XL1s KIT for $4100. Good price?

Hi,

I bought my XL1s KIT, BRAND NEW. Has camera body, lens, charger, mic, battery, shoulder strap, lens bag etc included.

I bought it in Andorra when on holiday (tax free country).

4100 Euros (about 4100 usd)

Did I get a good deal?

Thanks

Any price under the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $4700 USD should be considered a good price. Hope this helps,

I'm not sure where you are, but in the U.S. you can get the camera for $3,450 through B& H Photo. They are on the web. You might want to check them out. 100% reliable and ship anywhere, I think. (don't know about import taxes etc. - but that is a big price difference)

You could get it for 3800 in Sweden. (With tax)
That's the PAL version..

Are you saying that in the US the XL1s *KIT* is only $3,450?

$4100 is a fine price. Don't worry about how cheap you can get something. Sometimes it's worth more to get it right away when you need it.

Prices of XL1S, like any commodity, vary by the market. Like Chris said, anything below MSRP is a good price and with that, I'm locking this thread.
