why are cameras so expensive in the uk?

I actually couldn't answer that question, its definitely partly to do with VAT which is 20% which is a lot more than US states but also I believe there may be associated costs for transport so the US is less expensive to export to from Asia than it is to get it to the UK. But otherwise, i dont really know. The Df in particular is the most ridiculous example I have ever seen when it comes to cameras as the thought of paying £2750 for it in the UK, compared with £1600 from asia seems absolutely bonkers. I am more than happy paying lets say 10-20% more to give my business to a local shop and have a UK warranty but an extra £1100+ is just silly.
