Put it this way all people outside Britain.
5DMKIII with the 24-105mm is £3,500 or $5,600 dollars in UK.
In America the same kit is $4,100 or £2800! For you yanks to understand that is $1500 or £700 more for the same camera.
£3500 less vat @ 20% £700 = £2800
VAT is the issue not Canon, unless my sums are wrong
PS £3169 with just a quick look on http://www.camerapricebuster.co.uk/prod2678.html, best lowest price has been £3014 but that was probably Amazon so won't count that. So you could argue, taking vat out of the equation, it's actually cheaper in UK?
