$2799 canuck bucks here http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/canon-eos-5d-mark-ii-21-1mp-dslr-camera-with-24-105mm-is-usm-lens-kit-select-stores-only/10115083.aspx?path=9472065442f2805dfc5ec8e58f754fc6en02 and at Henry's, body only is exactly $2K.  The exchange rate is slightly less than par today at about $1.01   You'd have to ask that other chap who recently ordered from Henrys about what he paid to ship across the border.
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

My friend in California just bought the 5D Mark II kit with the 24-105L for $2800 from Henry's.  Aside from the screaming deal that is, she got the free shipping deal they're offering.

If Ryusui is correct- you could get free shipping and pay only $1,979.22 USD from here: http://www.henrys.com/

Henry's has been sold out of the body only for a while now.  At least - it hasn't been showing up on their website.  just the kit.

Even if you pay for shipping, it only comes to about $12.  My friend says when she added the camera to her cart, it showed the shipping cost.  On her PayPal statement though, she only saw the cost of the camera.

FYI, seems like justsomedude is right; Henry's might be out of stock on the body only.  I can't find it anywhere when searching.  But still, even if you already have or don't want the 24-105, paying $800 for that lens is a steal.  You could sell it for $900 or $1000 and be selling it less than most online retailers.

Hmm... too bad. Sorry, I guess I'm not being very helpful but another large Toronto retailer to watch is Vistek: http://www.vistek.ca/camerastore/DigitalSLRCameras.aspx but they currently have the body on for $2300 which wouldn't save you anything. Futureshop has bodies in stock at $1999.99 CDN but probably wouldn't ship to the US since they're owned by BestBuy. Henrys had the body a couple weeks ago- check the site daily, maybe you'll get lucky.

I ordered a 5dm2 from Henrys several weeks ago and paid $2,762.15 ( after Can to US exchange) plus $82.86 ( foreign transaction fee) for a total of $2845 charged to Paypal. I also received it 1 day from Toronto to Philadelphia,PA.

This was the kit for the 24-105L. I don't need the 24-105L so I'm selling that ( white box) for $950.00. which will bring the body cost down to $1895.00. Just an amazing deal on an amazing camera that suits my needs for many years to come.

Henry's was a delight to deal with. No hiccups and as I said received in 24hrs with the standard $12.00 shipping that comes through the USPS.

They have been on sale all over since Thanksgiving.  The best prices are in Canada.  The warranty is for USA and Canada, so US residents lose nothing by purchasing from Canadian stores.

Here is a link to a 5D stock tracker.  CR also has links to popular stores, which give them a few dollars for referrals at no cost to the buyer.

I had a great experience with Henry's Camera in Canada and got a 5D MK ll body with US warranty shipped for $1,992.  A rep told me they have been selling a lot to US customers. The shipping was very fast, and using PayPal without an account couldn't have been easier.
I'm under the impression they regularly get batches of the body because they often sell out at those prices.

If I were to do it again, I'd order one and wait for their next batch.

Lowest price around from a legit dealer
Great customer service
US warranty
Fast, low-cost shipping
No tax
