I can tell you that in Hong Kong the kit is HK$ 34,980 roughly US$ 4,509

Body only is HK$ 27,480 roughly US$ 3,542.

They may be able to discount slightly or offer some extra benefits such as cards etc when purchasing. Plus, attractive installment-plans on local credit cards are normally available.

Added: In case you were wondering the Nikon D800 body is HK$ 26,800, the D800E HK$ 29,800 and the D4 HK$ 52,800. Canon 5D Mark II body is now HK$ 16,800.

The cheapest I found in Perth, Australia for body alone is $3599 and kit at $4899. Not sure if its a grey import though.

I'm not sure I understand "grey" Surely if it is being sold by a reseller on Australian soil it is a warranty backed product. If you buy from an online seller and the camera comes from OS then that would signify a grey product and you would have no warranty. That is unless you buy from someone like DigitalRev where they provide the warranty for you. Quite interestingly they say that you could take it to a reputable Canon dealer and if the warranty claim is legitimate then they will pay for repairs or whatever.

I am in Iceland, and the camera stores here do not really list the 5D3 yet - the website will generally just say "call for information on availability".  However, one store gives the price as ISK 729.900 - which translates to $5887. 

As for myself, I bought mine from Adorama - got it in the first shipment, and ended up paying around $4500 (after shipping cost, VAT, VAT on the shipping cost, custom form preparation fees and so on).

Did you get the camera body only or kit?  If you got the body only, it may have been cheaper to fly, pick it up, get a short vacation out of it and fly back haha
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Here in BKK you currently get the 5D3 body/kit at an authorized dealer for 109,900/143,900 THB ~ 3,570/4,676 USD ~ 2,707/3,545 EUR.
You can get 7% VAT refund on top of that.

In Norway the cost is (shop FotoVideo):
5D3+24-105 kit = NOK 35895 / USD 6448 (with VAT) and NOK 28716 / USD 5158 (without VAT)
5D3 body only = NOK 27985/ USD 5027 (with VAT) and NOK 22388 / USD 4021 (without VAT)

I will call this rather expensive, however due to legislation we have a 5 year "warranty" which reduces the pain somewhat ...

I live in United Arab Emirates and here 5D Mark III cost 14999AED which is around 4075USD. I did not see the kit but it might cost around 20000AED which is  5181USD
I'd like to say for those who do not live here that there is no Taxes at all......
Of course tax is hidden in customs or other "things" but this is another story.
Comparing US market prices to others I  say that US Market is specific and huge and big players like BH Photo, Amazon etc. can push the prices down more than Canon Products in country of origin.
Try look at other products not necessarily electronics and compare prices
IN UAE if I wish to order Canon 5D mark II from BH Photo I will PAY 3499$+shipment less than 100$ plus customs around 150$= 3749$=13796AED approximately. Still cheaper than in country which doesn't have TAXES at all  ......   :)

Body only
3299,- EUR

Kit with 24-105
3999,- EUR

IF(!) you find it, Body and Kit are difficult to find, even though Canon Germany said its in good supply, its rare....
Amazon Germany is still not selling it yet (and the Kit is not even mentioned in their database)
