Buying a Canon D10 in Toronto - Photography

Guys, Wife is there with work, and wondered about the best place to buy a D10 in Toronto. Questions 1) Are they a lot cheaper there than in the UK? £1,250 GBP = 2,814.11 is good price I can find for body only. [url]www.jessops.co.uk[/url] 2) Is it worth paying the extra for a UK warranty, and peace of mind that gives? 3) Would we be able to reclaim any Canadian Tax back? 4) Would we get VAT slapped on it coming into the UK? 5) Anyone suggest a store in Toronto in a central area of the city? All comments ...

    Default Buying a Canon D10 in Toronto

    Guys,

    Wife is there with work, and wondered about the best place to buy a
    D10 in Toronto.

    Questions
    1) Are they a lot cheaper there than in the UK? £1,250 GBP = 2,814.11
    is good price I can find for body only. [url]www.jessops.co.uk[/url]

    2) Is it worth paying the extra for a UK warranty, and peace of mind
    that gives?

    3) Would we be able to reclaim any Canadian Tax back?

    4) Would we get VAT slapped on it coming into the UK?

    5) Anyone suggest a store in Toronto in a central area of the city?

    All comments welcome.

    There is no such camera as the D10. Perhaps you meant the 10D.

    I second that... very nice shops, nice and helpful staff - knows the
    concerns of international buyers

    best of all, if you just want to wander around the rather large shop
    checking out what's there - they'll leave you alone

    and be careful with that!!! There is an official form (Canadian
    government) and another one which looks pretty official. The
    difference is that one will charge you for handling besides offering
    to credit your VISA or whatever. AFAIK the government will only send
    you a check, but not charge for handling.

    Upon exiting the country you'll have to get your receipts stamped by
    customs. They'll check the merchandise - so you'd better keep it handy
    and not stuff it under piles of used underware or other embarassing
    things.

    ask the shops about warranty... At the very minimum, they'l let you
    send in your camera. Canon and Nikon will refuse warranty on CAN
    hardware - at least in Austrialand.

    Guys,

    Thanks for all responses. In the end decided the hassle of getting it
    back over the pond for repai far outweighed the benefits of the
    cheaper price.

    Also, someone else has advised of a lower UK price that I hadn;t seen,
    also EOS Magazine is carrying a £100 cashback off a camera or £200 of
    a camera and lens, so I can get a UK warrantied model for around the
    £1100 mark.

    Cheers
