My question would be will they charge fees going out of the country?  I always step back and look at things when I have to buy things out of the states...

My understanding is there is no duty and they will ship it by USPS via Canada Post so there will be no brokerage fees.  However, I don't know all that for a fact... another member had the same questions a few days ago and was about to place an order... I'll search to see if he made a final posting about it...

I'm very interested to find out about those of you who actually got their 5D II from Canada to the states.  Did you get charge extra fees other than your normal shipping?

I'm a new member here but I've been lurking on this site for the past year.  I was waiting on the release of the 5d Mark III but due to the last two big "anouncements" that did not include a new 5D Mark III, I pulled the trigger this past Tuesday to take advantage of Amazon's reduced price.  Needless to say I felt pretty lucky since Amazon raised its price an hour or two later.

This event opened the floodgates of a lot of pent-up waiting and now I have Canon fever.  I also purchased the 8 - 15 fisheye, the 100mm macro IS, the mp-e 65, the mt-24ex flash along with a lot of other sundries.

By tomorrow it all arrives!  The night before I was contemplating buying through Henry's in Canada which would have been a great deal also (even with Paypal's 2.9% cut--I live in the U.S.).

I've learned a lot on this site. 

A big thank-you to neuroamatomist for his insightful posts!

Congratulations mark!
You must be excited and not to mention the big relief from waiting. I've used my friend's 5d mark ii. It's such an awesome camera. Happy shooting  8)
Like many i too have been on the fence for quite sometime now and i am not sure how long i can hold it off  ::)

Happy hunting as they say.

The fact that this camera is soo long in the tooth is a testament to what a good camera it is.
Even now, that 21mp sensor is still proving hard to over take.

Some nice lenses you've ordered, not gonna try and guess where your interests lie  ;)

I'm also taking the plunge to the 5DM2 this month, finally decided I couldn't put the invest off an further.  Should complement my 7D with 70-200 IS F2.8 II  & 17-40 lens

I will cry if the 5DM3 is announced before the end of this year.

I won't, I'm happy waiting using my 7D until the 5D3 gets announced (and then i'll probably get a used 5D2, it's a great camera and always will be regardless of what gets released in future).

With that list of lenses, the fisheye and 2 macros, they're going to hold up value a lot, even if you lose a bit on the body when new models come out it won't matter so much.
Too much gear, too little space.

That's what I was determined to do until I realize if I dont get it now, something always will go wrong and my money for this camera all of a sudden wont be there when I need it, haha... I've got 2 kids... I know all too well how these sudden emergencies work haha.
