New Sankyo, email newsanky@hkstar.com. Best prices in the world, very reliable in my experience. They're on Nathan Road.

Good luck,

I just received from a friend in HK this suggestion, they said that these people are reliable. Please let me know if they work out, as I probably will not buy through them until April or so.

Out of curiosity, how much better is pricing in Hong Kong? Any examples?

Sankyo Company, Hong Kong

I had them price the Schneider Super Angulon 75mm f/5.6 and Super Angulon XL 72mm f/5.6. Both were in the $900s. B&H Price 1348.00 and 1,532.00, respectively.
