Glad everything works out. Which shop you ended up going to? Any new recommendation? Mong Kok or Central area?

And any rare chance that you run into RiceHigh and say Hi to him when he is barking with Pentax issues on batteries and the like. I wish we all have a head shot of RH posted in every store in Hong Kong that sells Pentax gear.

Thanks,
Hin
I went upstairs on Mongkok Computer Centre, the first floor up, turn a sharp right into a 180 degree turn right after reaching the first floor. First shop on my right. It's a camera specialist. Had me waited for 10 minutes and back came a $150 third party battery. So far so good.

Central Area has some camera stores too but last I went there I only bought some silica gel. HKD $56 for 2 150ml bottles. Those change colours and are reusable. Bought it 2 years ago and I still haven't run through 1/7 of the first bottle. Highly recommended.

Does anyone know if the K-mount macro bellow is available for local purchase in HK, and Tenpa eyepiece magnifier, too? I saw them on eBay and DealExtreme and were listed as from HK. Just like the z434 batteries, those too seem to be slightly elusive...

Go to Mong Kok in Kowloon, you will see several camera store there they all have Pentax stuff
Agree; Mongkok is probably the best place to pick up some photo accessories.
