Re: Cdn warranty
In reply to Ryoohki, Sep 4, 2003

Fyi, Canon Canada will honour US warranty cameras. My EOS1s came from B&H and I've never had troubles having them serviced.

It's tempting to pick up the Rebel kit in the States since the exchange doesn't account for the price difference granted you'll get hit with both taxes at the border.

Editors note:
Canon Canada has informed us that the manufacturer's suggested
retail price (MSRP) for the EOS Digital Rebel kit with the EF-S
18-55mm F3.5 - F5.6 lens will be $1599 CAN. (Dealers are free to
sell for less)

The MSRP of the EOS Digital Rebel body only will be $1499 CAN.
(Dealers are free to sell for less)

It's the MSRP... si if they sell it for 1549$ they'll be 150$ more
than US price but at least you got the warranty...

CAN for the EOS Digital Rebel kit with the EF-S 18-55 lens.

Where did you get this price? The press release from Canon Canada

http://www.canon.ca/english/index-pressrelease.asp?lng=en&cat=1&id=333&arc=0 states that the price is CN$2000 for the kit, CN$1900 for the body only. I hope you're right--and that price would be more in line with the US price, and the pricing of other Canon cameras.
