Does anyone know what it takes to get Henry's to price match? I'll be up in St. Catharines this weekend and if I can pick up the camera for less than in the US, I am going to do it. I'll just have family mail me the box later.
I phoned them first to confirm that they price match. They did confirm...then I took a copy of the advert with the company's name, address and phone # on the letterhead (so they could see it was a legit company) off the internet.

Also the advert describes the make/model and lists the price.

So far....so good. I've bought a camera body and an expensive lens this way from them.

Just remember Henry's will only price-match against authorized Canadian retailers.

The Camera Store told me that all mail order out of Alberta is supposed to charge HST. Their web page does.
If I get dinged for it later, oh well, but until then, I'll have my K5

Hmmmnnn. I was wondering if that was the case. I price matched vs Canadian retailers. That's good info for Allison.

I was looking to buy it in Montreal. I called Simons but they said they expect them next week.

Too bad about Prodigital, I bought a lot of stuff from them but this price is a little too much on the high side IMHO. For the records the K-7 was 1499$ at release (Simons).

well, no luck in getting the k5 at Henry's last weekend ( I really wanted to do a price match, but the taxes are still higher than if I wait and order it online (no tax), plus... hubby will flip unless I can get it for $1399.... oh, and then there was the whole send the box back to the states afterwards deal. Too much hassle.

Still, I find it really positive that there are competitive prices in Canada. Hopefully this will equate to a price drop at B&H/Adorama/Amazon as soon as they good stock levels. Then I can join the K5 club ;o)
