Hi fellow shutterbugs,

Im about to travel to HK and Shanghai on a holiday. Im looking at buying possibly an EF 16-35mm f/2.8 II L lens.

a) I was wondering if anyone knows if there is general difference in price between buying in Shanghai, China Vs. Honk Kong retail prices?

b) Also, is buying direct from a (physical) retail store there cheaper than buying HK online?

c) can anyone recommend any good trustworthy retailers from those cities?

Many thanks
Jim

I was in HK when I was in the Navy - winter of '72. I bought a Nikon F2 body and several lenses. What I remember is that the Navy had a list of reputable dealers. If you know someone in the Navy, they might be able to get the list for you, (if the Navy still makes the list).

You might consider emailing a couple of ebay power sellers from each city to see if you can arrange to meet with them, or at least to give you a price point when you visit the retail outlets. Just a thought.

Sounds like a good idea pragmatichack, I will contact a few sellers from Shanghai and HK, and see what they come back with
