    Thanks

    Not in Japan but I was just in China about 2 months ago and Hong Kong. Everything was about the same price it was over here. I was hoping to get a good deal but I found none.

    Japan is just all around expensive unless you're going there to buy cellphones or something...even then...Hong Kong is a much better shopping destination for cheap stuff.

    Careful though...there's lots of fake stuff as well in Asia...

    You're probably better off buying it where you're from, cause you'll get the local warranty from Canon.
