Where to Buy?

I am on a trip around the world and presently in the Philippines. I am traveling with an M9 but miss my film cameras and thinking of picking up either an M6, MP or MA to go with the M2's I left in the US.

So, where is the best place to buy in Asia? I will be in Hong Kong during early January, 2016 and can wait until then. Prices used to be significantly better then in the US. It that still the case?

Am tempted by a new MA or MP as I have not purchased a new Leica since the 1980's.

I think the main candidates for film Leica are Singapore, Hong Kong, and Japan. I was in Hong Kong recently and their prices are not attractive. They have impressive selection don't get me wrong, but these days, I always feel like forum prices are better than in stores or eBay. If you're in Jakarta, let me know!

Hong Kong has the best prices but the trick is not to get ripped off.

Not here in the Philippines definitely. I've always found HK to have a good selection. Price wise, it is still cheaper to buy in forums.

Goodluck! Shoot me a message if you want to tour around the big city here in the PH!
