    Wing Shing in Mongkok has a good reputation but also check the large chains like Fortress and Broadway (they have also outlets in Mongkok).

    For online prices / reference check here:

    I don't know where you are coming from UK?... US?, but I wouldn't assume HK camera prices will be cheaper.

    where are you flying from? yea, do not assume shopping in HK will be much cheaper than most of Asia.
    i can list a few internet sites i shop at when i buy camera gear. no tax, free shipping and the comfort of knowing that Nikon's limited warranty is affective within the country of purchase.

    Thank you all for the replies.

    I am from Kuwait. There is a big premium between US and our local price.
    I do ship it from US when it comes to expensive gadgets like camera
    and accessories.

    Those links are useful. The big chain shops place an extra premium on
    standard price, right? I may miss warranty on camera body, but lens will be
    covered by international warranty, I presume.

    Nikor lenses WILL NOT BE COVERED. you must specifically ask Nikon about this. i cannot say nor guarantee any thing.
    any ways here are the links, i shop at: Digital cameras, all other cameras and everything photographic from Adorama Camera - B&H Photo Video Digital Cameras, Photography, Camcorders

    since you are Shopping from Kuwait, no tax can be applied plus those sites resell items cheap, compared to RETAIL. as for shipping costs, im not sure.
    good luck!

    Not necessarily, but as anywhere else you need to compare prices. You can also ask for a discount at the big chain stores, if they are reluctant ask for free accessories like spare battery, memory card, bag etc. (in case you need/want such).

    covered by international warranty, I presume.
    Normally yes. To be sure check the warranty card before you buy.

    If that is so then explain to us all why my Nikkor lens, purchased here in HK, came with an international warranty card even though I didn't ask Nikon.

    Thank you for clarifications.

    Today I managed to find this site, pretty useful.
    Recommended Camera Shops in Hong Kong « The World According to Roland

    I found this camera shop site.
    萬成/æ°¸æˆæ”å½±å™¨ææœ‰é™ å…¬å¸

    Could anyone please find price of D7000 (body) from this site? Google translation is not really helping.

    Thank you.
    to get the info, I need.

    ok then, scan the warranty card and post it here, so we all can read it and confirm Nikon WILL honor transactions outside of purchase country and then further guarantee warranty.

    here is the warranty card included with my purchase.

    Firstly prove that your scan is from a warranty card for a Nikkor lens.

    Secondly I can save my time and instead of scanning my card just post a link from the company that you supposingly work for to prove my point:

    All Nikon Film Equipment (listed below) are covered by one year international warranty(otherwise stated).
    Compact Cameras [35mm]
    SLR Cameras [35mm]
    APS Compact Cameras [IX240]
    APS SLR Cameras [IX240]
    Nikkor Lenses
    Nikon Speedlight
    Film Cameras' Accessories
    Binoculars
