SAR estimates a price of $800-$850 USA. The same estimates in Euros as well, which is a tad confusing as €800 equates to roughly $1100.

It's always like that. Tax difference between USA and countries in other continents.

about 20% VAT difference, plus usually a 20% penalty for EU customers to subsidize the US market ...

Sony is usually one of the few exceptions though, their EU prices are often closer to the US price (for Nikon and Canon a EU customer often pays 20-30% extra, taking exchange rate and taxes into account).

Interesting, I never paid attention to those surplus you're mentioning. I guess I should be breaking the costs down more often... though it's not like I often buy cameras.
