Have you tried adding to cart at B&H?

$2975 for the body only.
$3499 for the kit.

B&H can't show low prices outside of cart due to MAP. PhotoPrice (external link)says that B&H is $300-400 cheaper than Henry's after all tax/shipping/exchange according to their calculations.

wow,Thx ! i didn't know about this chart prices.

Aden Camera Currently has the Canon EOS 5D MK III w/ EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM (external link)
for $3585.00 and the body for $3079 which isn't a bad deal. Just wish the sale didn't
end tomorrow, as I can't afford anything until April.

Doesn't matter what the cart shows for B&H... they can't ship bodies to Canada anymore apparently...

You are only 2 hours from Detroit,can open a shipping account adress in Detroit,Mi here http://www.mydetroitad​dress.com …8:1:13718486579​386::NO::: (external link)
I got many items online from US ; many people from Windsor are using this service; they don't charge much ; as soon as the package arrived to their location they called/emailed me to pick it up.The problem is you'll take it across the border and still have to pay taxes to Canada Customs.

and once I'm in Detroit, I'm 2 hours from home...

if everything works out beautifully (and how often does that happen with crossing a border twice this quickly) I'd be home in a little over 4 hours... I dunno that this is worth it

Adorama still ships this to Canada. Apparently the final price is even cheaper than B&H.

Really? At what point does it say that -- it lets me go all the way to the payment screen without saying they won't ship to Canada (and the page is showing the shipping and customs clearing costs for Canada fine as well).

On the slightly related note of ridiculous Canadian prices, the Lee filters 82mm WA adapter, between $60 and $65 from pretty much any US supplier (and totally overpriced even then for what is simply a metal ring) is $119 from Vistek. And even at that price they don't have it in stock.

It has been a few months since this came out, but based on this:

If its 3300 + tax vs say 3000 USD its worth it i you dont get charged importing it,if you do then probably not ... So i guess its a gamble :)

Plus you will likely get charged 1-3% on your CC for the currency change

London isnt so far though

It really depends who you get at the border my wife and i are cdn but live in MI now and we have loaded our SUV at least 10 times and they have never charged us a penny even after telling them and them searching and seeing thousands of dollars of things we said we were living in canada. But that is through the Nexus line... and i think we are just lucky to be honest.

welcome to canada! we may not have the most competitive prices for camera gear but we do generally have stereotypically nice and polite people here :)

like others have said, henry's and vistek are the main online retailers with aden camera being another potential option. if you are close enough to the canada/usa border you can always get stuff shipped to a mailbox/receiver and drive over to pick up. i live near toronto so i have ordered stuff from b&h shipped to cbiusa (external link) and picked it up as part of day trips to the land of ihop and cheesecake factory.

secondary and travel: eos m || ef-m 18-55/3.5-5.6 || ef-m 22/2 pancake || ef-m to ef/ef-s adapter
flashes: speedlite 430ex ii || speedlite 90ex
