Default Purchasing the FZ10

Hello...I would like to purchase the FZ 10..I was wondering if there has been anyone that has experience with buying in Japan. I will be in Narita in a couple of weeks and I thought it may be cheaper there. Failing that, any suggestions on some of the online dealers. I live in Canada and I had heard that some of the American dealers offered the Canadian warranty. The price difference, even with the exchange, makes it much cheaper to buy from the US.

Bought mine from Ritzcamera online through Borderfree - US$539 + PST, GST, and $15-16 for shipping, total under CAD$850.00.
There are better deals out there, some as low as US$ 475. Just Google for "Panasonic DMC-FZ10" and compare prices. A US warranty is always better (in my opinion) than a Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore warranty. As a matter of fact, the warranty registration website for Panasonic is the same for US and Canada. And if you ever need to send it for repair, it's a few bucks more for shipping.
With Borderfree you can get a good deal now at Etronics, in CAD$.
