Lunchtime Deal: Canon Slashes Australian Pricing

With the dollar so high, we're definitely in an electronics buyer's market: It's often cheaper to buy overseas. No doubt that's partly why Canon has shaken up pricing on over 95 imaging products, from digital cameras to printers.

For instance, the EOS 60D Premium Kit (with EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS) was $2400 and is now $2000. And the PIXMA MP5150 multifunction printer drops $50 to $129. New prices should have already taken effect at your favorite retailer this week, so make don't forget the local guys if you're comparing pricing online.
