Like others, I have bought from B&H a few years ago but with the strength of 
the Australian dollar the differences in prices are not much now. I believe 
some companies have also adjusted their regional pricing system. I had 
purchased Swarovski binoculars from both Adelaide Optics and also from Bintel, 
but most recently I could not get a response from Bintel for a Swarovski Scope 
so I did what a number of birding colleagues in Townsville have been doing, 
asked our local photographic shop for a quote. That proved a winner all round 
and also, the camera store is now stocking Swarovski bins and scopes. 
Townsville has got a healthy population of active birders, but I suspect there 
must be options to go local elsewhere. In the case of Swarovski the after sales 
service in Australia is fantastic.
