So they have a camera for the same price as BnH but have a whole lot of goodies for free. 

 

So I signed up thinking, oh Ill just need to enter my address at checkout. No go.

 

Yet they definitively state they ship overseas and to New Zealand.

 

Anyone know how?

You're probably on the US store, you need to go via the NZ store http://www.newegg.com/global/nz/

 

Chances are the deal you want won't exist on the latter.

No indeed it doesnt, bummer.

 

So just go with BnH I guess. Saves me $500NZD and thats after import duty and GST

Yeah, it's annoying like that.

 

You could try starting a chat with them to see if they'll honour the deal for someone in NZ https://help.newegg.com/ContactUs

 

 

 

Otherwise bhp are probably your best choice

BH have never let me down. Im not usually ordering cameras, but other accessory type things. Newegg have given me grief on the 2 orders I have tried to place with them so not bothering anymore.

B&H got back to me within 4 hours, 3 times now, Newegg still hasnt.

 

Will a sony camera charger from the US be ok if I use my international adapter, US and UK to 3 prong NZ/Au?

It will list the voltages on the charger. That is the only way to know if it will work. If you are using it in a commercial situation that requires test and tag then it will not be suitable.

Be sure that your warranty is international. Some camera makers restrict their warranties to the country where the camera was purchased.

Beware of warranties. Cameras are expensive and sensitive computers that need servicing, from memory some vendors won't service parallel imported cameras.

And sometimes their pricing is out of this world!
