Buying a camera from Japan
Apr 15, 2014

Has anyone done this? Are there any issues with buying a new or used camera from Japan, other than the warranty? Would you consider buying a new camera without warranty (I assume for used it doesn't make any difference)? Since these days manuals are downloadable in English, that is not such a big issue. But are the user screens etc... in Japanese (or are they customizable)? How much of a discount would you have to receive to take this additional risk, if you would do so at all?
