You'll need to look around.

Many of them are similar priced -- even the big retail stores.

However, as a warning, do not go to random camera stores in Tsim Sha Tsui as they are known to 'cheat' on tourists and make the price higher than you should pay for.

I would recommend you only buy from an authorized dealer:

You can even call the stores for quotes.

But note that warranty on Nikon Body = local only (i.e. if you buy in Hong Kong, warranty is only valid in Hong Kong)

Lens have international warranty.

You're probably going to save about 15-20% off what you'd pay from Best Buy or B&H....

Warranty is a toss up. I've never had problems, so the grey-market factor doesn't bother me much. For others, it may not be such a hot idea. Return-on-Investment is what you've got to deduce.

I don't know the exact current price, but from some online sources, the prices range from HKD $4,260 - $4,650. (with $4,650 being the most recent price... weird...) You'll have to shop around to see which one is the cheapest.

That price is for the kit sit (includes kit lens) + a few 'gifts', which may include (may vary depending on which store and current offers): 8GB SD card, spare battery, screen protector, etc.

You may have to pay additional taxes upon returning to your country of residence. These could include import duties, state, and local sales/use tax.
