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).

It´s very funny when people in the US complain that $800 is high. A $800 camera i the US costs almost $1200 in Sweden…….
