That Swiss price appears to be a bargain as I know prices there traditionally are higher. I have checked out that post on which-canon-camera.com and it appears that could be the way to go as Duty and Shipping are paid and a warranty is supplied which is a major concern when buying across borders. Although some prices elsewhere are cheaper you might end up with a warranty that cannot be used easily in the event of a problem.Indeed a low Swiss price there. Since Switzerland is outside EU, customs in my country would add, just like for shipments from USA and any other non-EU country, local VAT and customs fee, making the camera land above my local price.
But for that price difference, I could actually buy a round-trip air ticket to the Alps and carry it home myself.
