A fair point, distant.star.
Capitalism is simply taking capital of some description and carrying out a process to increase that capital. Rather than a long-winded essay on why you're correct, I'll just say all our Canon gear will originate in one of a few factories and will end up anywhere on the planet. Hmmm, it's almost as if Canon are a global company who artificially carve-up the planet for their own gains. Holy artiface, Batman!! We should do something about this!
Do Canon still provide a worldwide warrany with all L-series lenses? If so, there's no problem buying grey imports.
However, the one good thing about supporting local businesses is the fact you can walk in and noodle about with the item before deciding to buy it. I wonder what'll happen when all the local shops go out of business and you can only buy goods via the web?
