    Onestop are excellent! - I'm presuming you are asking about virtual shopping rather than actually visiting them in person! I have bought two lenses from them. They were delivered faster than some UK websites.

    Agree with Ben (scutter) - OneStop Digital are first class and I use them a lot. Four working days to your front door?! That's better than some mainstream UK suppliers and the price quoted is the delivered price - no ludicrously inflated, additional shipping costs. VAT and Duty is all protected too - read their T & C's.

    Dave,

    I think I have written on this before. Depending on your requirements there are a variety of options. As a start try the two main chains:

    - Fortress, shops all over the place and they price. Good one in the Ocean Terminal just as you come off the Star Ferry from Central. You can also check prices
    here.

    - Broadway, the other major chain in HK and can be found on the same floor of Ocean terminal. Actually, there are a number of outlets here and keenly priced. I got various offers for things I wanted by shopping around. No, not bargaining, just different outlets had different deals. All these outlets will be priced and were happy to let me handle stuff as well. They do international guarantees.

    If you want smaller boutique stores (this is HK, shopping darling!!) head over to Central and up to Stanley St. There is a great Nikon branded place, Hing Lee, just off the Cochrane St elevator.

    Other places on Stanley St include Everbest. Walk up from Hing Lee to M&S. Yes, of the underware.

    Beyond Ocean Terminal and Harbour City in Kowloon (they merge, I always get lost in them) you can go where only the brave dare tread, Tsim Sha Tsui. Nathan Rd is your main strip with many side roads with electronic shops. Very little here will be priced. You expect to bargain, may end up with not quite what you expected, don't expect an international guarantee and for goodness sake, check the box before you leave the shop. “Oh, sorry, that will 2000HKD for the charger . . . didn't realise you wanted that sir.”

    Then of course, unless you are away for (I think it is 6 months) you are liable to duty on your way back in to the UK.

    Don't spend forever tramping around to save a couple of hundred HK dollars. It's a great place to take pictures . . .

    Hope that helps,

    Ben

    If you're planning to avoid paying the duty and VAT, I'd go the whole hog and nick one from Jessops or from somebody's car. Much bigger savings.
