With online shops and ebay anyone still buys from camera shops?
In Sydney CBD we once had something like 11 shops with two having enormous floor space. I think we now have only three left.
I buy most from ebay. With cheap made-in-China accessories I usually buy more to keep for spare.
I must say camera shops are a good place to physically handle and check up a camera or lens you want to buy online. However they have to pay for the rent and wages too.
