Prices For Canon Dslr Lenses In Japan

Sat Jul 17, 2004 9:28 pm

Hi to all,

in two weeks I will go Japan to visit a friend and for spotting ! I am also interested in a Canon Zoom Lens for my 300d. How much is the 'EF 100-400 mm 1/4.5-5.6 L IS USM' in Japan ? Is it worth to by it there ? In Europe it cost about 1600 Euro (2000 USD, 215000 Yen). Does Canon offer a world wide warranty for lenses bought in Japan?

Cheers

This lens is available in Japan from Bic Camera for ¥216,300 including 5% tax. Since you're traveling, you can get it tax free.

Here's the link, sorry it's in Japanese but if you print it out, the store will match their internet price as the in-store prices are sometimes higher.

Flash your passport, a big smile and they will help you buy it tax free.

G'day
I picked up a 100-400L from a small dealer in Shinjuku in Jan for 206000Y.
Bic and Yobodashi where both quite a bit more ranginging from 216000 to 220000Y.
Definitely not as cheap as Hong Kong or Singapore for L glass.
Mine came with a world wide warranty but be careful as many sell Japanese market warranties only.
Have fun in Japan an awesome place to visit.

Thank you, so I will see and also I will check prices before here in Ulsan/Korea. But anyway, seems to be all nearly same price.

Regards,
Jan
