mais51: Now where is that Nikon 80-400 ? in stratosphere somewhere - wake up Nikon @1.5 times the cost of the similarly spec Canon is just not acceptable.
This will be an ideal combo with 7D2 for me.I'm taking onboard the suggestion to walk closer but whenever I try to climb over the fence at NASCAR and F1 its generally frowned upon.Looking forward to owning it.
Continued from below......This will be really obvious as we transfer more business online, no way the UK government will allow unpaid Corporate Tax either, the initial bad press for Amazon, Starbucks, Google etc is just a toe in the water.We will end up buying without trying, then returning under Distance Selling etc, which will increase costs, together with the new taxes, to put back the 30% extra we used to save online instead of buying in a shop.Also overall less people will buy without showrooming first, so even less sales profits than already, so even causing the collapse of the brands.
The only way Canon & Nikon would operate stores would be to run them regardless of losses, or to copy Apple & Bose and restrict distribution and monitor pricing, to ensure their retail outlets were not undercut by 30% every day.In fact if Canon & Nikon had done this already Jessops would still exist.Maybe Canon will take over a few flagship locations as touch and try then go away and buy types.Either way we can look forward to internet tax levy if for no other reason than the treasury will need to replace lost revenue from bricks & mortar taxes, whether from sales VAT, staff PAYE, National Insurance Contributions, etc, plus a local sales tax will be needed to be distributed to councils to replace lost business rates etc.
