I just reserved my 5DMK3 and 24-105 in Zurich, it came in at around £3190 which is significantly cheaper than the £3700 it will be over here.

Which store was this? I am seriously considering a trip to Zürich now :)

Is it possible to buy it taxfree in US if your exporting it privately? Then pay taxes in your own country?
That's possible in Sweden.

If you walk into a store and buy it, you're going to get charged any city/state taxes.  If you order online or on the phone, and have it shipped to another state where that company does not have a "presence," you won't get charged tax.  However, you're supposed to pay the "use tax" on your state taxes.  Don't know the rules regarding ordering online/phone and having it shipped out of the US -- try calling B&H.

On my international orders from Adorama, I've always paid the same price as USA customers.  But I think that's because prices in the US are always shown 'exclusive' of tax, aren't they?

I ordered mine (Kit with 24-105) here (Zurich):

4149 CHF
However prices may change, according to the web site.

Now I'm wondering how long it will take until I get mine...

btw. Zurich is well worth a visit anyway :)

the official MSRP in eurozone is 3299eur at launch (wich is roughly 3500USD + VAT)

pixxass.de is direct to canon, and they put the body up today for 3299.00
swiss prices are very similar

all retailers at launch will have same prices maybe except Italy where VAT laundry/fraud is national sport so lowest retail prices will likely be there

check whats happening now on 5D2 + 24105
first link italian price aggregator, second german. go figure where it's better to buy in europe (there are some risks involved tho)

Hi, I dealt with Daniel  profot.ch, they were very helpful and I received my reservation email today. Flights are looking at around £120-140 so I think it's worth it.

Cool, that's a little cheaper than what I'm paying but I bet that doesn't include the 8% tax.

I bought some Singh Ray filters from B&H a few years ago. The couriers thy use automatically add the tax and import duty and won't hand over the good until you pay for it. They even apply the tax and import duty after adding the delivery charges. Now, if you order from B&H, you have the option of calculating and paying the tax and duty at the time of purchase or when it arrives.

Here in Europe prices shown are normally including tax. Also in this case the 8% Swiss VAT are included.
The 8% seem to contribute to the lower prices for the MkIII compared to other European states. In France you pay 19.6%, in Germany 19%, in Danmark 25% VAT.

take some pictures at home and leave them on your cf. Bring the cf to the states (or zurich)
In case they want to see the camera show them pictures you took home on a previous date on the new camera of course .....

You're so wise.

If the 5D3 will display photos from another camera, would it?

it will, you can take a card out of a 1D and put it in a 5D and view the raws or vise versa, or even an SD card from a 1D and view it on a rebel

Never had to do that before so it's just a curiosity, I assume that I wouldn't be able to view 1DX Raws on my old Rebel without a firmware update? and that won't happen.

hmm I'm not sure, I was in syndey on holiday with my wife taking pictures and one of the photo guys that sets up there and does the paid portrait things offered to take a pic of us on my card so i gave him the card out of my 1Dmk3 he put it into his 5Dmk2 and shot a few photos then gave me the card back and i put it into the my 1D3 and it could view the pics, with the 5D2 being a newer model I was suprised it worked but i'm not sure how far backward compatible this would go
