Been thinking of getting either the Panasonic E80 or E100 units stateside what with the increase in value of the Canadian dollar as well, even with having no Canadian warranty the price for buying in Canada seems ridiculous, at close to $1,000CAD extra for the privilege of buying Canadian! I keep hearing that buying things like tools in Canada is way cheaper than buying USA but this doesn't hold when buying electronics, especially new electronics. Can anyone shed some light on why we up here in the North are being gouged? And it isn't just the online retailers. I can buy items from B&M stores from close to the border cities and have them shipped to the border or sent directly into Canada and still pay at least 25% less than buying locally. Something is WRONG with that picture...
