They can keep putting the price up until people stop buying from them instead of other places.
Maybe they didn't realise how many people would order from them and now that they realise they only have to undercut Teds by a smaller margin, they're doing so because nobody else is competing with them on a low price.
Yeah! I thought at much, like anything else, it's a profit deal, but you'd have to be pretty insane to pay that much for a grey import :\ I'd be surprised if they sold many more at that price, but I'm sure it will come back down after a while! It's strange they upped it by so much, EGlobal have it quite cheap, and they have a statement which says that their price will not go up during the pre order period, I didn't think company's actually did it, hence my surprise and post.
CameraPro's cameras are Australian stock, so i believe they come with a warranty from Canon Australia. being in Melbourne shouldn't be an issue since you'd go through Canon for warranty matters.
that said, i would ask CameraPro about it when you call them.
Ah right! I've never bought such an item interstate, so I wasn't sure if I'd have to go back to where I bought it or just deal with Canon directly
Thanks for the info, I'll definitely ring them and check first!
Edit:// Just called then and made my order 5D III w/ 24-105mm
Warranty is dealt with directly with Canon too so it's all good! They said the current ETA for shipment is within the first 2 weeks of April
Thanks very much to nightstar
who brought Camera Pro and Leederville to my attention!
