Support our own Turntable Guy - has much more than just turntables!

71 Durban Rd, Mowbray, Cape Town, 7700
Indeed I would but I'm not really looking for audiophile stuff unless something special randomly crops up, audio wise I'm happy with what I have at the moment and I wouldn't want a bout of upgraditis to flare up whilst perusing a den of iniquity :whistler:

The OP asked about camera lenses etc. so I think Hi fi is not really what he is after.

Noyes pharmacy has an old style photo section and have many second hand items like lenses for old reflex cameras etc. They date from the days when only pharmacies did development of photos and slide processing

The best guy is the Polish fellow at the Milnerton Market.  Last time I was there, he had over 100 examples of old photo gear

I have some old camera lenses that I'm looking to trade for a newer general purpose Canon zoom lens.. something like a Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM

Some of the stuff this old guy has looks like pre WW-II.   He had a restored Rollieflex for sale but that market is not the place to sell expensive kit

If you are going to go to Orms in the CBD, then also try Tothills, lots of old camera stuff, a bit like Noyes.

Thanks for recommendations, keep them coming,

I went to Noyes, cool shop and very good 35mm film processing prices but they don't sell any 2hnd or old equipment.

The Gear Junky in Salt River is pretty damn decent. Every now and then, something really good pops up. http://www.thegearjunkie.co.za/
