    I've not dealt with them, but Map Camera and Fujiya are well-known. Most large camera stores like Yodobashi also sell used cameras, though I've never seen Konica RF there. If you're in Osaka, Tokiwa Camera in Nipponbashi is the place. Teshima-san speaks English, and tell him I sent you!

    that is a great list...i probably have been to half of the list in Tokyo. amazing places to find used Leica, Nikon and just about whatever you need. then there is always a stop to pay homage to the great Yodobashi (and get the battery changed in my Seiko watch while i check out the upper camera floors).

    Help for translation.

    I'm reading many of Your posts here. Unfortunately I can only read (and write) english with a translator. Do You plan to ad an automatic translation to the forum?

    I checked out Fujiya last November. Really good prices if you know exactly what you're looking for. Saw a Leica M6 in good condition for $880 USD (compared to the avg price of $1300 USD on Ebay/KEH).

    2 things to be aware of:
    1. Fujiya is 2 small stores located near each other. I think it was segmented by gear (medium format & leica in one store, canon/nikon in the other).
    2. Fujiya is out of the way. Most of Tokyo's famous camera stores are either walking distance to each other or a few subway stops away. Fujiya is in the NW area of Tokyo, quite far from the other stores.
