Curiously if I do the same exercise for Canon it seems that their products, correcting for tax and exchange rates, are 10% more expensive in the UK than Switzerland...

That could be explained by the difference in VAT between the UK and Switzerland I guess (20% vs 8%). The other way around is likely just trying to profit from the general high cost of living in Switzerland.

No, I removed VAT from all prices before making the comparison.

Either Canon think the UK will pay more for their products than Switzerland, or vice-versa for Nikon, or the way the companies are structured means that their differential costs differ, or they are making different assumptions (e.g. about how the exchange rates will behave over a period of 6 months or more). Or some combination of all of these (plus factors I've not thought of).
