    I know what MSRP is, but I thought there was a lower VAPM, or something like that, that was less than MSRP and dealer could not sell below that cost or Nikon would pull their product line from that store.

    That is why B&H, Adorama, and others now throw in free stuff plus a 2 or 4% rebate if you are a member of their club.
    That is something Nikon USA has done (It is called MAP), not Nikon Canada. I'm sure Nikon Canada has a minimum price (Nikon's share of the sale), but if the store is willing to sell the lens at a lower price, which would out their own share, I doubt Nikon Canada really cares.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    35 1.8dx is a good lens - I had one when I shot with a D90. It will be great on your D7000.

    Thanks PB_PM...MAP is what I could not remember. With VAPM I had the three letters and one wrong letter, just in the wrong order.

    I assumed that MAP was applied to EU, Asia, and North America. My hunch is that the Canadian dealers had to go lower (below MAP) on price to keep the business in Canadian instead of losing business to B&H and the other NYC dealers.

    Meh... there's not much savings compared to buying stuff south of the border unless you make a trip out of it. Shipping + HST on import + questionable warranties usually makes buying in Canada the better bet.

    Canadian law around manufacturers setting prices for goods is different from the States, which is why we have 'suggested' retail pricing.
    D700, 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII, 24-70mm f/2.8, 14-24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4G, 200mm f/4 Micro, 105mm f/2.8 VRII Micro, 35mm f/1.8, 2xSB900, 1xSB910, R1C1, RRS Support...

    ... And no time to use them.
