Add the 70-200mm lens to the package.

Canada:
A700 $1,600 CAD
70-200 $2,600 CAD
Package price $4,200 CAD

At 93 cents to the US dollar = $3,900

US Prices
A700 $1,400
70-200 $2,000
Package price = $3,400

That's a $500 difference before sales taxes.

I'd like to support Sony Canada, but that differential is just too
great.

Maybe there are higher import tariffs in Canada then the US. I have no idea if that's true, just a speculation. I'm pretty sure that's part of the reason for higher European and UK prices though.

Good luck and good light.
