Buying a camera in Sri Lanka?

Zura Burduli , Oct 06, 2008; 12:00 p.m.

Hi guys,

I'll be soon travelling to Sri Lanka and will spend next 12 months of my life on the island. I'd like to buy a new DSLR (either 5D Mk II - if in stock by end of October, or a 5D, or at least 50D... may be).

I was wondering if it makes sense in terms of price to buy a camera in Colombo or would it be better to get one in Switzerland - where I will be transitting by. B&H or Adorama options are not possible - I live in Georgia, Caucasus and having brave Soviet Red Army on one's soil does not necessarily makes international shopping and shipping more secure. :):)

Do U guys, have any experience of buying photo stuff in Colombo? Any advice is welcome.

If you are going to get any of your stuff printed I would use Sarasavi as they have a good quality service.
