It's the UK what did you expect :D

It equals US$7,400, I think I might get it in the US and have a holiday at the same time :)

A roundtrip ticket on British Airways from London to NYC is £376.80

sounds like you save even if you flew here just for the 1D Mark IV! [Note thats like a week here though]

Or I could stay in the UK and buy two-and-a-half 5D Mark IIs :D

Nah! :)

Probably not a bad idea, just beware of customs. They can be a pain.

Mastamarek wrote in post #8856167 (external link)
there are no customs once your camera is out of the box :D been there, done that. lol.

EDIT: you might just get a weird look from everyone around you when your carrying 6 laptops, 5 cameras, 2 xboxes and a playstation onto a flight. lol.

Even after paying duty on my B&H sourced 500mm f/4 it was still cheaper that buying in the UK. (the flight was done on air miles)

I'm presuming UK prices will drop a tad from that. After all what was the Mark III on release?

You can get around customs by purchasing in the States and having a trusted friend here or relative ship it to the UK as a gift.. It's not taxable at that point ;) Not strictly legal either..but the chances of them catching you is slim, how can they prove it's not really a gift. ;)

p.s. The price is listed at $4,999 USD :)

Could Customs open it and clobber you with taxes though even if you put gift?

They scan it, inspect it, etc...but there is no way to prove that your friend in the States didn't send you an early xmas gift.. They won't call you a liar or anything. I just send the receipts and such over separately via fed ex/dhl document envelope ;) I've done it before with expensive car parts for my friends in the UK.

Hmm, an interesting proposition :)

A holiday weekend in NY would be nice though :) I could just flat pack the box in my suitcase and carry the camera in my hand :)

It's a thought, flying over to get it or having someone post it to you are cheaper than buying in the UK...VAT pwnz you guys..

A quote from http://blog.vincentlaf​oret.com/ (external link) Regarding his 1d4 video Nocturne.

"At one point I found myself shooting at 12,800 ASA by mistake - and I didn’t even notice any noise on the rear LCD in the skies… 6400 ASA is the new 1600 ASA - maybe even the new 800 ASA." - Vincent Laforet

Funny how the black screen surround makes the screen looks smaller :)

Still cheaper than UK. We should all charter a flight to the US and come back with new Mark IVs :)
