(Yes, shot with an EOS 5D. But you knew that!)

We don't have VAT here in the US, but many states charge a sales tax on some or all of the items purchased within that state. California has a substantial sales tax for items like the Canon EOS 5D (although still far less than the VAT added to purchases made in Europe). Unlike Europe where a tourist with a passport and/or a visa may be able to get around the VAT, I'm not sure dodging the state sales tax in California is as easy.

That said, what you might want to do is to look at highly respected online stores like B&H (New York), or KEH (Atlanta, Georgia) and have the 5D shipped to where you are staying in California. In America, if you order from a company in one state, but take possession in an other state where the company does not physically do business, you don't pay any state sales tax in either state!

But if you do want to buy the camera in California, I would recommend Canoga Camera, or Samy's Camera.

Good luck, the EOS 5D is a terrific camera.

Online pricing from various stores varies almost 1000. Anyone know why there is such a big swing? I am ready to put down cash on this purchase.

At Canoga Camera the camera and 24-105 mm f:4.0 lens is packaged at about $3500.00
