Advise about buying FE lenses in Japan?
Jul 23, 2014

So I notice when looking at some FE lenses, 35, 55, 70-200, the lowest prices on Amazon tend to be sellers in Japan. This leads me to believe these lenses are somehow cheaper in Japan.

I'll be going there in November for about 5 days with 2 days in Kyoto and the rest in Tokyo. Any advise whether I should buy them there? I don't need brand-new so nicely used ones are fine as well. If anyone has exp buying them in Tokyo, any store and/or district advise is appreciated.

Also, is warranty on these Japan only or world-wide? I'm not too concerned since I will likely use my Amex or Visa Signature with CC warranty applied. TIA
