    you can try this link in cs:

    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/threa...ong+kong+shops

    depending on where you going to the Tin Cheung Camera shops in Tsim Sha Tsui are just a shop by the roadside, similar to the ones we have over here and pentax stuffs are limited. Their flagship store there has 2 levels with the upper levels selling tripods, bags, straps and accessories.

    Have a nice trip there.

    Hi,

    For a rough estimate of prices, visit price.com.hk.

    The price diff is not much for Pentax stuff. But the favourable exchange rate now may make the diff look better.

    did some research past few hours, basically pentax lens are about the same pricing.
    but if you looking for samyang or tamron lens, which i will hoot afew back. it's very good rate.
    example a samyang lens cost almost SGD 200++ cheaper compare to SG.
    and tamron lens cost about 50-100 odd cheaper.

    for convertor and accessories, no need to say, i think they are so much cheaper and so much more option.
    i will be going to
    http://www.photoman.com.hk/
    and http://www.tincheungcamera.com.hk due to time constrain,

    so if you guys want any simple item from this 2 shops, i dun mind helping to ta bao. haha.
