Re: Micro 4.3 in Kuala Lumpur

KLCC is an upscale shopping mall, hence the upscale price. A better place to get electronic gadgets and camera stuff would be at LowYat mall, which is not far away from KLCC. Lots of camera shops there so more competative price. Not sure about their after sales service though.

Further out of KL such as Digital Mall at Petaling Jaya is even cheaper. GX1 with powerzoom 14-42 kit was quoted to me at RM2660 (approx USD900) with a 8GB SD, small Pana bag and SILK tripod thrown in. YL Camera price is about the same as well, and they have a store at Pudu Plaza in KL, and another store at Jaya33 Mall, near Digital Mall too.

As for m43 lenses, it is generally more expensive for unknown reason. However, Olympus 45mm f1.8 is quite reasonable at around RM1k at Digital Mall. Hong Kong would be a better place to hunt for m43 lens at better price than Malaysia IMO.
