Dear Jacob

You may try YL Camera at Pudu Plaza. (Near Berjaya Time Square)

Best Regards

thanks davors - are they official canon traders or in other words: can you trust them? am working soon in sumatra & my rz is unfortunately to heavy / to slow to do the job with her.

what do you guess: how much is it for a 5D II + 24-70 2.8?

Jacob if you are going through Singapore on the way then you will get a better deal there.

i know scott, but ´am landing directly in kl :( and hong kong aswell is still far away..

but nevertheless, should save around 15% in comparison to berlin..

How long are you in KL? The trip down to Singapore is not that far. You obviously know that HK is the best place but you would have to fly to get there, Singapore is an overnight bus and costs next to nothing.

Have fun in Sumatra, Scott.

What Scott mentioned is correct.
You have your options. :)

If you can go in the other direction, Fotofile at the MBK Mall (4th floor shop) in Bangkok has much better prices than in Singapore. They stock virtually every body and lens that Canon makes, have a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and items all come with full Canon warranty. Highly recommended.
good luck...

Got to disagree on that one. Last time I did all the research HK was the best, then Singapore, then KL then BKK, I lived in Thailand for a while and the import duties on luxury goods was phenomenal, so 5D's and L lenses as well as Apple laptops etc are hammered. You can get lots of stuff cheaper in BKK than anywhere, Acer netbooks etc but not 5D MkII's and L lenses.

And yes I have been to them all, even looked at the 24-105 when it came out in MBK.
