sets from nikon distribution would have rotated the old stocks back to the distributor back then.
