Pentax K 5IIS body only for $559.99 free shipping to US, no tax, no duties @ebay.ca
Posted By: bennyxyz, 09-12-2014, 06:19 AM

What a pathetic deal for Canadian! Need to pay 13% GST and US buyer just pay for the Camera only... Almost place order on it until I realize the tax...

Not sure if link is allowed here. Try Ebay.ca it's just on the first page. 4 Units left at the time posting.

Here, let me help with that link.

BTW, the tax is not "a pathetic deal" for Canadians, just a fact of life. That is part of what pays for your healthcare, social services, etc. People in the US pay state sales taxes for a similar purpose. Ask a New Yorker about buying from B&H or Adorama!

Anyone have experience with that seller? They have a very good feedback profile (99.8%), but I've not heard the same positive opinions of them here on PF as for Prodigital2000, for example. They have some other very good deals going right now...

Thanks. I'm not complaining the tax I should pay, just in this deal, US buyer pay NO tax and CA buyer pay at least 8% tax... I'd pass and wait for an used one...

I wonder if Black Friday deals will be this good. I might just have to grab one.

For the K-5 IIs, yes, all gone, but there's another crazy good Pentax deal from that seller that's still available... Quite tempted myself, but I've been (so far successfully) resisting. K-3 body-only for $US860. Nine remaining...

Why did you have to tell me that? Now I'm considering it. I wonder if there will be a better deal in November for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. I just want the body only. Not any other superfluous stuff.
