Buying in Canada?

Am considering purchasing the new 16-55 f2.8 from Henry's in Canada, as the price in Canadian dollars is $1499, which today is approximately $1135 U.S. dollars.  The price from a U.S. dealer is $1398, so there could be significant savings. However, anything sent by post over $800 is subject to duty.  So, I wonder whether a purchase from the Canadian dealer would pencil out with significant savings.

Sony's warranty may also be an issue, as Sony Canada and Sony U.S. provide different warranty, although I have yet to have a warranty claim.

Anybody knowledgeable on this?
