Sony EX 1 availability in Asia (/ Asia sponsors?)

I am wondering if anyone has updates re the EX-1's availability in Asia (specifically in Hong Kong).

Or, perhaps better yet, is there a Hong Kong / Asia sponsor for DVinfo that I can contact directly?

Thank you!

Yours, Michael

Sorry, I don't yet have a site sponsor catering specifically to the Asian market. (however B&H ships worldwide). I would like to find one very good, highly reputable dealer from that part of the world to whom this site can refer all such inquiries.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for the reply and info re B&H's shipping practice. I think I will continue to try and locate a local dealer before resorting to having a unit shipped to me from overseas.

Perhaps if I am able to find a good enough dealer, they can be introduced to you, and maybe eventually their contacts can be made available to other members of this great site.

Thank you again.

Yours, Michael MK Siu

However, on question being placed on Sony related forum, B&H doesn't ship worldwide since Sony has forbid them to ship their products on other commercial zones.

Michael,

Expandore ships from Singapore - and are very reputable. I have bought equipment from them and they have been excellent.

Not HK I know, but much closer.

BH isn´t allowed to ship to europe, I guess to protect the overpriced EX-1 offers here. But Expandore seems to do - but I doesnt know for shure.

Come on Carlos. Singapore Airlines has a flight to Barcelona via Milano. You take the plane, visit Singapore, have fun, buy the cam and still better off vs paying bloody EU prices and the VAT rip off.
