Looking for a lens in HK
Posted March 16th, 2010 - 10:42 am by from Paris, France (Permalink)
Hi there,

I'll be coming to Hong Kong in April after a stay in Yunnan, and I need to buy a lens for my Nikon D40x. So, I've been looking for price ranges in HK on the Internet, but in vain.
I'd like to get a Nikkor 10-24 and I'd most grateful if anyone could give me a few hints: shop, price, anything ^^...

Thanks in advance,

Nicolas

Hi Nicolas...

did some quick searching online for you. The cheapest is around HK$12,800 but you may need to slap on 2% if you intend on paying with a credit card (stupid policy with many smaller shops in HK)

Hope that helps

Hi Nicolas,

Check out Shogun Cameras, G/F42, Lock Road, TST. Phone (852)2311 1688. email: hkshogun@netvigator.com. Ask to speak to Denny Cheung. Their prices are unbeatable if you pay in cash.


@ Nic,

Glad to see your prolific and helpful replies to many on various Hong Kong threads but wonder why I have not been so lucky with any replies to my PMs to you.

Cheers.

Thanks a lot for your replies,

There's no way I would pay 12,800 for this lens, for it is more than twice the US price (Amazon US: 807usd/600euros)...

@ Swapan
I've sent a message to Denny Cheung: I'll go there to have a look at it. And I'll be paying in cash.

@ Jimmy
Thanks, this price is closer to the price I had expected.

Hi Nicolas,

If you do see Denny at Shogun, please do tell him that I (Swapan from Mumbai) shall be seeing him in July.

Wish you good luck.

Chers.

Okay,

By the way, I'll be coming to Mumbai around september/october (from Ladakh/Zanskar/Kashmir on my Enfield, down to Mumbai and a little bit further probably).
So see you there Swapan.

Great! Hope to be back in Mumbai by then. May join you on my Yamaha Enticer for a few rides south of Mumbai. And, of course, some photography.

Cheers.

Swapan
