I will be taking a trip to New York and will drop by B&H Photo to buy some lenses, but are there any other photography shops within walking distance from B&H. Thanks for your help

There are dozens of photography stores in that area, but you might want to think twice about buying things there. NYC has an 8.75% sales tax. That would be more than the shipping and handling charges if you buy from their website.

Coming from a Country and Province tha has a total of 13% tax. I'd happily pay the 9% NY State tax and the price difference in Canada and US can be very wide at times. Any names of good stores you know around the Time Square. I was thinking of going to Sigma4Less but not sure if it's worth my travel time from Time Square. thanks

Sigma4Less is in Brooklyn. It's nowhere near Times Square. And you'd be disappointed in the storefront anyway. See http://donwiss.com/pictures/BrooklynStores/h0067.htm

B&H is at 349 West 34[suP]th[/suP] Street, between 8[suP]th[/suP] & 9[suP]th[/suP] Ave.

Adorama is at 42 West 18th Street, between 5th & 6th Ave.

There are several other camera stores in the area, but they've been holding "Going Out of Business" sales fortwo to three generations so far.

Does anyone know if Adorama price matches with Sigma4less or any other competitor? Thanks

Two other large camera retailers in lower Manhattan are TriState Cameras (338 8th Ave. between W 26th & W 27th Sts.) and Willoughby's (298 5th Ave, at 31st St.).
