    That is not what that dpreveiw.com forum cite states. As usual Rich has
    misread what was written. It actually has a subject line, "Canadian
    Dealers will not ship X100 to US customers". Not one mention of Amazon
    shipping out of the U.S.. As a matter of fact no mention of Amazon at
    all. That is, unless you pronounce "V-I-S-T-E-K" as "Amazon" in Canada.

    More Rich FUD.

    Could that be the reason we have Amazon operations in Austria, France,
    Canada, Germany, UK, China (Joyo.com), Japan, and the USA?

    More like "National marketing agreements."

    They do. With a wholly different price structure, even though the
    Canadian dollar is worth more than the U.S. dollar.

    Here's the screen you are greeted with on Amazon.com if you try to
    ship electronics to Canada. If you go to their explaination, they'll
    tell you why.

    Then, why on Earth did you use that dpreveiw.com cite with no reference
    to Amazon?

    Your OP did not provide evidence to support your allegation. If you
    just used your screen capture to demonstrate your point in the first
    place, you would have appeared to be less of a shit stirrer.

    I suspect the real reason lies with issues related to the complications
    and costs related to the process of clearing Canadian customs and tax
    collection for Amazon and its vendors. We have been through that before
    with your B&H bitching.

    I doubt it. Its more likely driven by the tastes and preferences of
    the different markets.
