Maybe if Canon read the forums or a retailer could answer this one:
Prices in Europe for the Canon EOS 6d are pre-ordering at €1,999 why in Ireland are we 'EXPECTED' to pay €2,200?
I would appreciate a reasonable answer as this sort of pricing I hate to say deters me from buying in Ireland. and instead importing from e.g. Germany.
It cant be the VAT difference as Germany are on 19% i believe so the difference doesnt come to €200 more.
Lenses are also more.
Forgive my tone but it is annoying to say the least and not good for Retailers if this RRP pricing is governed by Canon.... anyone?
however if I was to walk into a Canon retailer in Germany and buy a 6D with say a 16-35mm L II
example from www.pixass.de
as a random German Site also you can check www.idealo.de
for same products:
These would cost €1,359 for the 16-35 L II and €1,999 for 6D Total €3,358 + shipping was <€20
Compared to a retailer in Ireland it would be €3,708 why is there a €340 odd euro difference this equates to a little over 9% price difference - so would a shop say ok so we'll take a bit of that if someone was to haggle a bit?
