Second hand equipment shopping in Bangkok

Recommended Posts

Mega Plaza was known as Merry Kings before the renovation. 

 

Across the street, and just north, Always One mall used to also have quite a bit of equipment, back when it was known as Phirom Plaza.
 

There are a few other good used shops in the surrounding area.

Thanks so much for this info about the shopping center.

 

I went there 2 days ago and found a mint condition/low shutter count Fuji X100T, got it for 25.000 baht, including the original box and all the accessories + 1 spare battery.

 

 The X100F cost about 47k baht here so almost 1/2 price, and with my limited use/skills, the T is good enough for me.

Try also AV camera a short walk from Saphan Taksin  BTS Skytrain, not a massive selection but quality stock in excellent condition and also Fotofile outlet on the ground floor of MBK, quite a lot of older manual lenses in there.

There are a few other shops in the neighborhood also.

Thank you. I checked out Mega plaza yesterday.  Although I did not buy anything not to bad prices, lots of good slectioin.  I was looking at lens and it can get very confusing with different generation lens looking almost alike so it is definitely good to do your home work before going.  I wanted to buy a 7-200 lens  I saw a cannon one that was at a decent price in good condition.

At one of the nearby shops, I picked up a like new Canon 1.4 extender, series II, for 5,000 baht, a third the retail price. It has served me well for years.

Hi Curt,  where are the nearby shops roughly if I was standing at the front entrance to Mega Plaza ?   I've only ever been straight to the Plaza because on both occasions it was bad rain so not conducive to walkabout and explore around there.  I like to do a day trip on the airport bus from Pattaya so if I get could get maximum value by looking in a few other nearby shops that would be even better.

I really can't remember, exactly. Plus, they come and go.

If I recall correctly, the shop I bought from was just up Chakrapetch from Mega.

"Always One", formerly Pirom Plaza, used to have a few shops.

No problem, I'll have a little scout around next time I'm up.

Thank u so much for all these excellent informations ;

Looking on my map of Bangkok ( Berndtson city streets  )..

I come sometimes to Bangkok; it's far from where I live in Issan but I like to walk in China Town ; so many things , houses, buildings , and people to shoot there..

So, from Hua Lamphong station, go as soon a spossible on Thanon Yaowarat ; and Mega Plaza is at the end of this wide street .;  30 to 45 minutes footing when not raining , of course 😁

 

I'm looking for lenses for my micro4/3 Lumix G85;

would like to buy, if it's possible to find as  second hand lens,

an UGA zoom Pana 7-14 f/4 ( it's a 14-28 full frame )

and a telezoom Pana  100 - 300 f/4 - 5,6

 

and I would like to sell another UGA zoom I bought a long time ago ( 18 y old ) for Canon full frame ;

it's a SIGMA 17-35 f/2,8 - 4 

 

Hope I can find all of what I'm looking for in this district of Bangkok .
