Buying in New York!

Hi everyone,
I'm off to New York in 3 weeks and am thinking if buying a new 18-200mm lens for my Canon 450D. I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend a good photography shop out there please? Thanks!

I only know B&H, but if you Google 'photographic shop New York' you will find several including Calumet.

Thanks. Is B&H any good? Any cheaper than the UK? Easy to find?

Generally the USA has always been cheaper than the UK - however it pays to do your research so you have the Us and UK prices in your mind.

If you do the Google search I gave you it will give you a map of NY with the stores marked on them. I don't know where you are staying, but travel is not an issue other than the volume of traffic, so you should be able to get to most of them easily.

Re: Buying in New York!

Never have been to New York. The only real nation wide chain store I know of is "Wolf camera". Stres that might be in the new york area are "Target and Best Buy" of which carry some lenses. Do a quick check on the net of stores for the lens as I know that there are internet outlet stores there where you could most likely just walk in and buy one. You picked a good lens as my wife has this on her rebel and never has removed it, very sharp to. Good luck and enjoy yourstay.

Re: Buying in New York!

I found B&H to be one of the cheapest and I used their prices to knock down the Orlando store prices that I actually used.

Very good stock levels too if the website is to be believed.

Buying in New York!

Thanks everyone! Looking at prices on B&H website they're $595 with 9.5% NYC tax = $651.53 = 403.73. Jessops in the UK are charging 369 so looks like I'll be buying it in the uk!
