if the price difference is huge, enough for me to forget about the warranty, i will definitely buy it. i bought my 5D mark I from another country because it was approximately 30% cheaper from the units available where im from...

Well if you buy from Canada it's the same warranty. Your dollar is stronger, so you might have an advantage. You could very well get a 5DII for about $2500 US (on exchange) or so (don't quote me). Not sure what shipping is like the other direction but if you go ground from US to Canada you get KILLED with Brokerage fees up the wazoo.
