$3499.00 USD
+$25.05 S&H
+$0.00 Duty
+$15.21 Brokerage Fee
+$454.87 Tax (13%, Ontario)
$3994.13 USD
x 1.0186 exchange rate (includes 3% CC fee)
= $4068.42 CAD

vs. $4292 cheapest Canadian option.
I forgot about the 3% CC exchange 'spread' but even so - the savings is still well worth it to shop USA. For a long time in Nov/Dec timeframe it was way cheaper for the 5D2's and kits out of Canada for some reason.

The warranties are North American and from what I have read you merely send it to Canon Canada for repair if need be.

Foreign exchange fee is 2.5% for majority of Canadian CCs (see the table: http://www.fcac-acfc.gc.ca/eng/resources/publications/paymentoptions/servicefees/CCSerFeesTab-eng.asp)

I preordered the MKIII kit on B&H and all said and done I was charged just under 5k in CAD.

You must have got the kit lens too for that price - no?

Yes, I ordered it with the 24-105 kit lens. BTW, B&H charges the full amount right away, unlike pre-orders from within US which get charged only when it ships. Sneaky policy.

The Camera Store (Calgary) $3800
https://www.thecamerastore.com/products/canon/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-body
Vistek $3800
http://www.vistek.ca/store/DigitalSLRs/261855/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-body.aspx
McBain $3800
http://www.mcbaincamera.com/productdetail.php?mcbain_id=0200522


The Camera Store says "price is MSRP only and is subject to change".  So it looks like they're collecting $3800 for pre-oders with the final price yet to be determined (could be higher, could be lower).

Thanks for this thread.  Helpful in making my decision.  BTW, I agree, I'd never buy anything from the US if the only shipping option was FedEx.  They've charged me $50 for a free part (wrench, 2lbs), when i refused and said "Send it back" they called me a few days later and said the brokerage fee was $35.  I told them call me back when it's $10 otherwise send it back.  The manufacture got it back and later sent it to me as "a gift".
