Any good lens store in Detroit area?

Hello all!
I'll be in Detroit for a few days for business travel, and may have some time for shopping. I'm thinking about a Sigma 10-20, or Tamron 10-24 or maybe a flash unit. Couldn't find any "known" retailer in the area, can anyone help me indicating a place I may find what I'm looking for?

I live in the Detroit area, Oakland County. Only one store I know of has anything Pentax and thats "Camera Mart" on Telegraph Road Pontiac MI. - The Web's #1 Source for Camera Equipment

The last time I was in Camera Mart they did have the K-7 and some lens (this was before K-5). But I would call them first before driving too far to see what they have you may be interested in.

There are a few Ritz Camera shops around as well. They usually don't have Pentax stock.

Can you believe I bought 80% of my system here local at Adrays Camera that's now out of business. They had a large selection of Pentax gear relatively speaking...

Take a drive across the river to Windsor, Canada. Henry's has a store there and they carry Pentax.Maybe Ned should take some lessons from Pentax Canada... Sorry, but there are times when I would like to walk in to a physical establishment and see something with a Pentax label on it.
