RX1 Prices differ significant on market

Why is it still possible today to make such big price differences on markets.
Newest example for Sony RX1, just as known by today, officially by Sony:

USD 2799
EUR 3099 = 4080 USD
Swiss Francs 3809 = 4109 USD
£2799 = 4551 USD

Taxes may differ from country to country, but almost identical in USA and Switzerland. A worldwide distributor like Sony, who launches it's product from Japan, shouldn't they fix the prices in almost equal range?

Today we can order online on best prices, seems to be the only way to avoid this big price differences of 30%. Street price may again differ.

Question of discretionary purchasing power? Market share?
