    I read from a Lonely Planet Guide that there are a few on Stanley St.

    Dunno if that might help...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    I concur with the recommendations. Got my 70-300 ED there at a relatively cheaper price.

    Wing Shing ( 永成 ) will be better. Sales and service not bad.

    Man Shing ( 萬成 ) salesman got attitute. See foreigner will entertain. Local / Chinese will ignore.

    Hi latmo,

    there are at least 2 shops in TST that CSers have been using for MOs...

    I think you are referring in general to the shops along Nathan Road and around TST area with the bright neon signs that are practitioners of bait and switch...

    cheers

    天祥and新三共

    and MongKok has more reliable shop ~
    but this 2 shop at mong kok should avoid too 專業影音 and 龍都

    but anyway the Wing Sing and Man Sing is 2 of the most reliable camera shop in HK
    MongKok Camera Center has change the name to CitiCall now and become a chain store

    天祥is more for tripod , bag and accessory

    CitiCall's price isn't too cheap from what i know. was there just a few months ago. As for shops in Nathan, there isn't much bargain to get. Or at least there is little nikon stuff to get since i only ask nikon stuff.
