From what I have seen there is also a 25% mark-up from the US equivalent price (over and above the exchange rate), which is a lot - must be the price we pay for getting a 5 year Canon warranty here.


I don't know what the situation in Aus is but in the UK people often say the same when looking at US vs UK prices but overlook that US prices tend not to include purchase tax whereas UK retail prices do include 20% purchase tax - going some way to account for the difference.

In the US it is relatively easy to avoid the sales tax, especially on items like camera's.
