D800 UK price - way over US
Feb 7, 2012

US Price - $3000
UK Price - £2400

Using for Google for exchange:
$3000 = £1899 is £500 difference!

Adding US sales tax, say 9% for NY
+ 9% = $3270 = £2070 - still £329 difference

Adding UK VAT instead (20%) [No duty on digital cameras, only lenses]
+ 20% = $3600 = £2279 so £120 difference

Come on Nikon - that's hardly fair!

I'll likely investigate if any friends will be visiting the US anytime soon!
