There are many such threads already asking this. Have you searched?

In a nutshell: yes there are, depending on the camera, but the value you will get will be much less than selling on the BnS.

Yeah, but it's still a common topic. But the result is still the same: Yes, there are several, especially in peninsula mall, but the money you get for your camera will be a lot lower than in BnS.

Basically not worth it.

Yeah. Not worth it is quite right. Asked about the buying price for a tamron macro lens and the value quoted was about 1/3 of the original price. If you're keen, Peninsula Plaza has 2 shops next to Cathay. Across the road where peninsula-excelsior hotel is has about 3-4 more 2nd hand shops. You could try asking for their buying price.

Think it's better selling in BS section here

Those shops sure offer low price.
