"This is why we charge alot of money, because XXXX doesn't have a store."

I just want them to open one in Hong Kong so next time I'm there I can hopefully buy a "Canon: Delighting You Always" shirt.

Big goals, ya know?
I'm *this* close to switching to Nikon! I swear - I'll do it! Maybe next month, or in a week, or when they release the D ... oh, look a shiny thing!

So I guess the store is opening up today at noon for the general public... I don't have my trusty camera with me but I guess I could take something with the old trusty iPhone if I can get away from work.

Very friendly reps. You cant purchase any equipment there, however they will send you in the right direction of where to purchase your photo gear. They will have a full print shop and they haven't decided if they will do any repairs at the store. They also didn't have the 5DM2 or the 1DX to try out, but they said they would get a manager to get them out of storage and they are expensive, that and the C300. Overall very cool experience as you can try any lens with any camera. They will have seminars for any type of photography which would be beneficial.

Anyway, here are some photos... from iPhone (so they suck)

Are the lenses on that platform display removable?  Can you mount them to a camera or are they locked down to the display?

Why do you guys keep calling it a store? You can't buy anything from it, and that's why Canon don't call it a store. It seems also to be very hard to "experience" a 1D-X or a 5D3 in one of them. Oh sorry, they're only for CPS guys, they're too expensive for eager beaver amateurs to get their mitts on.

I'd call it a store, because "Experience" sounds pompous and silly.   :P

Hi Daniel, the lenses are not removable, however, I was told you can bring your own gear (lens or camera) and they will let you try any of their products (I guess they have extra lenses and camera bodies locked up in the back storage).

It is a demo show room. It's great enough since I can try before I buy. Wish they can open more like Apple does. I do not live in a major city. So I might never have one in town. http://canonrumors.com/forum/Smileys/default/sad.gif
