Mass Order: Canon/Nikon/Lenses etc

I will be heading to HK/China in May and wondering if anyone interested in buying some new bodies or lenses. Some of the items can be from RM500-RM1K cheaper. Let me know which items u wld like to get and I try to get the price from my supplier.

Eg my Canon 350D was at least RM1K cheaper than best prices in KL at that time.

I got some queries via PM. I answer it here for the benefit of everyone:

In HK they sell 2 types of goods.
Local warranty - means Canon or Nikon (HK) will warranty the item for between 1 - 3 yrs depending on which model.
Water goods - slightly cheaper. Means no HK warranty but the shop will warranty for 1 year. Water goods simply means the shop owner sourced for the item himself from some cheaper countries and bypassed the local agents.

In both cases, Canon/Nikon M'sia will NOT honour the warranty cos the items are sourced cheaper outside M'sia and the local agents are deprived of a profit.

However, local warranty or water goods, they all came from same factory in Japan and are not fake goods.

Only YOU, yourself, can answer the question... does the cost-savings justify having a 1-year M'sian warranty? I can't answer that question for u.

If you ask me, I don't care about local warranty if I can save between RM500-1K. In any case, I can still bring back to the shop which I bought from within 1 year. And I can extend this service to you (to bring back your item to the shop).

If you are really afraid, stick to lenses. Chances of a lens breaking down within 1 year is very rare.
