No clue on Japanese prices, but you can check the price here on www.bhphotovideo.com . New York's best camera store.
As mentioned above, the best price from a reputable store in New York is from B&H photo. Good luck with your purchase.
Remember that you will pay an 8.875% tax on top of the prices you see online. You cannot get this tax refunded.
You could try this site, it's very trustworthy and quick. A lot of people use it for answers on a daily basis
You have to confirm if the warranty will be valid where ever you live/taking the camera.
thats funny Welshtraveller247 as google directed me to this page.
anyone able to answer this question?
Did you read the answers already given? They're still correct.
No one has actually answered the question
I still have no clue about Japanese prices. So BB is right that the answers are still correct.
NO one here is going to answer a question that they don't have a definite answer to. They gave you a site that gives NY prices. Now it is up to you to find the Japanese prices and a make a decision. People on this site will lead you to answers and help you research, however in questions like this--we really do not know. Maybe go to the Japanese forum and ask if they know the prices of the camera in Japan!
