Are you already in Shanghai or no?

You can go hunting in the equivalent of Singapore's Funan Centre at the junction of LuBang Lu and XieTu Lu, called Starlight or something.
I usually check the prices on Taobao first before heading down, since on Taobao you can compare the prices all over China.

+1. Please note prices in Shanghai are usually slightly higher than places like Beijing. Prices are pretty much standard in the camera malls, since they know everyone will ask around. And if you want to claim international warranty (Nikon lenses only. Bodies are all local warranty only. Canon do not offer international warranty anymore), you need to ask the shop to Kai-Fa-Piao(开发票). If all you care is local China warranty, you do not really need Fa Piao).

The 2 biggest camera malls are:

星光摄影器材城 (Starlight (Xing Guang) Camera Equipment Mall)
鲁班路288号(近斜土路) (No.288, LuBan Road, near XieTu Road)
Either take a cab there.
Or take the subway to Line 4, LuBan Road station (地铁4号线,鲁班路站). When at the station, Take number 1 exit. Once you come out of the station, you will be at a junction, turn left, and walk around 300m to the next junction. You will see the mall across the street.
Floor 1 are camera stores (bodies and lenses), Floor 2 are mostly accessories, Floor 3 is 2nd hand market, Floor 4 is studio flash and flash/studio accessories. I never went up to Floor 5.

and

环龙照相器材城 (Huan Long Camera equipment mall)
秣陵路3号 上海火车站对面 (across the street from Shanghai Railway station)
Take metro line 1 alight at Shanghai Railway station stop (地铁一号线,上海火车站)
Orient Photo's HQ is in HuanLong and it is quite big there. You can ask any one in OP in SimLimSq for the exact unit number in the mall. covered. Canon no longer has international warranty), you will need an official tax reciept. It will cost you additional 4.5% to the total price. If you want that you need to tell the shop that you want to Kai-Fa-Piao (开发票). If you only need China local warranty, you do not need the FaPiao.
