Have not been there yet. How's prices compared to BnS? Someone said quite ex. But I'm sure can bargain :)

BnS is the best place for price. No point getting from shops because their prices are much higher. Due to the fact that they need to maintain their shops as well, so their prices are different from BnS.

Now that you mentioned, it's quite true too. Maybe i've seen too many good deals in BnS and just ignore those overpriced ones. However, if you are willing to camp in BnS, you might stumbled upon some good deals.

Camp is one thing, some stuff are very hard to come by in BnS.

As for shops, I like P&G, Benphoto, TCW are good. Monster Lens (the one besideP&G) has a lot of gems, but not all every thing there are at good prices, as with all stores. So you need to know your stuff.
