It is not a scam, they are selling you a US product at US price with import duty and VAT added at point of sale.

Look at the dollar price vs European prices and it works out to be slightly higher as they are obviously adding their margin.

We in Europe are subsidising low prices elsewhere, the camera costs the same to manufacture, package and distribute but for some reason sells for a £400 premium here.

pThe only scam is that they try to sell you an extended warranty and dubious third-party accessories but you just have to say no thanks and they leave it at that.
