Canon prices in Bangkok - am I missing something?
9 months ago

Hello

I've seen earlier posts that suggest prices in BKK are nothing special. However I've just checked

http://www.fotofile.net/productlist.php?qid=12&ban_name=Canon&qmode=6

and found that after currency conversion at 1 USD = 32.5 THB and allowing for the 7% tax refund, a 1D X body comes out at ~ USD 5,300 and 5D Mk III at ~ USD 2,400. This compares with prices in the USA of USD 6,700 and 3,300 respectively.

These are big differences. Is there a catch? Anything else to consider? At these prices, I don't think any warranty issues will be much of a consideration. I have bought a lot of gear from Fotofile in the past (back in 2006), with no problems.

Thanks!
