Article in the South China Morning Post yesterday about the rising camera gear prices in Hong Kong. Since the earthquake, prices in HK have gone up 10% with most retailers now charging at least MSRP. I imagine the situation in Thailand will be similar going forward.

Hello Moneyshot (& everybody on this thread),

Thank you Moneyshot for the info regarding Digilife store. I just got a very good deal with my just acquired Tokina 11-16/ f2.8 lens. The price is less by 1,000THB compared to other equally famous stores in Pantip & MBK.

Btw, be careful with one guy in AV Center in pantip 3rd floor. He is rude when not in a mood. When you asked him a price of a certain item and he replied what amount you like, better ignore him and ask somebody else. Because in a " Rabid Dog" manner he will tell you to buy in the store that you told him. I am certain on that event 'cuz he did that with a European couple last year when he was assigned in Photovision (4th flr Pantip). That event coincided when I was buying EOS 7D @ Photovision. It was good that his colleague Mark was the one who attended to me. Better look for mark now assigned in Camera & Lens store in pantip.

I am quite upset because he knows that I am a regular customer of their chain of stores. I bought my 7D, grip, filters and 2 lenses in their stores and accompanied some Thai colleagues there who prefer Fortune than pantip. I think the owner should venture in a croc farm to have a proper place for this entity if they don't want to kick him out.

thanks.

Great to hear CMD333, Im glad you saved some money;)

Funny you mentioned the rude guy at AV, I had a similar experience there when comparing prices but ended up not choosing them due to his attitude. Its not hard to be nice;)

The 7D is an impressive camera, enjoy!
