SD10 is available in Canada

To Canadians who might be interested in getting the SD10 in Canada:

http://www.henrys.com , a Toronto chain? has the SD10 listed at $1999 Canadian with no shipping. This appears to be cheaper than most US prices. It comes with a special caveat that it is not returnable. After my experience trying to get one from New York through B&H, I'm looking into this one.

What sort of problems did you have with B&H?

Re: SD10 is available in Canada

Ordered the camera. Credit card was debited day 1. For the next 3 days I received emails to the effect that my address could not be verified, despite my having been a customer 2 times previously, having their catalog delivered to my address etc. It became surreal/comic when they asked me to send a phone bill: the one I sent was unacceptable because it was for a phone without a wire, making it a "wireless bill", not a phone bill. At that point I had to give up, because I couldn't believe what was happening. All I can say is that I am definitely a "false positive". Somehow they saved me from being defrauded by refusing to sell me a camera and to believe me when I say who I say I am. At any account, I've always been happy with B&H but can't go back. But I would recommend it, although I wrote up my experience on BizRate.

Anyway, up to now, this meant that I couldn't get the camera I wanted in Canada. We still live in the cartel era up here. MSRP is the price that goes, so when Canon says an EOS Rebel costs $1,500 Can with lens, that's what it costs, everywhere, all the time. This is about $200 more after exchange than the price ($999 US) 100 km away in Bellingham Washington. For something like the Sigma you're out of luck.

Re: SD10 is available in Canada

I will be buying an SD10 in Canada soon. What does it mean it is not returnable?? You must be able to return it to their supplier if something is defective. Have you tried Broadway Camera in BC? Same price, but they happen to be authorized dealers.

http://www.bccamera.com

At least they have it in stock, unlike Henry's.

I will be waiting till the body is sold separately in Canada. I don't want to pay for two lenses I won't use.

Re: SD10 is available in Canada

I got my 1st SD10 from bccamera.com... Hopefully getting my 2nd SD10 (for the wife) from there too very, very soon!

I'm in Ontario so only have to pay one tax (GST), and they also offer free shipping.
