| p.2 #15 · Canon Stops B&H & others from shipping certain items to Canada |
I always have to laugh when people post about how much cheaper B&H is and then cite Henry's or Vistek - two of the highest-priced photo retailers on earth - as examples to prove their point. There are a lot of Canadian retailers that sell Canon and Nikon gear for less than B&H, and they are much more honest and reputable too.
Agreed. Unless they have a really good sale, their prices are usually higher. That's why I always use photoprice to check prices out for the best deal once taxes and shipping are taken into account.
For me, I can get a 5D MKIII w 24-105 for $750 less buy buying it from B&H vs. buying it from anywhere in Canada. If I was just to buy the body alone, there would be some minor savings buying but not enough to offset the ease of buying it locally.
Another example for the reverse side of things... you can get the grip for the MKIII for $100 less in Canada (from BC) than anywhere in the States. So, again, it pays to shop around first. The issue, at least from my point of view, is doing your research, knowing what something can go for and then having certain avenues closed.
And to echo some of the other posters comments, yes, B&H is very accommodating. Just contact them directly. Great shop.
