  • Negotiate the price: Some camera shops in Hong Kong are willing to negotiate on the price, especially if you are buying multiple items or if the item is a floor model.
  • Check out street markets and small shops: While large camera shops are great, don’t overlook the smaller street markets and shops. These places often offer great deals and discounts.
  • Compare prices online: Before making a purchase, compare the prices online and see if you can find a better deal. Some online shops offer free shipping and/or cash on delivery in Hong Kong.

Comment: I am sure you are no stranger of Mr. David Chan. He featured in different coverage including Bigheadtaco’s video. It is such a nice camera museum. You may find rare gems in there but price is also relatively expensive. He might not sell even if you want to buy from him.

Comment: Every time I pay a visit to Jason, I’m always enlightened with new insights about Leica lenses and its fascinating history. In addition, he has the Nikkor 50mm f1.1 lens that has caught my attention once again. The ambiance of the place is incredibly spacious, complemented by delightful coffee and a cosy corner for audiophiles. Furthermore, Jason’s shop boasts an impressive collection of premium exotic Leica cameras and lenses, including the renowned Leica Summilux 35mm f1.4 11873 and the original Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.2 asph lens. Not to mention the assortment of original Leica black paint cameras and Kanto repainted cameras and lenses. If you’re genuinely considering investing in Leica equipment, his shop is definitely worth exploring!
