Has anyone got any experience buying lenses in Hong Kong. All I knoe so far is that Stanley St is a good place to head for. I am also aware that the warranty may only be for Hong Kong.

Prices are a LOT cheaper than here in Australia. However finding price info on the web is hard as most sites are in Chinese.

For the lens I am mainly interested in, 70-200 f2.8 L IS, I can find online at the same price as at B&H ... but it works out a lot cheaper when shipping and tax are taken into account.

Another lens of potential interest is the EFs 10-22 mm, which is considerable cheaper in HK.

Anyone got any info on buying from there, particularly if they know the details of any good shops.

Sorry, no experience - but make sure they're not spelled Kanon ;P

Discontinued lenses are supposed to be really really cheap there. Examples... 80-200L 2.8 "Magical Drainpipe", the 100-300L 5.6, or the 17-35L 2.8. I'm sure there are others, they will be your cheapest finds around.

Thanks, but Singapore is a very different markey to Hong Kong I believe.

Good tip on second hand stuff, not sure I am in that market but will look out for it :)

And good point, no "Kanon" *laugh*

So. nobody here actually has any experience in Hong Kong?
