Fellow Torontonians: Where did you buy your camera?

I'm considering buying an XL2 or DVX. Vistek seems to be the only place in the area that sells them.

Anybody had any positive or negative experiences purchasing equipment through them?

or does anyone know of another reputable place in the area?

Thank You.

I bought from the US - BHPhotovideo.com . Still ended up being cheaper then Vistek or Henrys - ship via Canadapost, just pay GST/PST and like $20 brokerage fee.

Canon Canada tells me they will not honor the warrantee on cameras purchased from an online US supplier like BHPhoto. It could be an expensive hassle shipping the camera to the States for service if something were to go wrong and that's a very expensive piece of gear to go warrantee-less. Did you investiate this first and figure out a work-around?
