I bought my camera set at Wing Shing at MongKok, however, you may need to note that the warrenty of the camera covers only in HongKong (2 years) and China (1 year). According to my relative in Hongkong, Wing Shing have good reputation.

Next, here is 2 links that is very acurate, I actually follows the links and got my camera system, however, the price stated there varies around 5% to 10%

There's another one - tin cheung, I think. You could contact them via email first to get an indication of the prices before you go.

Tin Cheung is the one I go to most of the time. The shop has moved to a newer location a few buildings away the last time I went (early this year). Sorry, its in my head, but I dont know the address. They sell a lot of Leicas and second hand stuff as well. Generally well stocked with Nikons/Canons as well, and its not as crowded as Wingshing/Manshing (becuase its not in Mongkok).

Probably not. If you want to be safe, just get it here in Singapore. Not worth saving the few % only to (touch wood) have to send it back to HK for warranty repair.
