i would not go to best buy since i have to pay tax there. most best buy sellers lacks of experience on camera technology and there are no variety camera accessories for you to pick. i would check either of the two following:
1. samys in costa mesa, or
2. samys in fairfax
whichever closes to your location. in addition, i think that samys offers no tax throughout holiday season (currently going).
best wishes on your hodiday shopping/upgrading
I pretty much ONLY order online for things like this....to avoid the nearly 10% tax. That adds up with $3K cameras and $2K+ lenses....
I would never be caught dead in the black friday sales crowds. I'd rather have some cocktails, watch football on tv or hang with friends. I'll order online....amazon prime and free shipping are my friends, I merely click, and people get their gifts. Easy peasy.
if you read very closely to original question from the thread's owner, then you will find out that he/she comes from outside U.S... i guess he/she comes from cannada
i DO NOT think that you can make an online purchase of canon gears from canon authorized retailers as previous threads has stated....
