Canadian Dollar Dropping – Good for Canadian & US shoppers

Just noticed (I’m sure others have too)
It might be time for American shoppers to visit their neighbors to the north for some savings. The Canadian dollar is down to 85 cents USD.

Quick Example:

40D w/17-85 IS @ BHPhoto $1449.99 USD
40D  w/17-85 IS @ Henrys $1449.95 CAD

So a Canadian buying at B&H will actually be paying $1720 CAD for the camera. An American shopping in Canada would be paying $1215 USD.

Obviously customs and tax need to be factored in. I’m not sure how it works in the US.

With the economic issues currently, I do not see Canon correcting this before Christmas. They have to move cameras. It took over 6 months for Canon to correct pricing when the Canadian dollar came on par with the US dollar. Pricing was still better in the US however.

Buy in Canada Canadians.

Buy in the US Americans (to support your economy). We won’t be insulted if you do shop up here though.
