    but if you want to get cheap accessories head to Sham Shui Po. They stock really really cheap stuff.

    its so cheap sometimes i go in and i get tempted to buy something I don't need.

    but hey, if you're coming before oct, pm me, maybe we can head out together..i always welcome camera shopping outings.. =)

    medium format? i think tin cheung has quite a range. well, i remember glancing through and saw quite a lot of lenses that I cannot use..so i do think they have! you can always email them to check..if i stayed on kowloon side i would go check for you, but for now nothing compells me to head over from HK island..heh..

    but if you're heading up before Oct do pm me! =)

    actually how good is this len? and it tokina lens trustable? as my friend told me stay away from tokina lens. I will be going hongkong this Oct. Want to get some lens if they are real cheaper. Been to tincheung before, found that their prices also not that cheap. I think the mong kok Wing Cheng is cheaper. May be it is just that few lens.

    Hmm is that expensive?? 4400HKD converted back to SGD is around 830. I thought the BNS market is selling around $850 second hand?

    I can't find any info on it.. like the shop name of Mongkok Simcity

    Mongkok Simcity is on Shantung Street.

    how to get there is like this:

    Mongkok MTR station - Exit E2.

    once you get out, walk straight.

    you will see a Bodyshop on your left side.

    You turn Right.

    Walk for about 50-60m then at the junction turn right.

    then you will see a cosmetic shop and after that on your right, you will see a rather short escalator. If you need confirmation, step onto the road and look at the building, you should be able to see SIMCITY sign.

    there are lots of 2nd hand camera shops there, and quite some electronics like mp5 players, handphone covers and accessories.....

    its a guy-heaven. and there are 2-3 AV shops too. so yeah, if you get frustrated not able to find the lens you're looking for, you can go let out some steam.

    hope that helps!!
