    Been to BIC camera, v good place to try out all the current camera brands, models and lenses, with no questions asked! Pricing wise not sure how it compares with the other stores mentioned.

    The cheapest is still MAP camera for new equipment. Just ask for their tax free pricing.

    MAP has a good range of used products, but not always the cheapest when it comes to new items. i've compared a couple of lenses and cameras before, sometimes Fujiya in Nakano 中野 (2 stations away from Shinjuku) is cheaper.

    if you need a map --> http://www.fujiya-camera.co.jp/floorguide.shtml

    here's the link to MAP Camera --> http://www.mapcamera.com click on the link [ENGLISH] on the top right hand to see the locality map

    My experience with MAP wrt to Fujiya was that MAP was cheaper for new items by about 5-10% since Fujiya didn't have tax free pricing. Perhaps things have changed since I was there in Oct last year.

    But it doesn't hurt to check both places before committing. They are only 1/2 hr apart from each other.
