While it seems simple to compare the pricing " injustice" by simply using an exchange rate, that is would be so far from how pricing is actually determined in different countries and markets. The USD price of the camera is based on US consumer purchasing power, the exchange rate and fair market value.
It's not fair but hey, if you think that US consumers are getting a great deal, go ahead and exchange your money, buy the camera from a US seller , and see what price you end up paying. After you do this and pay about an extra $1000 USD you'll understand the price and exchange rates don't work out that way. It's all based on relative purchasing power... Not the actual exchange rates.
For those interested in market pricing strategy
In Romania 16 000 RON means 3.680 EURO or 4.878 US$ ... so, jbwise01, just empty words
