Oh wow you are right!! I just looked at Henry's and put both in my cart and it came back saying that I qualified for free shipping....so with that it comes to just over 200 dollars cheaper than BH. Now to just push that trigger lol!
OOOp's I goofed BH is actually $191 and change cheaper than Vistek and Henry's. See what happens when you have about four tabs running at the same time lol! It tells me that the duty for lens across the border is duty free. BH incorporates all fees in the price as they act as the broker.
I am still going to search a few other stores just to make sure first but I think I may ust have to go with BH.

If you do order from across the border, call an agent from the store and confirm all the shipping and handling costs. I've received stuff before at my door along with a $50 customs receipt. I bought mine from Henry's in store in Ottawa. It was a little more expensive than what B&H are advertising, and that was with some big discount going on at the time. However, I believe shipping & handling from the states would have cost me more than what I paid.

I hear ya! I just checked Camera Canada where I actually purchased my 5d MarkII from and they are just $83.84 more than BH and that is with shipping insurance.....so I might be better off going that route. Oh the decisions surrounding this are enough for a headache to develop lol!! Never figured spending $2800.00 would be so hard! Just want to get the right deal.

Does anyone know if there are any better prices than what BH Photo has for the 17-40 right now.
Please don't say Adorama because I will never buy from there again...shipping was out of this world to Canada.

We do offer USPS shipping - you need to email me directly, tho' for that.

We will be announcing our new lower cost shipping option to Canada within the next couple of weeks - if you follow me on Twitter I'll announce it on there as soon as it's up-&-running!

BTW PLEASE note Adorama upcoming Holiday schedule; http://cot.ag/nfsgly (external link) please plan accordingly We appreciate your understanding & business

You are such a sweetie for replying but....unless you can beat Camera Canada's price I will deal in Canada. I am just looking for the best possible deal from the stores I know I trust. Don't get me wrong I love Adorama and have dealt there before just didn't like getting hit hard once it came across the border. I do see that the purchase of a lens qualities under the duty free umbrella tho soooo again you would have to PM me with some great price to sway me lol. Here is the pricing from Camera Canada and I know if I go to my local Future Shop store they will beat that price to get my business just like they did when I got my 24-105.
1257B002- Canon - 50mm 1.2L USM EF Lens $1,574.97
8806A002- Canon - 17-40mm f4.0L USM EF Lens $890.00
With tax and insurance the total is...
Order Total: $2,805.87
