Canon 5D Mark II: Availability?


US-based photographers who can't find a Canon 5D Mark II at their favorite (or any) retailer, can always fly to Paris and buy it there. I'm told by a visitor to Paris that she'll be buying one at the retail price of Euros 2400 or 2000 (the latter when clawing back one's "detaxe" or VAT at the airport). Euros 2000 is equivalent to $2740 at today's rate of exchange.

An alternative is to fly to Shanghai where, according to Ryan Pyle, every camera store is flush with Canon 5D Mark II's at same price as here.

Just a thought.
