A = not necessarily:

As always, it pays to know the prices here and in Hong Kong before you travel. Recently, UK prices seem to be cheaper for some items.

B = I think that lenses carry international warranties, but best to check before you buy.

Re: Purchasing Equipment In NYC

I don't know whether the regulations are still the same when bringing something relatively valuable into this country but in the past it was likely you could be stopped and charged import tax. This happened to my mother once.
Maybe there is a way to check this

Re: Purchasing Equipment In NYC

I believe the goods are cheaper as Tax is not paid if leaving the country,But there is a import tax passing through customs coming back here.
If you are caught trying to evade it they can fine you and confiscate the items.

It is best to buy here for the guarantee I believe.

I once bought something off E-Bay from Hong Kong and on the parcel they put "perfume goods value $12 "
I thought Bl@@dy hell,they have sent the wrong goods,opened to find the right goods though.
Clever these Chinese.

Purchasing Equipment In NYC

I'm currently on holiday in NYC and have just bought a new lens. It was 30-50 cheaper than the UK. I looked up prices on the web first and the prices were exactly the same in the shops. Try B&H photo (massive and amazing shop), 42nd St photo, calumet or adorama. Good luck!
